WHEN:          7pm on Friday, October 28, 2022 to 7am on Saturday, October 29, 2022
WHERE:       Small parking lot on Oakwood Avenue side between the church and school buildings
PURPOSE:    To experience being homeless, and to introduce young people to the foundations of the Catholic Social Teaching principles and the two feet of service and justice.

Young people are encouraged to join us for the entire overnight. However if they cannot spend the night, then they may come from 7-10pm. They must be picked up by a parent/guardian at 10pm and this must be noted on their Boxtopia Perm Form 22.

1.  Young people are to remain in the parking lot or school building throughout Boxtopia.
2.  If leaving at 10pm this must be noted on their Permission Form. Young people must be picked up by a parent/guardian.
3.  NO electronic devices of any kind. This includes cell phones and I-pods.

(If a cell phone is brought it will be collected by a designated adult chaperone and placed in a sandwich bag with the young person’s name on it. The young person may ask the designated adult chaperone to use it to contact parent/guardian if needed.)
