Live Auction Experiences

Experience #1

A Thrilling Day at Camp Gray with Fr. Michael Wanta

Get ready for a one-of-a-kind day of fun for your group of up to 16 people!

You’ll be joined by St. Ambrose alumnus and former Camp staffer Fr. Michael Wanta who will offer the Holy Mass for your group and join in the fun for the day.

Climb on the climbing wall, walk the trails, and enjoy an exhilarating pond party down by the raging waters of Lake Jake! Brats, paddleboarding and maybe even going off the rope swing too! Wind down in the evening with a bonfire as you marvel at the beauty of the created world.

The world is your oyster as you experience the beautiful grounds and make the most of a day away from it all at Camp Gray.

The winning bidder will coordinate with Camp Gray to set a weekend date in 2023 (late spring, summer or fall).

This auction experience is generously sponsored by Camp Gray.
