Taste of Salesian Life - 2002
I had the privilege to spend five weeks with the Salesian Sisters and work at their summer youth camp. It has been a wonderful experience to work with the children. It was also a joyful experience to get to know the Sisters through prayer, chores, and community sharing. I learned a lot about myself and I hope to continue to grow with this order.

This summer at Mary Help has been a blast! I met many amazing and inspiring people to help me on my spiritual journey. I really enjoyed sharing the mission of the Salesian Sisters by working with the kids at camp. This has been a summer that I will never forget.

"This is my second summer taking part of "The Taste of Salesian Life". Last summer was amazing and I couldn't wait to come back. It was thrilling to be with them. These Sisters play basketball and run around with the kids. They are full of JOY!!! . What has been even more inspiring for me is their love for Jesus in whatever they do. Praying with the Sisters, working with them and living with them has been awesome. I'll be back, for sure! It was really cool to be the other young women who are thinking of imilar questions that I'm thinking about. I have grown in my faith and am excited to know this is just the beginning!"

"Living in the Mary Help community has been enlightening and delightful experience. My days have been enriched with thought-provoking prayers, lively conversations, and fun filled activities. The Sisters have inspired me to deepen my own relationship with God and others through their selfless acts of love, courage, and faith. I consider myself spiritually blessed by this experience."

"I met the Salesian Sisters for the first time in Tampa, Florida. I wanted to experience more of the Salesian way of life, so I decided to come to Mary Help of Christians camp for the TSL. This is my first year and what a great experience it has been! I love working with the children and the Sisters. I hope to come back for some more fun memories."

"My summer experience at Mary Help Camp has been truly wonderful. The same spirit of joy that I fell in love with fifteen years ago at Christ the King School in Tampa, Florida, is alive at Mary Help. It was no surprise to me that the Sisters would open not only their house, but also their hearts to us. Living with the Sisters in such a large and diverse community was beautiful. They allowed us to share in their prayers, work and recreation. As a lifeguard I got to see and interact with all the children everyday. I could not have had a better job."
