Tomahawk Challenge Overnight
May 7-8

For boys in 8th grade

Just as boys in the Sateré-Mawé tribe undergo a test of their virtue and strength before they are entrusted with the protection of their tribe, so too are all Tomahawk graduates challenged to overcome themselves, their fears, and their desire for comfort at The Tomahawk Overnight before moving on to high school.  The Tomahawk Overnight will challenge each participant to grow in generosity, fortitude, and temperance – essential virtues for any man, especially a serious high school student.  The overnight will include camping out in Kettle Moraine State Park, a paintball competition, a time of prayer, Holy Mass, and a cookout at Sauganash.

As with all activities for grown men, there is an expectation of no complaining at The Tomahawk Overnight, even in the face of unforeseen difficulties, inclement weather, unfavorite food, and painful paintball defeat.  Those unprepared to live up to this expectation are discouraged from participating.

Do you accept the challenge?
