Josie Vosters: Spirit of Kateri Award Recipient at Camp Tekakwitha

We’re proud to announce that Josie Vosters was recently a camper at Camp Tekakwitha, and at the end of their session, she was a recipient of the Spirit of Kateri Award!

Each week, Camp Tekakwitha staff awards the Spirit of Kateri Award to two exceptional campers in recognition of their leadership, love of Christ, and dedication to serving their cabinmates and friends at Camp Tekakwitha. Josie was one of the two campers awarded in her session, nominated by her counselors and selected by the staff!

As a young person, Saint Kateri Tekakwitha displayed a deep love for Jesus amidst numerous obstacles, and was a witness to Christ and a friend to many. St. Kateri Tekakwitha’s intercession guides the staff and campers of Camp Tekakwitha as they strive to imitate her witness of love, selflessness, and friendship. Josie was a definite leader in her cabin, and certainly emulated the “spirit” of our great patroness St. Kateri in acts of kindness and love.

Winners of the Spirit of Kateri Award are honored among the campers and parents, and receive a shirt with St. Kateri’s famous words, “I am not my own, I have given myself entirely to Jesus.” We’re so proud of Josie!

Josie graduated from  St. John Nepomucene Catholic School and will be a sophomore at Career Pathways at Little Chute High School.
