Peru: CANAPIU - National Camp for the Schoenstatt Boys' Youth
Canapiu is the acronym for Camapmento Nacional de Pioneros y Universitarios, National Camp of pioneers (high school boys) and university students, and it is a dream come true for the Peruvian Schoenstatt Boys' Youth. It is a challenge to excel, pick up the heritage of the first Peruvian Schoenstatt Boys, and draw many other boys who do not yet know Schoenstatt to this camp (the second ever held in Peru) and thus to the Shrine and the Covenant of Love. The boys from Peru entrusted the camp to the Mother Thrice Admirable, whom they love to call the "Queen of the first pilgrimage of the Peruvian Boys' Youth to the first Peruvian Shrine" - the one in Trujillo, dedicated on December 8, 2001.
