REEDSBURG -- It's a time of newness at Camp Gray, the Catholic summer camp and year-round retreat center of the Diocese of Madison.

This year's staff members are hard at work serving the first of hundreds of summer campers seeking to grow in faith and fun.

There are also some new looks to the 225 acres located in Sauk County.

The most noticeable is the new dining hall facility serving as a strong and friendly greeting to all those who visit the grounds.
