Camps & Rallies

Camps & Rallies

Each summer approximately 2000 Orthodox children and youth from across North America participate in one of the Orthodox Church in America’s 30 or so camping programs. Staffed and run by committed volunteers from local parishes, these camps gather for programs ranging from 4 days, a week, two weeks, or even 7 weeks of friendship, Christian education, daily worship, and service to each other.

These programs give campers and staff the experience of living in an Orthodox Christian community 24 hours a day and provide opportunities for youth to take on leadership roles, serve others through a large variety of creative projects, and have even been the place of baptisms and chrismations of youth and adults who have ‘found the true faith.’
