Planning an Orthodox Summer Youth Camp
By Fr. Michael Anderson
Also see: Camp Planning Checklist
The Orthodox Church in America has one of the largest networks of Orthodox summer camping and rally programs in North America. They are some of the most successful and dynamic youth ministry efforts in our Church. Thousands of Orthodox (and non-Orthodox) children and youth throughout North America participate in these programs that are dedicated to building up relationships with each other, with hundreds of dedicated adult volunteers, and with Christ. Our summer camps and rallies offer children, youth, and adults an experience of what daily life in an Orthodox community can be like.
