Our Goal: To provide a safe camp setting for children and adults in an Orthodox Christian community of worship, witness, service, and fellowship centered on Jesus Christ.
Mission: Away from normal daily routines, to grow spiritually through faith, hope, and love inspired by the Holy Spirit that will carry over into family, parish, and community life.
We accomplish this mission by witnessing within our Orthodox Faith through the main aspects of camp. They are:
Worship: We corporately ascribe praise, glory, and thanksgiving to God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit during the morning Matins, evening prayer services, devotions, and the Sacrament of Confession. This is culminated by receiving Holy Communion in the Divine Liturgy.
Fellowship: We strive as brothers and sisters in Christ to bring our faith into sporting, recreational, and social activities. Discussion groups provide opportunities to share what we have learned and experienced in our daily walk with Christ.
Education: We learn the Word of God and the Teachings of the Church in daily Bible study and religion groups led by priests and staff. In addition, we learn how to share with one another our revealed experiences through the grace of the Holy Spirit.
Service: We minister to each other by loving and serving mankind, thereby living in the image of God. By devoting our time, talents, and money, we respectfully maintain the camp’s facilities, we contribute to Orthodox Missions and other causes, and we help our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ. Our organization has been serving the faithful for over a decade. Our mission is to spiritually uplift our community, and work towards a greater good. We are tireless in our efforts to feed the hungry and clothe the poor. We help those seeking spiritual healing and enlightenment find the path that will lead them to a higher power. Our faith based outreach serves people of all races, creeds, and religions. We do not discriminate. We merely support our fellow man, and serve as a guiding light.
Membership: Our membership is growing at a steady pace. With this growth, we have been able to accomplish more, and have a larger impact upon the Orthodox community. We welcome you with open arms. Please inquire today about how you can become a cherished part of our faith based family.
