New to Family Camp?
Screens, Technology, and the Passions
Orthodox Christian Insights for Families
The pervasiveness of “screens” in our workplaces, schools, and homes presents new challenges for Christian families. While some these technologies’ effects are positive and promising, others present serious dangers to our physical, emotional, and spiritual health. Taking a holistic approach, and drawing extensively from the sources of Orthodox tradition as well as insights from medicine, psychology, and sociology, we will identify specific challenges families face, examine some of the less obvious effects of screens and technology upon our interior lives and faith, and discuss constructive steps we can take to remain connected to God, our family, and our neighbor in a “screened” society.

Here is the step-by-step process to help you register:
1) Create Account
If you haven’t created a login yet, you will need to do so. To do so, visit the Login link in the menu, enter your email address, first and last name and click Register. You’ll only need to do this once. If you already have a login, skip to Step 3, Registering your child.
3) Register Children
When your Family Profile is complete, and if registration is open for camp, you’ll see a Register link next to your Children (Go to Accont Family Profile). Click the Register link, and complete the form.
2) Complete Family Profile
You’ll need to complete your Family Profile. To do so, Login to the site, visit the Account > Family Profile link in the menu, and add at least one Child, Parent/Guardian and Emergency Contact.
4) Pay For Camp
Once you have one or more registrations, you can click on the Proceed to Checkout. Provide your billing details, select a payment method, and checkout. That’s it. You’re done.
The menu at the top of the page gives you access to information about our camp programs, Summer Camp (and related content), Family Camp (and related content) as well as Login and Account information (if you’re logged in.)
In addition, we offer search functionality to allow you to look for specific content on the site.
All of the information you need to provide for camp registration will be managed on the Family Profile page (available from the Account menu when you’re logged in.). The Family Profile allows you to add people to your profile (children, parents and/or guardians, and emergency contacts.)
In order to complete a Family Profile, you must have at least one child, one parent (yourself), and one non-parent emergency contact. Until you provide this information, you will not be able to register a child for camp.
When you create an Account, you’ll provide very little information. When you execute a transaction (pay for camp) you’ll provide additional information in order to complete the transaction. That information will be stored, but your credit card information will not.
