After much prayer, deliberation and discussion, your Summer Camp Task Force made the very difficult decision to cancel the St. Mary’s Summer Camp program for 2020.
This was an incredibly heart wrenching decision. Summer Camp has always been and will continue to be a wonderful soul enriching experience and a very important ministry to our Pan Orthodox community. But during this immensely challenging time, the health and safety of our Campers and Staff was the top priority.
We plan to announce some virtual Summer Camp opportunities for 2020: including our Camp Slide Show, Evening Devotionals and some Campfire Songs to name a few. Please stay tuned for our upcoming announcements regarding dynamic and engaging opportunities for our youth.
The Mission Statement for St. Mary’s Summer Camp is:
“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.”
Our hope and PRAYER are that each of us can faithfully carry on the Mission Statement until we are all back together again.
We have always appreciated your support and prayers for the Campers and Staff in the past. And we humbly request your continued love, support and prayers for the Camp Program, Campers and Staff during these challenging times for all of us.
With Love in the Risen Christ,
The St. Mary’s Summer Camp Task Force
