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.
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 our mission by witnessing our Orthodox Faith through Worship, Fellowship, Education and Service.
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.
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.
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.
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.
