Camping Ministry

The Antiochian Archdiocese is blessed with ten camping programs ministering to young people in different geographic areas throughout the Archdiocese. Each camp is unique in its characteristics and facility, yet all are following the same mission of transforming lives and nurturing faith in Jesus Christ through Orthodox Christian community living, worship, education, fellowship, and love.

While each camp has its own mostly volunteer staff which plans and executes its program, the Department of Camping oversees each program to ensure that the highest safety guidelines are followed, a consistent program is presented at all of our camps, accreditation is maintained, and oversees the distribution of the Order of St. Ignatius Scholarships to each camp.​

The following list is of all the current camping programs in the Antiochian Archdiocese. For more information, please follow the link to the individual camp’s web site.
