The Greek Village Immersion Camp is a successful and growing ministry of the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of San Francisco. Now in its fourth year, the Greek Village Immersion Camp, “To Elliniko Horio”, will be held June 22 – 29, 2013 at Saint Nicholas Ranch and Retreat Center in Dunlap, CA, for children ages 7 through 14.   

The Greek Village Camp offers a creative and educational immersion program which brings children closer to their ancestral heritage through instruction in language, customs, traditions and the Orthodox faith. With the guidance of skilled instructors, campers will participate in classes including: language, cooking, geography, mythology, music, dance, theatre and more. The children will attend worship services daily and also have an opportunity to observe the monastic life at the Monastery of the Theotokos the Life Giving Spring which is adjacent to Saint Nicholas Ranch. Arts and crafts, swimming, basketball, volleyball and canoeing are also just a few of the many extracurricular activities included in the campers’ daily schedule, plus evening campfires, storytelling, folk dancing and singing.

The 230-acre Saint Nicholas Ranch is nestled in the foothills of the Sequoia National Park.  Its hiking trails, apple orchards, historic barn and lake provide the aura of a traditional Greek Village to further enhance a truly cultural experience. 

The Greek Village Camp is now offering a convenient and secure way to enroll your child with online registration. Visit to sign up today! Special discounts are available for families sending more than one child. Enrollment is limited so reserve your space today!
