The Summer Camp Experience

Every summer, hundreds of children and teenagers from throughout the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of San Francisco gather for our summer camp program. The Orthodox Christian Faith comes alive for young people as they develop lifelong friendships and memories. Every session three to five clergy from the Metropolis are in attendance teaching, inspiring and leading our youth in worship. The theme for Summer Camp 2017 is “BE STILL”. Summer camp activities include: 

  • arts and crafts
  • swimming
  • canoeing
  • campfires
  • archery
  • nature hikes
  • Olympics
  • skit nights
  • daily worship services
