Camp 2022 Begins!
And, we’re back! We are so happy to be back at camp! Glory to God that we can all be back together in person. Counselors arrived yesterday and are ready to have an amazing week with our campers. The pool is glistening, the boats are docked on the lake, and the field is full of sports ready to be enjoyed by all. Campers arrived today and the big smiles on their faces already tell us they are having a great time.
After registration, we enjoyed our first meal together over a BBQ in the pavilion. Following dinner, we had camper orientation where campers learned about camp facilities, rules, and safety tips for the week. We were blessed to welcome our diocesan hierarch, Archbishop Mark, the abbot of St. Tikhon’s Monastery, Archimandrite Sergius, and the dean of St. Tikhon’s Seminary, Fr. John Parker. All three entities have worked hard together to make this a wonderful week for our campers. Once orientation was finished, campers enjoyed break-out sessions with their age groups where they got to know each other and play games.
Everyone is settling in and becoming acquainted with their new home for the week while starting wonderful friendships. We are excited for our first full day tomorrow especially with some fun holiday celebrations planned.
