The Saints Peter and Paul Camp mission is to provide Orthodox Christian instruction and activities in an environment that fosters the virtues of kindness, patience and love. Each year we have a different camp theme that focuses on some part of the spiritual life. Every day begins with prayer and then talks and activities. Every age group has time with the clergy to discuss the theme of the camp and anything else they want to talk about. There are Church related art and craft projects and times for singing spiritual songs. Clergy are present to give talks and to make themselves available during the craft projects and various other times to invite the campers to ask any questions they like on spiritual and pastoral matter. The counsellors are Church School teachers who are encouraged to initiate informal conversations with the children on the camp theme for that year and anything else about Church and the spiritual life. This mix of formal talks and chances to follow up with informal conversations helps to make a deeper impression on the campers.
The camp provides a place where children from all of our vibrant communities within the Metropolis can come together, learn and play together, bond and make lasting friendships within the faith.
