About

Our Camp mission is to provide an environment that fosters Orthodox Christian virtues of kindness, patience and love.

The camp will provide a place where children from all of our vibrant communities within the Metropolis can come together, play together, bond and make lasting friendships within the faith.

Thanks to God, we have a perfect setting and resources to provide a camp on the grounds of St Joseph of Arimathea Church, located in the historic, beautiful Hamlet of Whitevale, Ontario in north Pickering. In this rural setting, the children will learn about nature through the study of trees, ponds, creeks and more. They will hike the famous Duffins Creek (the Seaton Trail); learn the history of the Village through interactive walks; take on crafts such as woodcarving and so much more. We are very blessed that, nestled in this quiet natural setting, we have a church where the children will gather for prayer and instruction. Should it rain, the camp will move indoors! There will be no rainouts!
