Dear Camp St. George Families,
I am sorry to have to make this announcement, but due to not having enough staff, we are canceling camp this year. The Camp St. George website and our Facebook and Instagram pages will be updated today with the same announcement.
Finding qualified young people to serve as camp counselors is always a challenge, and this year was especially difficult. Having dedicated staff of young people who are firm in the faith is critical to the Orthodox camping experience. Without them, we simply cannot have camp. Within the next couple weeks you will be refunded any money that you paid directly to Camp St. George. If you are able to donate back the initial registration fee ($75), send us a note -email@example.com – and we will use your donation for future Camp St. George programming.
Our goal is for Camp St. George to return next year with enough staff to provide your children with the best possible Orthodox camp experience. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Wishing you a blessed Feast of Pentecost,
+Very Rev. Fr. Fred Shaheen, Camp Director
Why are we here?
The mission of Camp St. George is to present to young people a living experience of the Holy Orthodox Faith, in their relationship with God and other campers in an uncluttered, natural environment.
