Our campers and counselors  in action!

Our St. Stephen’s Summer Camp has a rich tradition, dating back to the 1980’s and is grounded on the principles of living a true Orthodox lifestyle with twice daily liturgical services, opportunities for reflection, community living and meals, athletics, arts & Crafts, and nightly social activities.

Recognized as the highlight of the summer, St Stephen’s Camp offers teens entering 6th through 12th grades when school begins in the fall, an opportunity to spend a week at our Diakonia Retreat Center.  Campers are only allowed to attend camp for one week.

Metropolitan Alexios emphasizes  “We cannot expect youngsters to keep coming to the Church simply because we say so…More than what we say to young people, it matters how much time we spend to listen to what they have to say to us, about their challenges, their hardships”.
