St. Xenia Camp 2013

St. Xenia Camp had another successful camp week this year! The camp, in its 16th year, was held from August 18 to August 24 in the picturesque Fryeburg, Maine location. With almost 60 campers enrolled this year, camp activities included canoeing, swimming, enjoyable arts and crafts, various exciting indoor and outdoor games, a fun talent show, church services, and edifying clergy talks.

Bishop Demetrius was present most of the camp week and Father George Kamberidis presided as Camp Chaplain. The camp had several clergy visitors during the week that came from Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and New York.

It was an incredible and memorable week of community, teamwork, fun, fellowship and spiritual enrichment! Plans are underway to create an even more fulfilling and enjoyable camp experience for 2014, God willing!
