What is Family camp?

Family camp is an Orthodox camp for the whole family. It is an opportunity to gather with other Orthodox Christians of the Northwest and pray, learn, play, and fellowship together. There are activities for everyone: for the kids of all ages, talks for the adults, and an opportunity to make new friends and renew old friendships for all: There are fun activities for children, teens, young adults, parents, and grandparents.

Where is family camp?

The Family camp is located near Eugene Oregon at a beautiful lakeside Kiwanis camp.

Why go to family camp?

The St. John the Wonderworker Family Camp offers the opportunity to retreat from the world and set aside time for prayer, fellowship, classes, and other ways of building the Faith for those who may not have the resources or time to travel to a monastery or other place of pilgrimage. World-class speakers and teachers and helpers experienced with working with children contribute to a full experience of the Church in a beautiful wilderness setting. Every day we gather together to pray Matins, Vespers, and Compline and we always have a mid-week Divine Liturgy. We also have a special children’s Vespers, where the kids get a hands-on opportunity to participate in a service.

Family camp is also a fun place for children of all ages.  Children, teens and adults will have age appropriate seminars, activities and crafts in an environment that will build their understanding of the Orthodox faith.
