The Romanian Orthodox Metropolia of the Americas is opening registration for the annual “St. Filoteia” summer camp for children aged between 7-14, starting on July 8, 2017, for boys, and July 15, for girls.
The camp is hosted by the “Faith and Heritage Center” in Allegan, Michigan with the help of volunteers from Ss. Constantine and Helen Cathedral from Chicago.
The goal of the organizers is to familiarize the children with the Christian Orthodox faith and Romanian traditional culture, as well as with activities in the natural environment of the property. On the property there is already a big and beautiful church.
The schedule, among other things, includes participation in church services, Orthodox education for children, activities and games in nature, music classes, group discussion, sports, walks.
The two week camp is scheduled as follows:
- for boys between 8 - 15 July
- for girls between 15 - 22 July
Participation of parents in the camp is not possible due to organizational matters.
Each child should have the written recommendation (attached to the application or by email) of the local priest with whom the family has a spiritual relation.
The parents can meet the organizers and visit the location in the first and last day of camp.
To help cover the expenses of the camp one can make a suggested donation of up to $200/person.
The deadline for registration is June 15.
