Camp Saint Sophrony is part of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Thyateira and Great Britain children and youth ministries. The aim of the camp is to bring children from across the archdiocese together for a fun-filled week of outdoor activity in an Orthodox Christian setting. Here they will grow in confidence and in the faith and meet lifelong friends.
From Orthodox teaching, to adventure activities, campers will meet new friends, have lots of fun, and learn about the Orthodox Christian Faith.
