           To comple registration, a $300 non-refundable deposit per child, per week, is due at the end of the registration process. 

 

What does, "holdover" mean?

          When a child is signed up for more than one week of camp, there is a holdover fee of $54 to account for the extra day that is spent at Camp Saint Paul.  This day is filled with fellowship with other campers, games, waterfront time, lunch and dinner and a nights lodging at camp.  When registering your child, click, "holdover for (appropriate week)". Note: this is not a way of reserving a spot if the week is sold out.

           If the week of camp you desire to attend is sold out, you can contact the District Youth Office by phone (212-774-0574) or email (districtyouth@goarch.org) and be put on a waiting list.  The wait list is first come first serve. Once a participant cancels, you will be contacted.

Does my child have to speak Greek to come to camp?

            No, your child does not have to speak Greek to come to Camp Saint Paul. All of our programs and activities are done in English. We do have a program called Greek Cultural Appreciation where we teach our campers about the traditions of our Hellenic heritage.

 

Is there laundry service?

            Unfortunately, Camp Saint Paul does not provide a laundry service. Campers planning on staying for more than one week should pack enough clothes to last them their whole stay. Parents can also visit on the holdover day and take the camper into town for a meal and laundry.

 

What’s a typical day like at Camp Saint Paul?

            A typical day at Camp Saint Paul is unlike any other; our campers begin and end their day with chapel, worshiping our Lord. They participate in four different programs, Orthodox Life, where we learn and explore different aspects of our faith, Liturgical Hour, where we learn about the beautiful services of our Church and how to participate in them, Diakonia, where we learn the importance of serving those around us by creating art projects and other crafts and donating them to those in need, and Greek Cultural Appreciation, where we learn about our Hellenic culture and heritage; campers will learn how to Greek dance, acquire interesting facts about Greek culture, and learn how to prepare popular Greek dishes. In the afternoon, our campers get to enjoy beautiful Bantam Lake; tubing, blobbing, jet skiing, swimming and sliding as well as other fun activities. Each evening, our campers participate in a unique and fun activity ranging from Camp Olympics to a campfire complete with s’mores. Our evenings always end in prayer and individual cabin devotionals where our campers explore some of the topics that were discussed in the day’s sessions.
