2015 Orthodox Christian Camp and Youth Worker Conference

This conference has a long history in several different forms.  The purpose as it exists today is to bring all Orthodox Christians doing youth ministry at any level and in any form together for several days to further our education, foster brotherhood and provide fellowship.  We will have keynote addresses from Fr Bogdan Bucur, Professor at Duquesne University, and Dr. Stefanie Yazge, Professor of Theology at St. Vincent College, a series of workshops focusing on Youth Ministry as it relates to Youth Workers and Camp Staff, daily services and fellowship so that we might get to know each other better.  Each year a different jurisdiction of the Orthodox Churches in the United States serves as host on behalf of all of us with the input and direction provided by the Orthodox Christian Camp Association and national Church Youth Department directors.
