St. Tikhon's Summer Camp Continues Tradition of Excellence
St. Tikhon's Summer Camp Continues Tradition of Excellence
During the week of July 1, 2012, 120 children, as well as a volunteer staff of 54 adult counselors, gathered on the grounds of St. Tikhon’s Seminary to celebrate another successful season of the Summer Camp program that has been a tradition for more than 40 years.

Saint Tikhon’s Summer Camp allows Orthodox Christian children between the ages of 7 and 17 to grow in their relationship with Christ and to develop relationships with each other by attending daily services, enjoying religious education programs geared toward their individual age groups, and spending time together during recreational activities on the beautiful grounds. Although the program is sponsored by the Diocese of Eastern Pennsylvania, the camp also hosts children from many other states including New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Florida, and Nebraska.

A very special and historical highlight of this season of camp was a July 4 visit from Fr. Athanasy and the miraculous myrrh-streaming icon of St. Anna. Each of the campers and staff members had the opportunity to venerate this beautiful icon at the conclusion of that evening’s prayer service.
