We did it! After two summers of not being able to hold our Metropolis Summer Camp in-person, we brought Summer Camp BACK after (and still during) a world-wide pandemic. It took a lot of work to create a unique plan for this summer, hire the staff, and get the property ready, but Glory to God, our team worked together to make it happen!

With our limited capacity this summer, the Metropolis was able to welcome 230 campers, 60 staff members, 13 clergy, and many volunteers from across the Metropolis and Archdiocese for three weeks of camp and a week of staff orientation to engage in fellowship, prayer, fun, meaningful conversations, and time reflecting on the summer's theme, “Glory to God for All Things”.

Some of the fun activities we had at camp this summer were gold panning, archery, candle making, hayrides, arts and crafts, aquatics, Orthodox Life, faith and culture, campfires, a fun night of the “Dunlap County Fair” with square dancing, carnival games, snow cones, and face painting, and a final night of camp with a dance at the pool with the theme of “St. Nick’s, Your Home for the Holidays”, where everyone dressed up in their favorite holiday-themed attire. It was another wonderful summer at Saint Nicholas Ranch, and we look forward to making plans for summer 2023! Glory to God for All Things!
