Our Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA, under the Office of Youth & Young Adult Ministry, offer several different camping programs and ministries for youth and families in the summer. Camps are held at All Saints Camp located in Emlenton, PA (a two hour drive from Parma, OH).

Diocesan Church School Camp (DCSC)
DCSC is designed for children ages 9 to 12 and runs for two weeks. Children stay in cabins according to their age and are with a counselor at all times. The schedule includes: daily prayer services, church school lessons based on the theme, sports, crafts, singing, dancing, campfires, and many more themed evening activities.
Teenage Conference (TC)
TC is designed for youth ages 13 to 18 and runs for two weeks. The schedule includes: daily prayer services, “Living Orthodox” (a question and answer based lecture with a priest), “Ukie Olympics” (a team sports program), Ukrainian cultural activities, liturgical singing, guest speakers, designated free time, sports time, swimming time, campfires, game night, movie night, themed dances, and many more themed evening activities.
Mommy and Me/Daddy and Me (MMDM)
MMDM is designed for parents and children ages 4-8 to spend time together in an Orthodox Family environment. The children are introduced to camp life and the parents are given the opportunity to meet fellow Orthodox parents who are tackling the same challenges in today’s world. The schedule includes: daily prayer services, church school lessons, parent workshops and discussions, parent/child sports, crafts, singing, dancing, campfires, family hikes, hayrides, scavenger hunts, swimming, and talent shows.

Our parish has a scholarship fund for any youth wishing to attend any of the summer camping programs thanks to the Supronenko Fund established at our parish. Scholarships for participants will be awarded based on active participation of the applicant’s family in the life of the parish and support of the parish with the approval of the clergy and parish board. The amount of the scholarship is up to 50% of the cost. Consideration is given for special needs. The reimbursement is awarded upon completion of the camping program.
