We were blessed to have 115 campers and 38 staff participate in our seventh summer camp session in British Columbia since 2010.
Camp was held from Saturday, August 27th to Friday, September 2nd, 2016, and once again took place at Pioneer Pacific Christian Camp on Thetis Island (between Metro Vancouver and Vancouver Island). The theme this year was the Ten Commandments (Exodus 20:1-16) which was presented as a Star Wars theme, asking “Who is your Father?” If we believe that God is our Father, then we must honour and respect His Commandments. This built on and continued last year’s theme of Creation, teaching us to offer Creation back to God, and that the pinnacle of creation and best offering is in fact ourselves.
In addition to our selfless volunteers, led by our Administrative Director Ms. Elleni Asimakis, Programs Director Ms. Aphrodite Koseos, and Staff Director Mr. Yanni Alexandropoulos, Fr. Evangleos Aravantinos (Ypapanti, Victoria), Fr. Kosta Kaltsidis (Sts. Constantine and Helen, Surrey), Fr. Timoleon Prattas (Sts. Nicholas and Demetrios, East Vancouver) and Camp MET BC Spiritual Director Fr. Constantinos Economos (St. George, Vancouver), were the participating clergy.
Registration for Camp MET BC Winter Camp will open shortly. For more information visit our website.
