It's time to refuel your tank by joining us for a weekend of services, education in the faith, fellowship and tons of fun and friendships at Winter Camp, February 14-17, 2014. This year Chris Shadid will be our Keynote Speaker. You may register online by clicking on one of the links (Returning Camper or New Camper) or by visiting our forms page. For more information visit our Winter Camp webpage.
In August of 2010, through the generosity of a three year grant provided by Dr. Donald and Marti Howard, we hired David Jacobs as our Program Director and Tatiana Jacobs to serve as Education Director. Now that the three-year grant has come to an end, we offer our thanks and appreciation to Dn. David and Tatiana Jacobs for their ministry at the Antiochian Village Camp. They have made numerous contributions to our life at the Village. We wish them well and all of God’s blessings as they move on from the Village.
We welcome to our staff Christopher Shadid, who will now be a full-time staff member at the Antiochian Village. Chris was a camper at the Antiochian Village for nine years, served as a Counselor for three years, and was our Male Head Counselor for three years as well. He graduated from Holy Cross Theological Seminary this past May and as a member of the Antiochian Archdiocese Department of Camping visited our camping programs this past summer. Chris also served for many years in Teen SOYO at all levels. Chris will be our speaker for Winter Camp, February 14-17, 2014. Registration for Winter Camp will open in November.
