LIFE AT CAMP
Welcome to Camp St Mary of Egypt!
We are an Orthodox Youth camp sponsored by the parishes of the Pacific NW Deanery of the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America.
Our goal is to provide young people with a living experience of the Holy Orthodox Faith through the practice of being in community together, providing opportunities to learn ways in which to deepen their faith, and spending time in fellowship with clergy, staff, and other campers in a peaceful and fun camp setting!
Our campers are given the special opportunity to spend time with both priests and faithful staff-in-residence while also spending time in fellowship with each other through engaging in fun activities like canoeing, swimming, hiking, campfires, and much more!
One week at Camp St. Mary of Egypt has the potential to transform a young person’s life both in the short term and in the long term. Leadership has seen this countless times over the nearly 20 years since CSME was founded. We come together as campers and staff to deepen our faith through guidance from clergy that leads us to a greater understanding of what it means to be an Orthodox Christian and through the experience of being in community with each other as we share a memorable week together at camp!
