Hello again, Parents, Campers, & Camp Supporters,

We are excited to announce that camp is one step closer to getting off the ground this year!

Here's the deal:
The next and last requirement we need to meet for camp to be held this year is that at least 48 campers have to register by SUNDAY, JUNE 16Currently we have about 27. Donations to fund campers - or just to make sure that camp can go ahead this year - are also gladly accepted.

Here are some of the Workshops to look forward to this year:
Icon Mounting
Creature Discovery
Liturgical Baking
Story Telling
Book Binding
...and more!

Our teen component will likely look a little different than last year, but will be just as fun and enlightening!
Please keep praying for All Saints' Camp, and we will confirm whether it's a go this year by Monday June 17

The All Saints of North America Orthodox Youth Camp Board.

URGENT appeal for Camp volunteers

Note from Muryn re: the BC Deanery Camp:

When the camp cancellation letter went out, there were a number of responses including a plea to rally together and make it work this year. The board met with a number of priests and other individuals to come up with a plan. Father Justin, camp priest, laid out the requirements for camp to move forward:

1. We must have all staffing positions applied for and 

approved and with criminal record checks in progress 

by Sunday, June 9th. 

If we don't, camp will not proceed. 

Here's what we need:
- Cook and kitchen staff (4 people)
- Counselors (age 20+: 8-10 people)
- Junior counselors (age 17-19: 4-6 people)
- Lifeguard (1 person)
- Nurse/first aid (1 person)
- Workshop leaders (2-3 people)

2. We need
at least forty campers signed up for camp - or equivalent donations received for any less than that - 

by Sunday, June 16th or camp will not be able to go forward.

We know these deadlines are tight - and the number of people still needed is challenging - but with all the good-will and those who are already stepping forward, we think it is still possible to go ahead with camp and to run it safely and responsibly... if all the above requirements (deadlines and numbers) are met.

So, if any of you feel you can help fulfill Part 1, or know someone who can, please let us know ASAP!
