Summer Camp Scholarships
There are scholarship opportunities to assist our young Orthodox Christians to participate in the St. Demetrios Summer Camp as well as the St. Stephens Summer Camp in North Carolina.
The Philoptochos will sponsor 2 children at the St. Demetrios Summer Camp. Additionally, we are very pleased to announce that a scholarship fund from the Mary Kandaras estate has been established to fund 2 additional children at the St. Demetrios Summer Camp as well as one child at the St. Stephens camp in North Carolina.
Attendance at these camps is not only fun and educational but provides our young Orthodox Christians with an environment to develop their spiritual growth. Details regarding the criteria for the scholarships and applications are available on the St. Demetrios website or at the Church office.
