Dear Campers and Parents of the Metropolis of Boston Camp,
Χριστός Ανέστη! Christ is Risen!
I hope and pray that you and your families are safe and healthy during these uncertain times. Please know that the clergy and staff of our Metropolis of Boston Camp have been praying for your continued health and well-being.
As His Eminence Metropolitan Methodios stated in his announcement, due to the current pandemic our Metropolis of Boston Camp program will take on a new and transformed experience this summer. What was planned to be a normal summer, full of laughter and games, s’mores and stargazing, Orthodox Life Sessions, campfires, life changing discussions, encounters with Christ, enriching conversations, and meaningful friendships—a time of tipped canoes, second chances, and life lessons—will now be transformed into an exciting new adventure of our first-ever MBC Virtual Camp experience!
We are very excited to announce Separate…But United our virtual camp experience for this summer! This camp program will allow us to keep our camp culture alive and still participate in the things which make camp camp. Our amazing staff is working very hard to develop creative ways for us to stay connected using the technological means available to us.
We pray that the crippling effects of this virus will subside during the summer months. However, given how quickly the situation changes there are many variables. That is why we have assembled a team to closely monitor the situation and explore the possibility of the Metropolis of Boston Camp hosting small group, age-specific, retreats in addition to our virtual camp experience.
Please see the attached flyer for MBC’s Separate…But United! Registration will open on Thursday, May 21st, 2020 at Noon. I pray that the Risen Lord will bless our interactions, as they take on a new form for this summer.
Praying that our Lord abundantly blesses you and your families, I remain,
With love in the Risen Lord,
+Archdeacon Dionysios Papiris, Director
