About Our Camp
Please visit the St Andrew's Camp Blog and FaceBook for the latest photos, news, and updates
Saint Andrew's Camp was founded in 1954 by a small group of Orthodox Christians who felt it necessary to have Pan Orthodox educational centers for youth. Since its first session in 1957, Saint Andrew's Camp has served thousands of campers
We continually strive to be of service to Orthodox Christians of all jurisdictions, and are grateful to be a valuable youth ministry resource for the Orthodox Church in America ( OCA ) Diocese of New York & New Jersey.
Our spacious campground features 30 acres of open recreational fields, wooded areas, and a beautiful (and swimmable) private lakefront.
Our summer camping program includes arts & crafts, swimming, sports, religious discussion, liturgical life, and many electives that vary from year to year, such as music, poetry, environmental studies, and horseback riding.
The summer program is designed to provide children and teens with a camping experience in an Orthodox Christian community, temporarily away from the modern distractions that often make us forget the simple things.
The camp is owned & operated by The Orthodox Charitable and Educational Foundation (OCEF), a non-profit organization incorporated in New York. The facilities can also be used for retreats and other special events, and are available off season.
With us everything should be secondary compared to our concern with children, and their upbringing in the instruction and teaching of the Lord"
- Saint John Chrysostom
