Ionian Village Registration Open for Summer 2007

Garrison, NY - Registration for Ionian Village 2007, the summer travel abroad camp program of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, is now open! In order to receive a $200.00 Early Bird Registration discount , please send your completed registration form, along with your deposit, by March 7, 2007. For over 30 years, Ionian Village has enabled teenagers and young adults to experience the history of their Orthodox Faith and Hellenic culture through its unique camping program and excursions through Greece.

Guided by carefully selected and trained staff, participants will visit churches and monasteries, learn about the lives of the saints, and venerate their relics in Zakynthos (St. Dionysios), Kefalonia (St. Gerasimos), and Aegina (St. Nektarios), Patras (St. Andrew and the cross upon which he was crucified), Mega Spileion, Kalavrita, and Agia Lavra. Additionally, campers will gain appreciation for Hellenic contributions to the world by visiting the ruins of Ancient Olympia, Ancient Delphi, Cape Sounion, and the Acropolis.

In addition to its great spiritual and cultural value, the Ionian Village camp site is located on the Ionian Sea and provides a fun and social environment where campers participate in athletic events, craft projects, swimming at the beach (supervised by certified lifeguards), and catechetical discussions.

In order to make Ionian Village accessible to more of our youth this year, both sessions will accommodate campers in grades 8-12 (those entering 8 th grade in the fall of 2007 through those graduating 12 th grade in the spring of 2007).

SESSION I: June 28 ? July 17, 2007

SESSION II: July 24 â?? August 12, 2007
