ORPR Russian Orthodox Youth Camp Held its 56th Season this Summer


ORPR Russian Orthodox Youth Camp, under the auspices of The Diocese of Chicago and Mid-America of The Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia, held its 56th season this year, beginning on Saturday, July 2nd. Almost 80 youngsters from around the diocese participated this year. The ORPR camp is located in a rural section of northern Illinois and provides Orthodox youth with a month of instruction in the Orthodox religion, Russian history and culture, and scouting skills.

The summer session ran the entire month of July and also included activities such as swimming, hiking, scavenger hunts, campfires, sports and arts & crafts. Every year campers make new friendships, improve their leadership abilities and deepen their Orthodox Christian faith.
