2016 Adult Resort Camp at Saint Nicholas Ranch

2016 Adult Resort Camp at Saint Nicholas Ranch


Have you aged out of summer camp? Maybe you are too old to be a camper. Or perhaps you hit that age where you need more than 4 hours of sleep and a single mattress to sleep on, so you can’t be a counselor. We may have found a solution!

For a few years now, the Metropolis of San Francisco has offered an Adult Resort Camp under the direction of Fr. Jim Pappas in Fresno.


Basically, it is a week similar to summer camp but for Senior Citizens. About 75-80 participants over the age of 55 attend and they have a lot of fun!

adult resort2WHEN : Sep 12 – 16, 2016 (Monday – Friday)

WHERE: Saint Nicholas Ranch and Retreat Center in Dunlap, California, 38526 Dunlap Rd, Dunlap, CA 93621, 559-338-2103 stnicholasranch.org

Participants can stay in the lodge which houses 28 rooms featuring 2 beds and private bath in each or in the dorms. The lodge fills quickly and is first-come-first-serve.

WhaadultResortt can they expect? It’s like summer camp without the curfew. Adult Resort Camp has something for everyone, along with plenty of rest and relaxation. The excursions around the camp are coupled with insightful talks, arts and crafts, cooking sessions, poolside serenades, and a talent show. And this year’s Hawaiian theme is sure to inspire some fun. They also participate in worship services at the Ranch and visit the adjacent Monastery of the Theotokos the Life-Giving Spring  for a discussion with Yerondissa (the abbess.)

You can fly into Fresno or drive up to the camp, but you definitely have to register.
