Greetings St. Xenia Camp family,
As previously announced, through the intercessions of St. Xenia, the prayers of so many of you, and with the blessing of Metropolitan Demetrius, St. Xenia Camp 2021 will return to Forest Acres in Fryeburg, Maine August 15-21! Given the continued impact of COVID-19, camp this year may yet be somewhat different from the past Forest Acres experiences. We are sharing this information ahead of registration so that all families can make an informed decision on whether they feel comfortable sending their camper(s) this year.
Camper registration applications and volunteer applications will open on Saturday, April 10th, and will close Thursday, July 1st. Given potential restrictions, we may have to run camp at reduced capacity, so space is limited. All registration applications must be complete (including Health and Waiver of Liability forms for) to be considered, at which point campers will be considered by age group in the order their complete application was received. The camp medical director, Fr. Vassily Mihailoff, MD will be reviewing Health Forms as part of the acceptance process. Starting April 10th, please go to the St. Xenia Camp website to complete all registration application forms, or to fill out a volunteer application.
It is important for all prospective volunteers, and campers and their families to be aware of and understand the following health related items:
Please be aware that health and operational guidelines may change over the course of the summer- we are monitoring them closely, and will keep all accepted staff, campers, and their families apprised of any changes.

Jonesboro is a town located near the Eastern border of Arkansas, with a population of approximately 60,000. From a human standpoint, it’s not the most likely candidate for a traditional Orthodox mission, but for an Orthodox Christian who orders his priorities around Christ and His Church, it makes perfect sense.
