Faith

St. Timothy Camp is centered around the Orthodox Christian faith. Each day we will have a short Orthros to start our day and a short Vespers to complete our day.
The camp has daily Orthodox Life sessions led by the Upstate NY clergy and youth staff.

Activities

St. Timothy’s camp and Oswegatchie offers a wide range of activities. Some activities are low key like kayaking, archery, hiking, and arts & crafts. There are also more extreme activities like water tubing, knee boarding, the high ropes course, and mountain biking.

Each campsite has a fire pit, and there are campfires most nights. Once a week, all of the campers are mixed up and pitted against each other in the Olympic Games!

St. Timothy Camp is open to all Orthodox Christian Youth ages 8 to 18 (graduating high school seniors).
