It’s our last full day of Fanari and although we’ve made memories that will last a lifetime, it’s hard to say goodbye to our friends and what’s become our new home this past week.
We ended our week with the perfect day and most beautiful weather to have our picnic. Sunshine and blue skies filled our day! After morning chapel and breakfast, we rotated between sessions of making Prosfora for Divine Liturgy, taking a Proskinitaria walk in the woods and playing out on the soccer field.
Once our picnic commenced, we all enjoyed souvlaki and karpouzi while listening to greek music. Some campers worked on their skits, others played volleyball and soccer, while chilling out in the Main Lodge and relaxing was popular, too.
After dinner our campers were ready to perform at Skit night, after spending all week working on their skits in Theater. Big shout out to Chris Chakonas for putting it all together! The night was filled with laughter and talent and ended with our 11th graders singing together and passing on their candles to three 10th graders.
Following Skit Night, all the campers gathered at the campfire to share their thoughts and feelings on how the Fanari experience had effected their lives and their relationships with one another. Sara Pessimisis, our girls director, started it off with wonderful words about keeping the Fanari flame, that is grown and fostered at camp, alive and for them to become beacons of light to all those they come in contact with. Many campers shared beautiful and thoughtful words about their experiences at Fanari and the night ended with the singing of the liturgical hymn “Lord of the Powers.”
Good Night from Fanari Camp. See you tomorrow for our final goodbyes.
