Session 2 of Fanari Camp has begun and we are so excited to be back at camp and start another blessed week together!
After the arrival of all our campers, we enjoyed dinner together and then began our orientation. Deacon Chris, talked about our rules and what to expect this week at camp. Spirt coins and spirit points are up for grabs! Everyone learned how to earn them by showing they have the Holy Spirit within their hearts. We met all our amazing and spirited counselors and learned what Super Hero is their favorite!
We also went through a rotation of each of our activities: Orthodox Life, Bible Study, Theater, and Flex where we will rotate with Greek Culture, Chanting, Arts & Crafts and Athletics each day. Afterwards, we enjoyed an ice cream social, listening to music, and loudly showed off our Fanari Spirit with our counselors and new cabin mates. What a fun 1st night at Fanari Camp!
As our night came to an end, we gathered in the Main Lodge for our chapel service, lead by Fr. Tilemahos Alikakos from St. Spyridon in Palos Heights. Campers went back to their cabins to do their first devotionals with their counselors and got settled in for the night.
What a wonderful beginning for our Session 2 campers and staff! We are excited as to what the week will bring us all! Goodnight from Fanari Camp Headquarters….see you tomorrow!
