It’s almost time to say goodbye to Session 3 of Fanari Camp. It’s hard to put into words the transformation we’ve all gone through in our short week together. Bonds were made, faith became stronger, friendships blossomed. We’re so thankful for all the memories and experiences we’ve had in our short week together!
After practicing all week in Theater, it was finally time to put our acting skills to work at our last evening activity of the week, “Skit Night”. Ari Cussick did an amazing job on Theater staff, coordinating all the campers skits this week. Such a fun night of entertainment and laughs for all to enjoy! We definitley have some future stars here at Fanari Camp.
It was an exciting week of spirit points for all our cabins, but congratulations goes to the campers and counselors of the Olympians, the 2016 Session 3 Fanari Camp Spirit Winners!!! Great job keeping the Holy Spirit within, all week long! Our three 11th graders, Anayia Veremis, Stephanie Conglis and Christos Tryfonopoulos were given a candle to take home, as it is their last year to attend Fanari Camp. We pray that all they learned and felt in our week together will always stay close to their hearts. May they always shine bright, like a beacon of light, a Fanari, as examples of Christ to those with whom they meet.
Ending our last Closing Day, we all enjoyed a slideshow of pictures from our week together. So fun seeing all the smiling faces and reliving the beautiful memories we made all week long! To wrap things up, Deacon Chris spoke about how at camp we learn what it means to be an Orthodox Christian and how when we leave camp, we must live an Orthodox Christian life. He also thanked our Core Staff for all their many hours of planning and dedication to our Fanari Camp program. And we thank Deacon Chris for leading us all to make Fanari the best camping program for the children of our Metropolis!
Goodnight, Fanari Camp…we’ll see you in the morning to celebrate Divine Liturgy as one family and say our final goodbyes.
