Thursday 6/19: Divine Liturgy

Thursday morning is always a special time at Fanari Camp, as we celebrate the Divine Liturgy together. It’s beautiful to hear the campers sing hymns together and to witness so many priests from our Metropolis serving together. Campers listened to a wonderful sermon about Fanari and our friendship in Christ from Fr. Bill Chiganos. Campers received the Sacrament of Holy Communion and we had campers participate in the Liturgy as altar boys and chanters. We are truly blessed to be a part of this amazing experience.

Following Divine Liturgy, we had a late breakfast and took some parish group photos. Now it’s time for the lakefront and an afternoon of free time! We’re looking forward to a tasty lunch of souvlaki, karpoozi and lemonade, and if the weather holds out our 4th Annual Fanari Water Games (canoe races).

After Liturgy, we ate breakfast and took some parish photos. Now we’re enjoying some beautiful, sunny weather down by the water and waiting for our lunch of souvlaki, karpoozi and lemonade. This afternoon we have our 2nd annual Water Games, which consist of canoe races between grades. We’re all excited for a day of relaxation and fun!

Fanari Loves the 80s!

The morning started out with all of us celebrating the Divine Liturgy and enjoying a late breakfast. Unfortunately a light rain hung around most of the day, but the campers watched movies, played in the gym, and had some sing-a-longs. Our traditional cookout was served inside, and our water games were postponed until tomorrow.

After lunch, Metropolitan Iakovos spoke to the campers and presented them each with an olive wood cross.

Tonight we had our 80s themed dance and had an indoor “campfire” with stories from Mr. D. The campers dressed in their 80s finest, and enjoyed an evening of 80s, Greek and current music. The campers listening to Mr. D enjoyed some s’mores and some of his famous stories.

We finished the night in chapel and are thankful for another wonderful day at Fanari- it’s hard to believe tomorrow is our last full day!

Hey, you guys are good!

All of your prayers for good weather for us up here really helped!  A few showers here, but it didn’t stop us!  Wednesday was a great day as the campers went through their usual activities.  Most of the campers received the sacrament of confession in preparation of celebrating the Divine Liturgy today.

Last night featured “Let’s Make A Deal” with all of the campers and staff participating in a variety of games for the chance to win great prizes such as 1st in line for meals, free golf cart rides, and lots of candy!

This morning we celebrated the Divine Liturgy and enjoyed a late breakfast. The campers are now enjoying a day of free time and we’ll be having hot dogs and watermelon for lunch. The rain is holding out for now, and we’re hopeful for a little sun tomorrow.
