Sorry for the delay – we had difficulty with wifi…
Every year Fanari seems to fly by, and this year was no different. The campers arrive on Sunday afternoon and the next thing you know, it’s Saturday morning and our campers are heading home. Fanari 2013 is complete and the buses are on their way home.
We were blessed with another wonderful year of Fanari and we’re so thankful for such an amazing experience. Campers, we hope you made new friends, had fun, and most importantly, learned more about your faith. We pray that you carry your Fanari agape with you throughout your lives, and that you cherish the friendships and memories you’ve made.
Counselors, staff, and clergy thank you for all of your hard work this week. Fanari couldn’t happen without you! Your dedication to the youth of our Metropolis is so important to our ministry and we’re so grateful for the time you’ve given to our Fanari campers.
Thanks everyone for a great week! We’ll see you next year for Fanari 2014!!!

Well, our 40th year of Fanari Camp is done! The campers are all on the buses and just pulled out of camp.
Thank you to our counselors, staff and priests for all of your hard work and energy this week. Fanari couldn’t happen without you!
Campers, we hope you had a wonderful week, made new friends and learned about our faith. We pray that the experiences you had at Fanari will be with you throughout your lives.
We’ll see everyone on June 17 for Fanari 2012!!!
Today we have some guest bloggers, two 11th grade girls from Holy Apostles: Kristina Clark & Lia Kass. Thank you Kristina and Lia for sharing your Fanari experience with us!
Coming to Fanari for the past 6 years changed our lives in a way we didn’t think possible. It is a place that taught us more about ourselves and our faith. Leaving behind the memories we have made is one of the hardest things we have ever had to do, and Fanari will always hold a special place in our hearts. Friendships made here at camp are impossible to find anywhere else, and it is a blessing to have had the opportunity to have something like Fanari.
This camp not only brought us closer together with God, but has helped us to become stronger Orthodox Christians for the rest of our lives. While maturing in our faith, Fanari has been something we looked forward to every single year.
We will miss you Fanari!
Kristina & Lia
