Greek Village

Let your child experience the Greek Culture and Language in a fun, creative and engaging week-long camp environment at Saint Nicholas Ranch.

Children participate in daily activities that are led by trained professional instructors who offer a creative and stimulating learning environment which emphasizes the use of the Greek language during all facets of instruction.

Program highlights include classes in theatre, music, mythology, cooking, art, Greek language, and a daily pentathlon. Every evening includes singing Greek folk songs and Greek dancing around the campfire. A special highlight of the week is a visit to the Monastery of the Theotokos the Life Giving Spring which is adjacent to Saint Nicholas Ranch. The children assist in the garden, collect eggs from the hen house, and learn to milk the goats.

Under the guidance and direction of the Metropolis Committee on Greek Education and Culture, the Greek Village is led by a team of highly-qualified instructors, selected from various Greek language schools in the Metropolis as well as teachers from other parts of the Archdiocese and Greece.

The Greek Village Camp has been made possible through the generous support of Dr. James and Virginia Kallins, Dr. George and Bettina Kallins, and Dr. David Matty and Barbara Kallins Matty.
