Teenage Conference Encampment – Spiritual Success Again

The second session of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church Camping Ministry, Teenage Conference, convened at All Saints Camp from July 10-23, 2016 forging into yet another year of spiritual success! Campers and staff joined together in the spirit of “Faith, Hope and Love”, the TC 2016 theme.

The theme was woven throughout the fabric of the program from workshops, to games to the Ukie Olympics. Who is Christ? Where do we meet Him? What does this mean for salvation? These questions and more were explored, discussed and expanded upon. The camp welcomed various guest speakers, who thoroughly engaged their audience with workshops related to the theme as well as interactive Hot Topics sessions with the spiritual fathers of the encampment (Very Rev. Fr. John Harvey; Very Rev. Fr. Bohdan Hladio).
