SS Camp 2024 banner

With the blessing of His Eminence Archbishop Makarios of Australia, the Greek Orthodox Christian Society organises the Annual Sunday School Camp. All children in years 4-6 at school and aged 10-12 are invited to attend the 3-day retreat.

This camp is an excellent opportunity for our children to gain a stronger appreciation for, and the practice of, our Christian Orthodox faith. It aims to build on our children’s knowledge of Orthodoxy and will allow them to experience the richness and fullness of our faith in an enjoyable and an exciting atmosphere. This “Orthodox Adventure” endeavours to assist our younger generation in developing a deeper understanding of our beliefs, customs and culture. It also offers an excellent opportunity to meet and make friends with other young Orthodox Christians. During the course of these 3 days, the Sunday School teachers of our parishes will lead the various groups in interesting discussions of a spiritual nature, Bible studies, craft activities, many games and other challenges. A Divine Liturgy will also be another highlight, which will be celebrated on the Wednesday morning of the camp.
