The St. Nicholas Chapel at Camp Three Holy Youths is the physical structure of our lives as Christians, but also everything we do in our lives as Christians. Our entire experience as Orthodox Christians and as Disciples of Christ reflect around our life in St. Nicholas Chapel at Camp Three Holy Youths.
The structure of our camp is the structure that we should model our lives around as Orthodox Christians.
We begin with prayer as the first and last thing we do before we sleep and after we wake up. We take time to thank God for the gifts he has satisfied us with (food). We pray for our brothers/sisters, family members and loved ones and we pray for those who need it.
The Christian Life at Camp THY is the Christian Life we should all strive to achieve.
“For with two or three are gathered in my name, I am with them” Matthew 18:20
