Subdeacon Ilyan Baalbaki – Camp Director
I’m Subdeacon Ilyan, this is my 8th year leading Camp Three Holy Youths (then Camp St. Nicholas). I am a licensed EMT-P and am currently in Seminary School at the Antiochian House of Studies pursuing my Youth Ministry Degree.
Claudine Batarse – Assistant Camp Director
I’m Claudine Batarse and this is my 5th year participating at Campy THY as both a counselor and program coordinator. My favorite parts about camp include interacting and teaching the campers, growing spiritually, and getting faces masks done with the teens!
Fun Fact: I love adventures that involve traveling, trying new foods, and meeting new people. Ironically, I met one of my best friends in an Uber 5 years ago in NYC.
Shadi Azar – Logistics Director
Hey my Name is Shadi Azar and I am one of your camp directors for 2022!
This is my fourth year being a camp volunteer and I’m excited for all the afternoon activities this week. In the past few years my favorite part of camp was the carnival nights with the cotton candy stand but I do really love the beautiful services with all the priests and the kids. It always feels extra special.
Fun fact about me is I fell in love with a fellow counselor over two years ago while prepping for camp and I’m now marrying her.
