Mission Statement

The mission of Camp Transfiguration is to present to young people a living experience of the Holy Orthodox Faith, in their relationship with God and other campers in an uncluttered, natural environment. Translated to Greek, “transfiguration” becomes “metamorphosis” which literally means, “to change”. Camp Transfiguration aims to instil in all of its campers, staff and volunteers the glorious teachings of Jesus Christ, as well as the traditions of the Orthodox Church, for their spiritual growth and for the glorification of God. To accomplish this, we will seek to bring young people to:

  • Awareness of self and their fellow man in God
  • A deepening of their Orthodox way of life
  • A greater awareness of their living religion
  • Good sportsmanship in the fellowship of divine love
  • Growth in personal relationships and personal responsibility
  • An appreciation of nature and a concern for the environment
