NEW YORK – Ionian Village, the unique summer camping program located in Greece and operated by the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, announces that scholarships are available for campers in need of financial assistance.  Teens who have completed grades 7-12 may attend either Summer Travel Camp (STC) July 1-20, 2010 or Byzantine Venture (BV) July 25-August 13, 2010.  

“Once again, Faith Endowment is generously offering a number of scholarships for potential campers wanting to attend Ionian Village this summer,” says Fr. Jason Roll, Director of Ionian Village.  “I am thankful to the Faith Endowment organization and applaud their dedication and enthusiasm in helping to provide the unique Orthodox and Hellenistic Ionian Village camp experience to teens in need of financial assistance.”

Teens and young adults, who participate in Ionian Village travel across Greece, venerate the relics of saints, walk in the footsteps of the Apostles, and visit significant sites of Greek history and culture.
