Registration for Fanari Summer Camp

Registration for Fanari Summer Camp will open on Tuesday, March 23rd at 11AM CST.

The Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Chicago announced today the dates and registration information for Fanari Summer Camp, which will take place in person after last year’s cancellation caused by COVID-19.

This summer, Fanari Summer Camp, the flagship of the Chicago Metropolis’ youth ministries, will celebrate its 49th year. After consulting with the Metropolis’ medical advisors and following best practices provided by the Center for Disease Control, the American Camp Association, and the various States where our campers reside, Fanari Summer Camp will be safely conducted in person with appropriate physical distancing and PPE. Fanari Camp is working closely with the St. Iakovos Retreat Center to ensure the safety of all campers, counselors, clergy, and staff.
