The Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Detroit Summer Camp 2020
The Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Detroit summer camps are taking advantage of technology, reaching out to campers to raise their spirits and to bring camp into their homes, despite the closure of camps due to the COVID-19 pandemic. MDSC (Metropolis of Detroit Summer Camp), one of three summer camp programs in the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Detroit, assembled its core program staff to assemble a touching video for all of its campers - expressing what summer camp means to each of them. They are also hosting weekly evening prayer gatherings on Mondays to promote faith and fellowship during this time.
Eva Konstantakos, the Director of Youth and Young Adult Ministries of the Metropolis of Detroit, shares the motivation behind this video. “Orthodox Christian summer camps, in our Metropolis and throughout the Archdiocese, are undeniably transformative ministries in the lives of the campers and the staff. The staff of MDSC is showing great strength and resilience by moving forward and offering hope through this video. It is a testament that our camp programs will still serve the people, just in a different and unique way.”
