Winter Family Camp is a program that is the same as our summer Family Camp – except it’s during the winter! It is an opportunity for your family to get away from everyday life and take a weekend as a family to grow closer to Christ, in the beautiful setting of the Antiochian Village Camp. At Winter Family Camp, eating a meal together as a family is the norm, not the exception.
Not your typical vacation, Winter Family Camp offers a mini-vacation without maps, lines for popcorn, or decisions over where to eat. Our flexible schedule gives you the choice of “doing it all” from snowtubing to sledding, or just taking it easy sitting around our fireplace.
Because you’re at the Village, the day is measured not so much by hours, but by prayer—the day is bookmarked with Matins and Vespers in beautiful St. Ignatius Church, with services sung by everyone present. Family Builder sessions offer practical, down-to-earth resources for keeping our families strong.
Some of our families come to meet up with families of far-away friends; others have come and made friends and come back to reunite. Either way, in addition to family time, our moms, dads and kids also enjoy meeting and spending time together.
Martin Luther King Jr. Weekend – January 12 – 15, 2018
Our speaker is Sister Ignatia (formerly Sara Bitar, past staff member here at AV)! Sister Ignatia is a Nun at the Monastery of Saint Nina, of the Patriarchate of Georgia, in Maryland. She grew up at St. George Church in Little Falls, NJ and was there until 2005 when she left to become a Nun in Greece. In response to a canonical invitation in 2010, she was sent by her Elder, Archimandrite Dionysios, Abbot of Petra Monastery, Karditsa GR, along with Abbess Aemiliane and other Sisters, to begin a Monastery in the DC area.
