“Who are we?” “CAMP ST. THEKLA!”
Camp St. Thekla is an Orthodox Christian summer camp operated by the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Diocese of Miami and the Southeast. It is accredited by the American Camp Association.
Since summer 2011, Camp St. Thekla has met at beautiful Asbury Hills in Cleveland, South Carolina, not far from Greenville. This beautiful site offers hiking, creek playing, views from the mountain chapel, a swimming pool, climbing opportunities, canoeing, zip-lining, archery, and much more.
Our Mission Statement:
The mission of Camp St. Thekla 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. To accomplish this we will seek to bring young people to:
- Awareness of self and fellow man
- A broadening of their Orthodox life
- A greater awareness of their religion
- Good sportsmanship
- Growth in personal relationships and personal responsibility
- An appreciation of nature and a concern for the environment.
