As the Psalmist writes, “How good and pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!” (Psalm 133:1)
While 2020 did not allow us to be together physically at camp, our good GOD Who is in all places and fills all things constantly binds us together. Nothing can keep us from the love of GOD. Not even a pandemic!
While the world looks to heal from the virus, we too look towards the Summer of 2021 with the anticipation of being together on the grounds of our beloved campsite in Wagoner, Oklahoma.
Ultimately, we must receive the blessing from the Archdiocese and Department of Camping which very seriously takes the well being of all present into account. While nothing will take place without this blessing, The Camp St. Raphael Leadership Team has begun to plan accordingly so that we will be prepared if and when we receive the blessing to proceed with CSR 2021.
Beloved Family and Campers of Camp St. Raphael,
Camp St. Raphael was founded in 2001 and is the premier Orthodox Christian camp in the Diociese of Wichita and Mid-America for children age 9-17. Located on Lake Ft. Gibson outside of Wagoner, OK, Camp St. Raphael hosts campers for three one-week sessions each year.
