30 Spots Left for Ionian Village 2022

NEW YORK – There is great excitement as preparations are underway for the 2022 Ionian Village Summer Programs! Spots are available in all programs but are filling up fast and registration will be closing soon.

Ionian Village is the international camping ministry of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America with located in Peloponnesus, Greece. The mission of Ionian Village is to enrich the lives of its participants by bringing campers and staff into close contact with their Orthodox faith and Hellenic heritage by providing the opportunity for young people of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America to foster a life-long appreciation and love of Greece, Orthodoxy, and Hellenism.

The picturesque Ionian Village campgrounds sit along the shores of the pristine Ionian Sea and are equipped with a private beach, a renovated Olympic-sized pool, and various athletic courts and fields. Campers actively explore their Orthodox faith and heritage, both through the daily at-camp program and through excursions to culturally and religiously significant sites throughout Greece. Excursions include Ancient Olympia, Patras, Zakynthos, Kefalonia, Kalavrita, Aegina, and Athens.

Ionian Village offers two fun-filled sessions. Each session is identical in daily schedule and travel locations. Both sessions are open to campers who are currently 9th grade through those who will complete the 12th grade in the spring of 2022.

Dates for Summer Camp are: Session One: June 20 – July 9, 2022 and Session Two: July 21 – August 9, 2022. Enrollment cost includes round trip airfare from New York to Athens.

IV Next is for participants who have completed one year at college or vocational school and up to 24 years old and will run from May 31-June 12, 2022.

IV Next is the only travel based program for young adults that has our Greek Orthodox faith as a core tenet of the program. Only IV Next combines professional development, international travel, and the Orthodox Faith into one all-inclusive program.

Partially underwritten through the generosity of a grant from The Archbishop Iakovos Leadership 100 Fund the 12-day trip will focus on not only the influential excursions of the classic Ionian Village program, but also, the future of the participants by providing access to mentors from across the Archdiocese.
