Camping at

Prophet Elias

The mission of our Camping Program is to present to young people a living experience of the Holy Orthodox Faith.  Our small community of campers and staff live together in an uncluttered, natural environment. Camping enables them to experience Orthodoxy within a social environment of peers, caring staff and Spiritual Fathers.

We seek to bring young people to:

  • A broadening of their Orthodox life
  • Develop Orthodox Christian values
  • Growth in personal relationships and personal responsibility
  • An appreciation of God's creation and a concern for the environment.


If you have any general questions about our camping program, please contact:




Prophet Elias Greek Orthodox Church is the rural spiritual centre founded in 1976 by the Greek Orthodox Parish of Saint Nektarios, Toronto.  It is  located in Wollaston Township, Ontario, 20 miles east of Apsley.  Nestled on 200 acres of rolling hills, Evergreen forests, open recreational fields, ancient Maple trees, two small lakes, a pond, a creek, pastures and a small farm, it provides natural and peaceful surroundings appropriate for prayer.

The ability of the natural surroundings to bring one closer  to a prayerful state is enhanced by the beautiful Church of Prophet Elias, the Fiali of the  Life-Giving Spring, the large Cross and the Proskynetaria dedicated to The Holy Transfiguration, St. Nicholas, St. Mary of Egypt and St. John of Cronstadt.
