Is winter camp pan-Orthodox? This camp has been organized by the Dallas Deanery and Mississippi River Deanery of the Diocese of the South, but we heartily welcome the participation of Orthodox young people from other dioceses and jurisdictions. Each year we have campers from the GOA, AOC, ROCOR and the OCA in attendance. 

What about medical exams? Complete the medical questionnaire when you signup. It would be a good idea to have a camp physical done by your doctor. 

What do I need to bring? An email will be sent out to you covering all you need to know about camp and what to bring. For an overview review the information on the Camp Consent Form. It lists what you need to bring to camp! (In short - sleeping bag, toiletries, bible, and appropriate clothing for games and church).
