Camp St. Herman is an opportunity for children (grades 4-12) from across the diocese to come together in a safe place to learn about the faith of our fathers, participate in the sacraments and make lasting friendships. The program of Camp St. Herman is modeled after the program of the Antiochian Village (Pennsylvania) of the Antiochian Archdiocese, and continues the tradition of the annual Diocese Youth Rally of the OCA Diocese of New England. Camp is held at the St. Methodios Faith & Heritage Center in Contoocook, NH. In addition to our summer program, we offer a weekend Family Camp the first weekend of October each year for families of all ages.
Registration for Family Camp 2021 is open!
St. Herman of Alaska
St. Herman of Alaska is the patron saint of Camp St. Herman. St. Herman lived in 18th century Russia, and came to Alaska as part of a group of missionaries from his monastery. St. Herman is remembered each year on August 9, which would have been the first day of our 2020 camp session and the 50th anniversary of his glorification as a saint.
