Camp Oselia from July 10-16!
This Camp was designed to challenge and bond kids from 7 to 14 years. Daily team-building activities, prayers, physical challenges, and projects to help those around us will create a strong person and community. We enjoyed activities such as:
– Beach time
– Fun games
– Crafts and a whole lot more!
As a part of our camp program, we always want to have fun learning about the faith. This year, we will explore our faith by “Journeying into the Mystical Woods” where we will meet all sorts of important people!
Parents who volunteer for the full week will receive a reduced price of $175 for their first child registered. Complete the registration form for more information.
Ukrainian Nationals who have fled from the war will have their fees covered with proof of the CUAET or other visa. There will be volunteers on site who speak Ukrainian and Russian and will assist in translation.

Victoria has been working with various parish organizations and the Eparchy of Edmonton for several years.

Fr. Bo is a married Ukrainian Catholic priest, iconographer, camp director, and fan of most things nerdy. With his three bright university-aged children and brilliant beautiful wife, he knows his missions in life: to serve God, to support everyone as much as he can, and to tell awful dad jokes. If he is not in the schools, colleges, or at the Eparchial Children’s Camp, Fr. Bo is writing traditional icons and/or woodworking in his garage, or preparing to challenge a group of young adults in an adventure of a lifetime. Both traditional and progressive at the same time, Fr. Bo tries to keep the faith real, practical, and profound for all. …and he cheers for the Roughriders.
