Camp Nazareth is the official Youth Camp, Retreat and Conference Center for the American Carpatho-Russian Orthodox Diocese of the U.S.A., located, in Mercer, PA. It was established in 1977 By His Grace, Bishop John and has been expanded and improved under the leadership of Metropolitan Nicholas.
Camp Nazareth is a popular gathering place for the youth of the Diocese. Its 289 acres of rolling hills and open fields is the perfect setting for the annual Summer Camping program. Featuring the best accomodations of any Orthodox Camp in America, manicured sports courts, a Junior Olympic Swimming Pool, and the most beautiful Carpathian styled wooden Church, Camp Nazareth is truly the place to be!
As a veteran camper Jenna Goetz of Bridgeport, CT writes:
"Coming to camp, personally, has the feeling of coming home, and being here is like achieving the closest parallel to heaven on earth."
