Summer Camp Programming

BAR-V-NOK Summer Youth Camp takes place every summer at our beautiful facility offers a quintessential overnight camp experience in a Ukrainian Orthodox setting. Children 7-15 enjoy a wide variety of cultural, sporting, religious and recreational activities, throughout this fun-filled, 3-week summer adventure! Camp BAR-V-NOK is the perfect way to get the most out of summer and make lifelong memories from lakeside activities, off-site excursions, and unforgettable “vatra” (bonfire) and “zabava” (dance) nights.

Campers spend their days and evenings participating in: Traditional Ukrainian arts and crafts workshops; Ukrainian dance classes; swimming and canoeing; folk singing and music classes; guest presentations; theme days; talent shows; friendly competitions; beach activities; zabavas, vatra nights; survival skills; nature walks; religion lessons and services.
