Camp St. Volodymyr BC 2019
Since 1983, we have been enriching campers in their Ukrainian Catholic faith and culture through game, song, and education. Activities include Ukrainian dance classes, water (swimming, kayaks, canoeing), catechism, arts & crafts, field games, campfires, singing, theme days, and contests. Keeping camp fun and exciting is our number one priority. After all, camp is for the campers!
