Situated in the hills above Livermore, Camp Arroyo is located at 5535 Arroyo Road. For more campsite information, visit uccr.org/camparroyo

My girls went to this camp and it is LIFE ALTERING. After the first year, they counted DAYS until they could go back the next year. It is a well organized balance of Orthodox Fellowship with kids their own ages, education about the faith, and fun. My girls made Orthodox friends that will last a lifetime.

What kids love about St. Eugene’s Summer Camp

For several decades, youth (ages 7-17) from across the Pacific Central Deanery (and State!) come together for a week to play and pray at St. Eugene’s camp right here in California.

  • Seeing the larger Church beyond just their own parish! Meeting other Orthodox kids (and priests!) from across the state.

  • Doing lots of activities (examples from previous years include: archery, arts & crafts, BB Guns, camp fire, camp olympics, canoeing, Christian ed, hiking, movie nights, pysanky, skits, swimming, volleyball and more!)

  • Immersing in the rhythm of beautiful Orthodox prayers each day including a camper/counselor choir.

  • Finding encouragement in a solid Christian environment.
