All Saints Camp celebrates its 32nd year!
A sleep-away camp for those entering third grade through those who just graduated high school, All Saints Camp is set among the pine trees of Prescott, Arizona. This year, our program will again be held at Whispering Pines Camp. Our theme this year is "Stay Alert, Stay Alive", taken from 1 Peter 5:8, where Peter the Apostle writes to various churches suffering persecution that, through Christ, we can remain steadfast and humble.
Our program offers an experience of fellowship and fun, with activities ranging from campfires to Olympics, all within the context of living an Orthodox Christian life of daily Matins, Vespers, and discussion with clergy.
To bring the youth and staff of All Saints Orthodox Summer Camp closer to Christ and one another through a safe, fun, and prayerful environment.
This is accomplished with our trained staff who are all working to grow in their faith.
Our Management Team
CAMP DIRECTOR: FR. APOSTOLOS HILL
There hasn’t been a summer in nearly the last twenty years when Fr. Apostolos has not been involved in camp ministry! For over a eleven years as Dean of Assumption Cathedral in Denver, approaching six years at Holy Trinity Cathedral in Phoenix, and many years with the other parishes where he has served, Father has been a strong force in the realm of youth ministry programs: GOYA, Joy, HOPE, VCS, OCF, to name a few.
With these programs, Father has led trips to Greece, Guatemala, and LA’s Skid Row with OCF’s Real Break program, spent summers at Ionian Village as the Papa, and been a part of All Saints Camp in previous years—not to mention the innumerable youth retreats, service projects, and outings.
Father is both prayerful and excited for this summer. He can’t wait to meet you all!
program director: Jacob Saylor
A native of Virginia, come to the West Coast by way of Boston, Jacob Saylor is the new Pastoral Assistant/Youth Director at Assumption in Scottsdale, Arizona.
A graduate of our seminary at the Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology, Jacob has extensive youth ministry and camping experience, having served at Ionian Village, as well as the summer camp programs of the Metropolises of Atlanta, San Francisco, and the Direct Archdiocese District. In his first year at the helm as Program Director, he is already anticipating how transformational and truly amazing this summer will be. Excited about the relationships that will be forged, the fun that will be had, and the spiritual growth that will no doubt change us all, Jacob is ultimately thrilled about the things God has in store for us this summer.
ADMINISTRATION DIRECTOR: EVAN TSAGARIS
Summer Camp has been a part of Evan's life for as long as he can remember. Growing up at St. Nicholas Ranch, he was blessed to not only enjoy coming in contact with countless youth from across the Metropolis, but also living near the Monastery of the Life Giving Spring helped him to grow in the faith he possesses today.
Evan has participated in camps for over twenty years—from years spent as camper and staff at St. Nicholas Ranch, to participating on staff at Camp Saint Paul in New York, to acting as program director for the vacation church school, Faith and Fun Camp, at Holy Trinity Church in San Francisco—he's been all over.
He is currently the office administrator at Assumption Greek Orthodox Church in Scottsdale. Outside of work, Evan helps at Holy Trinity Cathedral in Phoenix as Sunday school teacher, GOYA advisor, HOPE & JOY advisor, and Greek dance director.
Evan cannot wait to see where All Saints Camp goes: this year and beyond!
ACTIVITIES DIRECTOR: CHRIS FREDERICKSEN
Chris’ origin story begins in Glendale, Arizona, where he has lived all of his life. He grew up spending most of his time Greek dancing, playing sports, and spending his summers at the greatest places in the entire world, camp!
In his downtime, Chris enjoys playing any sport you can think of, binge watching superhero tv shows, and generally having fun with his close friends and family. Chris has been involved with camp ministry for the last twenty-one years as both a camper and counselor, and he can't wait for All Saints Camp to start! See you this summer!
