[Saint Sophia Camp]
2005 Staff

[Bullet] It is the philosophy of the Camp Committee to employ a staff whose primary occupation is in education and who support Orthodox principles. Thus the camp is guided by leaders who understand the needs of Orthodox youth.

The camp director for this year is Perry Skaggs. Perry has been a part of our camping ministry for many years. With an excellent staff and enthusiastic volunteer counselors, he runs a well-rounded program for campers to enjoy.
