Our Mission

To Preserve and perpetuate the Greek culture and traditions.

To inspire curiosity and understanding of the Greek Heritage.

To act as a bridge between the past and the future.

To provide a safe environment where the Greek Village Campers can spend a week with positive role models while developing their social skills, make new friends and create fun memories.

We will achieve these goals by exposing the young minds to a different geographic region of Greece every year and by teaching them the local history, dances, music, arts, myths, geography, cooking and much more.

Our Story

Our Greek Village concept was born from the Vision of a handful Greek families back in 2010, with 25 kids, hard work and was primarily privately funded.

Today our Greek Village is a success story and in 2014 the program hosted over 90 campers.

The Dream of preserving The Greek Heritage in all its forms, language, astronomy, theater, dance, and cuisine stared a domino effect. Finally, the Torch has been passed to the willing hands of a new Greek/American generation.

Our Teachers

We are exceptionally proud of our Greek teachers. We hire responsible, caring, talented young men and women that lead by example to guide, and teach our campers.

They are fluent in the Greek language and are aware that our Greek village camp is a tremendous amount of work and responsibility. Most of our teachers and staff are returning to our Greek Village year after year. They are familiar with the educational aspect of the program and come to St. Nicholas Ranch with the intention of creating a meaningful, fun, safe, and inspiring experience for the campers.



One of the best summer camp experiences my children and I have ever participated in. This Greek camp incorporates both the Hellenic village (Horio) life with modern day traditional heritage by providing a weekly curriculum of language, song & dance, traditional culinary lessons of Greek food, mythological folklore amongst many other lessons. After a fun packed educational day at the Horio the children would unwind by either a swim the their Olympic size pool or out under the stars singing along to a bonfire camp song. There was so much to do and everything was very well thought out.

Throughout the years, my work as a counselor at Our Greek Village has been incredibly enjoyable. I adore seeing new friendships among the girls my cabin; I value the new relationships I have made with the campers and the staff. Due to the immersion aspect of the camp, I had the ability to share my knowledge in Greek culture and language with my campers, which I found incredibly rewarding. I extended my mythology passion to bedtime stories for the campers. Finally, I also appreciate the sense of community “Our Greek Village” fosters and every year I look forward …
