Children and Young Adult Programmes
We provide two programmes at this event: a Children's Programme for ages 4-10 and a Young Adults Programme, for 11-17. This year the help of the parents with the Children's Programme will be crucial, as many of the regular volunteers are not able to come.
Can I be Orthodox and Cool? (11 to 17 years )
by Ginka Mastoridis & Fr Augustine. Please write below the NAMES and AGES of the registered children who are going to participate in this programme.
Children's Programme (4-10 years)
by Viktor Mastoridis, Helpers & Parents. This year, children are invited to participate on the condition that one parent is expected to contribute 2-3 hours to the programme. A rota of parents will be circulated before the start of the Conference, but the shifts can be swapped on site, with the agreement of Viktor and the Helpers. Please write below the NAMES and AGES of the registered children who are going to participate in this programme, as well as the NAME OF ONE PARENT who is going to contribute 2-3 hours.
*Extra workshops (free time)
The following workshops will take place in the free time
