On-Site Staff

Ionian Village is fortunate to have an on-site staff maintaining our camp grounds throughout the year. While Ionian Village is in session, they help the camp run smoothly by maintaining the grounds and dishing up delicious, traditional Greek food. Every camper and staff member who has met Kyria Sophia (our devoted cook) and her family and crew, holds a special place in their heart for their loving hospitality.
