One of the keys to the success of Ionian Village is its remarkable staff of talented and dedicated Orthodox Christian adults.
Our staff is selected from hundreds of applicants from across America, that undergo a rigorous application and interview process, and a thorough background investigation. Once accepted, each staff member contributes their own expertise to Ionian Village's program during extensive planning sessions, and takes part in an intensive orientation and training program prior to camp.
With an average staff-to-camper ratio of 1:7, Ionian Village adheres to the American Camping Association's staff ratio standards, and is one of the most well supervised youth programs in existence.
To ensure the health and safety of all participants at Ionian Village, our staff includes Registered Nurses and/or Medical Doctors, and an experienced aquatics staff of certified lifeguards and water safety instructors.
The spiritual life and religious instruction of the camp is led and coordinated by priests who participate from throughout the Archdiocese of America.
