Camping in Vourniotissa 2007
In the marvellous natural environment of the region of Vournion and
under the roof of the Virgin Mary of Vourniotissa was held, for yet
another year,the camp of Tinos Sunday School of Holy Mitropolis of
Syros - Tinos. The camp was held for 12 days (22 June - 3
July 2007) and in it, took part, 28 girls and 30 boys in two time
periods. In its duration the children came in contact with the various
natural beauties of the mountain and the sea, were entertained with
the various common games and participated in athletic tournaments,
basketball, football, ping-pong etc. At the same time learned about
the surrounding region, like the small church of prophet Ilias in the
opposite hill and the adoration of Virgin Mary "Kakia
Skala" in Falatados. Remarkable, was the mountaineering in Tsiknias,
where the children climbed at the top of the mountain in the small
church of prophet Ilias. From there, they admired the exceptional view
of Tinos and the surrounding islands.
Then they visited Panagia Faneromeni from the Eastern side of the
mountain, where again the view to the Aegean sea was something unique.
The children participated willingly in various services of the camp,
offering their services voluntarily and with joy. The
daily program began and finished with a prayer to Jesus Christ
for the gift of life which gives in all the people. May next year we
be fortunate to organise yet another camp in Vourniotissa with
the same liveliness and joy.
