The Camp Oselia adventure is a two week children’s summer camp provided by the Ukrainian Catholic Eparchy of Edmonton’s Youth Ministry Office.

Although primarily advertised in the Ukrainian Catholic Church, children do not have to be Catholic to attend. The goal of the camp is to provide a safe positive environment for children to play and learn together, as members of God’s family.

Plastyanytsya Hop

Plastyanytsia Hop 2013

The UCY’s annual Plastyanytsia Hop for the 2013 Easter Season was very successful. The youth travelled to eight different churches as a group. Over the course of the afternoon, the number of participants ranged from five to thirteen. Youth came from around four or five different Parishes. The event started at 4:00 on the south side of Edmonton at St. Nicholas and wound its way around the whole city ending up in each end, at one of the many Ukrainian Catholic churches and ended up downtown at St. Josaphat’s Cathedral ending closer to 11:00pm. The youth learnt a lot by having self lead sessions or by spending times singing, praying and speaking with our many different clergy members. The event was enlightening and a growing experience!563631_10151325333281431_1243520404_n 734462_10151325333156431_1071312309_n 545295_10151325333201431_1708580017_n Plastyanytsia Hop  2013
