Young Greek Australians enjoy Summer Camp in Greece


The Greek Community of Melbourne’s (GCM) ‘Greek Summer Camp’ initiative has come to an end for the second year in a row.

Young Greek Australians took part in the camp program from July 1 to July 11 this year, starting in Thessaloniki and including multiple visits to neighbouring towns such as Serres, Kavala and Xanthi.

“From heart-warming friendships to daring outdoor challenges, our campers truly embraced the spirit of adventure and exploration. The memories created during their time in Thessaloniki will be cherished forever!” the GCM wrote in a Facebook post.

The Greek Summer Camp is the result of a long and fruitful partnership between the GCM and the Hellenic Foreign Affairs Ministry. This year was the second time the camp was held after the success of its inaugural year

The GCM said they’re “already looking forward to welcoming new campers next year and creating even more extraordinary experiences.”
