Each year OCF celebrates a winter retreat during late December, at the [[Antiochian Village]] in Bolivar, PA, on the East Coast and at St. Nicholas Ranch Dunlap, CA, on the West Coast.
OCF also sponsors Real Break which is an alternative to the "traditional" spring break which many times can be nothing but foggy memories and empty experiences. Real Break also provides opportunities for spiritual growth with one of one interaction with a [[priest]] accompanying each group. The experience also leaves the door open to many important personal realizations.
Over the past four years OCF has had over 350 Orthodox students from all over North America participate in Real Break during their spring break. In 2004 trips were made to [[Project Mexico]], Hogar Rafael Ayau in Guatemala, [[Raphael House]] in San Francisco, Greece and Alaska.
Another effort of the OCF is ''The Basil Leaf'', the official newsletter of the central office. It serves as the main source of communication between the office and all Orthodox students in the country. Specifically, it is a publication that caters to the questions, controversial issues and activities that college-aged Orthodox youth are exposed to in their daily lives and along their journey of faith .
