'''Camp Nazareth''' is the official Youth Camp, Retreat and Conference Center  for the [[American Carpatho-Russian Orthodox Diocese of the U.S.A.]] The center is located in Mercer, Pennsylvania.

The center, established in 1977, is located on a 289 acre property of rolling hills and open fields in Western Pennsylvania. The center was acquired during the episcopate of Bishop [[John (Martin) of Nyssa|John (Martin)]] and expanded during the episcopate of Metropolitan [[Nicholas (Smisko) of Amissos]].

==Facilities==
The camp possesses living accommodations in ten cabins with a capacity of 176. The cabins are arranged around a large rustic lodge that contains the administrative office and director's residence and a kitchen that supports the dining room that seats 300 people.

The lodge also contains a recreation room, craft room, health center, and gift shop. Facilities for various sports include a large swimming pool, softball field, and hiking trails.

In 2003, the Church of Ss. Cyril and Methodius was added to the camp providing a great improvement for liturgical services for the local [[parish]] community as well as users of the camp facilities. The [[church]] replaced a [[chapel]].
