MAY 2020 - AN UPDATE FROM CAMP WASHINGTON'S EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, BART GEISSINGER:

Dear Camp Washington Family,

 

For more than 100 years, Camp Washington has been a place of welcome, joy, friendship, peace, and renewal. A safe place for all God’s people to come together and celebrate the beauty of creation- the simple joys of life. These last few months have left us isolated, socially distanced, unable to gather at camp, church, schools, or anywhere else. As we learned to cope with the uncertainties of life, the anticipation of summer camp and outdoor activities at Camp Washington promised hope and excitement to our campers and staff. And now, after much discussion, listening, conversation and prayer, I write to you to share the news that no one wants to hear. 

 

In light of the current guidelines that are necessary to keep everyone safe, it is in the best interest of our community and beyond to not open camp this summer. The safety of the campers, staff, and families must be our priority, and I do not feel we could guarantee that. This is one of the hardest decisions I have had to make, but I know it is the right decision. Further, if he hasn’t done so by the time you read this letter, we expect Governor Lamont to direct residential summer camps to close this summer. I know this news is hard to hear, and it breaks my heart to write these words.  Read more...

We are an inviting, diverse, accepting community that offers a safe place for reflection and renewal, education and training, that encourages creativity and a sense of adventure by exploring and experiencing God’s mission of restoration and reconciliation.

 

From summer camp to retreats and diocesan events, Camp Washington is

a year round center for discipleship rooted in the beauty of God’s creation and love.
