Dear Church

by Lenny Duncan


Camp Washington is committed to helping our neighbors by providing individual frozen meals, prepared in-house by Ben, packed and ready to heat. We offer these meals, with love, to our neighbors who need us most right now.


We will distribute meals on Fridays in the front circle driveway at Camp. We will practice all social distancing protocols - cars will drive-up to the table and meals will be delivered to individual car windows. We will provide meals until we run out.


PLEASE share this news with those you know who need meals, or come by and pick up and deliver for those who can't, but need.


ALSO, we welcome donations of non-perishable pantry items which we will in turn offer to our guests who stop by on Friday. Pantry items may be brought to Camp on Wednesdays, a collection area will be set-up in the front circle driveway at Camp.


We are holding you in prayer and look forward to being together again, soon.


During these uncertain times, we are thankful to provide hope and hospitality, as we join Jesus in the neighborhood.

Meal Distribution:  

Friday, August 7, 10am - 2pm

Donation of Pantry Items:

Wednesday, August 5, 9am - 2pm

Camp Washington is a sacred place where God’s love for the world, made known to us in Jesus Christ, is shared with all God’s people through the ministry of hospitality.


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.
