Welcome to Camp Washington


Camp Washington is the official Camp and Conference Center

of the Episcopal Church in Connecticut (ECCT).


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.


We hope you will make plans to visit Camp Washington soon! During this time of constant change we strive to provide a safe and inclusive environment at all times. Your health and well being is at the forefront of our event planning processes. At Camp we have embraced the CT Covid guidelines. Event specific details are available at registration. We are here for you as we slowly (and thoughtfully) welcome everyone back to Camp.

In this time of COVID-19 there are some very important guidelines we must follow:
