Founded in 1917 by the Rev. Floyd Kenyon as a summer camp for boys, Camp Washington , a ministry of the Episcopal Church in Connecticut (ECCT), has grown over the years to become a major residential summer camp for boys and girls.
In 1990, work began on a vision to make the facility a year-round Campus serving the broader needs of the Christian community for retreats, training sessions and other church uses for all age groups.
In 1991, new construction and renovation of existing buildings provided a modern Campus able to house and feed 175 people. The 300 acres Campus provides an attractive and quiet area for rest, reflection, renewal, and education.
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! 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. Event specific details are available at registration.
