Bart Geissinger

Executive Director

I am richly blessed to be serving as Executive Director. Some of my greatest childhood memories are of this place and I couldn’t wait to introduce my son to Camp Washington. The community here is inclusive and welcoming. We invite God’s children of all ages into a safe place to explore their faith, and their relationship and responsibility to creation, a place to simply play and be God’s children. The simple joys of a sunset, a campfire, a summer afternoon rain shower, the smile of a child making a new friend, the high five of a victorious capture the flag game are the things that bring me joy. I couldn’t think of a better place to “work” and I am so excited about the future of Camp Washington.

Ben Thompson

Chef & Director of Food Services

CW is a wonderful community of diverse personalities, where EVERYONE  is welcomed and accepted.  As Chef and Director of Food Services, I’ve worked and lived at Camp Washington with my family for 15 years.  I cannot think of a better place to raise a child or work.  It has become a beloved part of our lives and for that we are grateful.

Camp Washington is a kind and caring community in which I have been blessed to work for the past 15 years… it’s my "happy place".  Coming to Camp has given me so much; family, fun, faith, creativity & much more.  Not only do I get the enjoyment of meeting new people all of the time, but also I see familiar faces return to Camp year after year. Camp Washington is a place where you can be yourself, surrounded by nature and community.

Join The Rev. Marilyn Anderson

“Who’s Afraid of the Big, Bad Wolf?”


In the Bible and in our Western culture the wolf has been viewed as a threatening, rapacious, calculating animal.  We might even say that each of us has a ‘shadow’ side that is more like wolf than angel.  But throughout our spiritual journeys we are called to befriend our inner wolves and to let the Holy Spirit shine God’s redeeming light on them.  We’re called to incorporate our redeemed inner wolves into our lives through and through, for that is the only way we can achieve a more mature state of wholeness in God’s eyes and in our own souls.  We’ll look at how wolves are portrayed in the Bible and then we’ll consider two legends from the Christian tradition that present the wolf as redeemed predator—the stories of the martyrdom of King Edmund of England and the legend of Saint Francis and the Wolf of Gubbio.

“In Your Own Words: Retelling Scripture”

Join Maggie Breen, NE Region Missionary, and Fr. Brett Figlewski, St. Paul’s, Bantam, as we crack open our sacred Scripture together.  We will discover how meaningful it can be when we put ourselves into the Scripture, by working in small groups to retell the lessons.  Our time together will start with a reflection by Maggie, followed by work in small groups to shape the lessons for the day, and it will all be tied together as Rev. Brett leads us through the holy mystery of Communion in his own words.  Come and see; come and experiment; come and experience together a new way to read, hear, and inwardly digest Holy Scripture.
