Why Camp Washington is important  >

I am richly blessed to be serving as Executive Director. Some of my greatest childhood memories are of Camp -

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.

Why Camp Washington is a "happy place"  >

​Camp Washington is a kind and caring community in which I have been blessed to work for the past 17 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.

Why I am excited to be at Camp Washington >

I'm so excited to join the Camp Washington family as the Summer Camp and Program Director! I attended camp as a child, and began my career as a camp professional at my home camp, Camp Chanco, down in Southern Virginia as a camp counselor. I’ve served in other staff leadership roles as the Ropes Course Director and the Assistant Camp Director.” Cameron says, “Camp in the Episcopal Church has really formed the person I am today: providing me with a sense of community, wonderful lifelong friends, and giving me the skills to love my neighbor to the best of my ability.”

          

"When I'm not working, I love to hike, play board games, and catch up on new episodes of Star Trek (or watch the classics). I'm really excited to explore the property, and try out the zip line, once it gets warmer! I have been amazed by both the wonderful facilities here at Camp Washington and its community. It is apparent that this camp is loved by the community and has a special place in so many people's hearts. I cannot wait to get to know all of you over the course of the coming months and look forward to welcoming you on campus, or at summer camp!

​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 17 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.
