Bart Geissinger
Executive Director

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 love Camp Washington  >


​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.

Why I am excited to be at Camp Washington >

“I am overjoyed to join the Camp Washington team and become a part of the Connecticut community! I am coming from the University of Arkansas where I will be graduating with my Master of Education in Higher Education this May. My camp experience began before I was old enough to attend, joining my parents at the camp where they volunteered.” Kallie said, “I have had the privilege to experience camp as a camper, CIT, counselor, and staff in both Arizona and Alaska! Camp changes lives and I am excited to be in a camp community that is a part of so many people’s stories.”


Kallie shared, “As much as I love camp, I love to star gaze in my hammock, go to local farmers markets, go on day trips to places I haven’t been before- basically get out and explore! If you have any must-sees or recommendations, let me know! I also love some good coffee, family time, puzzles, and being wrapped up in a fuzzy blanket. I can’t wait to see summer camp in action, and intentional year-round programs blossom! I look forward to meeting you, whether at camp, over coffee, or in the community, and hearing your questions, ideas, or anything else you would like to share.”
