Welcome back home to Camp Washington!
Summer Camp 2021 will be a “different” kind of summer for us all - but - we are getting pretty good at being flexible. The world is changing almost daily, and we will need to remain nimble to change with the guidelines and protocols associated with COVID-19. With that in mind, we cannot make promises to you about what the program will look like, or who will bunk with who. Our focus is to do what is best for the safety and enjoyment of the entire community, and our energy must be focused on that. Thank you for your understanding.
We’ve all been through a lot in the last year- and we are working hard to simply get our campers and staff back to camp. If you find flexibility to be a challenge, this may not be the summer for you. We respect that, and invite you to consider waiting until next summer.
As we continue to live with COVID-19, we also learn as we try-on new things and listen to the science and guidance of experts.
The safety and well-being of our campers and staff is the #1 priority as we design plans and programs for this summer. We have shortened the number of sessions available, and have reduced our registration capacity, allowing us to create more space in the cabins and common areas. Campers will travel in cabin pods with established protocols for each pod.
Our second priority is simply to bring our campers back home to camp. We are working hard to develop the best summer program possible that allows everyone to experience camp, make friends, stay safe, and have fun!
We are following the guidance of the American Camp Association (ACA), the Center for Disease Control (CDC), Episcopal Camps & Conference Centers (ECCC), and the State of CT to determine the layers of protection Camp Washington will need to implement this to insure the safest summer possible. Some activities will look and feel different, some will be new, and some may simply not be possible this summer. However, we believe that creating a summer camp experience for our families is perhaps more important this summer than ever before.
In the coming months, we will share our guidelines with you once you register, and will ask you to take an active role with your camper in understanding your responsibilities in making this summer successful. Many rules, policies and protocols will be different - one thing will not change: the opportunity for your camper to come home to Camp Washington to have fun, reconnect with friends, staff, and our creator in the beauty of this amazing campus. Thank you for your continued understanding and support.

Camp Washington has been nurturing exploration and transformation for over 100 years! Established in 1917, Camp Washington’s beautiful 300 acre campus in the Litchfield Hills welcomes people of all faith traditions to find God in nature, to relax and learn, to have fun and make life long friends! Camp Washington is the official camp and retreat center of the Episcopal Church in Connecticut.
We strive to create a community where children and staff, through teamwork, individual exploration and worship, can grow closer to God, as revealed in Jesus Christ. At Camp Washington we promote the enjoyment of nature through education and creativity, the strength of a community based on both togetherness and independence, and the ability to enable each person towards the recognition of their responsibility as stewards of God’s creation.
