Our diocese is near and home to several Episcopal summer camps where young people can explore their relationship to God through all the astonishing natural beauty our region has to offer. Swimming, hiking, boating, rock climbing, worship services, camping, and the chance to make friends for life, are just some of the activities offered by summer church camps.
