About Pandemic Protocols
We continue to track the pandemic and ways that it may impact the camp program. Working with our diocesan Covid Task Force, our camp physician, and Crossways Camping Ministries, along with information available through the Centers for Disease Control, Episcopal Camps and Conference Centers and the American Camp Association, protocols will be in place during camp sessions to minimize the risk of transmission. While the specific protocols to follow will not be decided until shortly before camp, the variety of options will have been researched and understood. At a minimum they will include masking and social distancing. Meals and activities will be outside as much as possible. More detail may be found in our Final Details Letter.
All Are Welcome
The Episcopal Diocese of Fond du Lac Summer Camp is open to all ages to learn more about God, community and self with a lot of fun! Ages 4 through 12th grade are campers. Adults and older youth may serve as volunteer staff. All faiths are welcome to attend.
Pandemic precautions will mean we won't have as many spots open for campers as we have in the past, so please register as soon as possible so we don't have to inform you we've run out of space!
Program and Activities
The focus is faith development. We hope you will be able to attend in person. We are taken extra precautions related to pandemic protocols. But we know not all will be comfortable with in-person camp so online and @home activities will also be offered. Interest in @home camp? Let us know.
Program staff are volunteers committed to Christian formation who plan activities. Many were once campers. Each volunteer brings their gift of experience to camp.
Camp for the Future
A series of discussions Held in 2019 to make camp the best it can be
Camp goals described as three C’s.
- Community – building relationships between each other and with God
- Creation – being in, honoring and enjoying God’s creation
- Cloister – separating intentionally from everyday life to enhance our focus on Community and Creation.
A report from the discussions are available here.
