For the last two summers, the diocesan camp has been held at Waypost Camp, a part of Crossways Camping Ministries of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America. Camp Director Erin Wolf describes the facility and the staff who work there as a wonderful fit for our camp program. Starting in 1926, the diocese has never owned a camp facility but has rented space from thirteen different places across the state (see list at end).
The Crossways Camping Ministries newsletter featured this year's EpiscoWisco camp, as a community partner. The article is provided here.
Crossways has a long history of partnering with community organizations. Every program is a little bit different, but they are all mutually beneficial. Our community partners get to enjoy a beautiful environment with abundant hospitality, and Crossways is able to fill our summer calendar. Our newest partner is the Diocese of Fond du Lac of the Episcopal Church. This was their second summer at Waypost, and it’s starting to feel like home to them.
"Here at EpiscoWisco Camp, we are grateful to continue building our relationships with Crossways and Waypost Camp! Our campers and staff were blessed by our time at Waypost Camp in June. Whether working together at low ropes, building confidence at archery, exploring creation on hikes & nature walks, or celebrating Holy Eucharist in the chapel or at the Chi Rho, we were thrilled to have had such a beautiful and holy space to gather. We can't wait to see what God has in store for the 2023 season!"
Camp has been held at a variety of location since 1926: Nepco Lake (Wisconsin Rapids), Camp Cleghorn (Waupaca), Fort Wilderness (Rhinelander), Chute Lake (Mountain), Camp Robin Hood (Green Lake), Camp Pilgrim (Green Lake), Camp Talaki (Waupaca), Camp Webb (Wautoma), Camp Anokijig (Plymouth), Nature’s Edge Camp (Waupaca), Crescent Lake Bible Camp (Rhinelander), Camp Lakotah (Wautoma) and its newest home, Waypost Camp (Hatley).
