Camping Ministry

Joining God in a shared mission is what distinguishes our Camp & Retreat Program from other types of camps and conference center programs. It is our heart – our unique gift to the wider society that God has given us to share. Camp & Retreat ministries consistently draw persons into deeper connection with God and offers prime faith formation experiences. In the midst of God’s creation, our environments of Christian hospitality and learning open people’s souls and hearts in unparalleled ways.

To learn more about camp: Contact the Rev. Canon Carol Sedlacek at CarolS@Diocese-Oregon.org.

Camp was a great success this year!

Episcopal Week at Suttle Lake Camp was July 19 - 24, 2021 and it was a blast! Below are some pictures from this year.

Information about all the camp & retreat options available to us through our partnership with the Camp & Retreat Ministries of the Oregon-Idaho Conference of the United Methodist Church is online at GoCamping.org.
