Episcopal Youth Camp

We are pleased to announce that registration for Episcopal Youth Camp this summer is now open!

We will gather the week of August 7th through 13th at Camp Newaygo. All youth, grades 3-12, are invited to join us for a great camp experience. Visit our website, www.episcopalyouthcamp.org to learn more about our sessions, pricing, and more.

Adults interested in volunteering or donating can learn more on our website.

If you have any questions, please email camp@edwm.org.

Nothing is more important to us than the safety of our campers and staff. At the time of our program we will follow the guidelines set by the CDC, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, and the Episcopal Diocese of Western Michigan. We will require rapid COVID testing upon check-in, daily temperature checks and screenings, and will be maximizing time spent outdoors — perfect for camp!

Our volunteers are awesome. We have clergy, teachers, parents, retirees, nurses, lawyers, accountants, and college students. Our oldest counselor is in their eighties and our youngest is 18.

We are seeking volunteers to serve our camp in several areas:

  • As cabin counselors, maintaining a healthy and safe cabin environment for every child and planning and facilitating group activities.
  • In our “pumpkin patch” supporting the children of our other volunteers who are too young to be official campers.
  • As day clergy, celebrating our daily Eucharist and, if you are able, spending time with us throughout the day, in our morning formation and afternoon activities. Overnight accommodations are available.

All volunteers must complete Safe Church certification and undergo a background check.
