I Wish I Could Go to Summer Camp!

Not a year goes by that we don’t get approached by an adult who says, “I wish I could go to summer camp!” Camp Wise is a direct response to this and will provide the opportunity for seniors throughout the Diocese of California to experience camp, some for the first time and for others the opportunity to go to camp again!

St. Dorothy’s provides summer camp to over 400 youth as well as youth, young adult and adult programs. Attending camp provides young and old an opportunity to experience the healing that we believe can occur by being in nature. Camp also is a place where participants can meet new people, play and try new things. Our staff is uniquely equipped to provide seniors with a memorable camp experience that is full of fellowship, fun, activities, worship, s’mores & more!

Camp Wise is a 4-day experience that invites Seniors (60+) to come and experience highlights of our summer camp program with peers.

  • Day 1: Campers will be introduced to St. Dorothy’s, program staff and camp chaplain.
  • Days 2 & 3: Include a morning and evening chapel, activity times where campers will self-select from a wide variety of activities such as arts & crafts, archery, drama, tea party, canoeing, swimming, fishing, hiking, etc. and will conclude with Eucharist, a celebration dinner and dance.
  • Day 4: Campers will receive awards, participate in the pin ceremony and closing chapel.

St. Dorothy’s Rest receives funding from the Episcopal Diocese of California, parishes, individuals and foundations so that no camper is every turned away from attending camp due to an inability to pay.
