Episcopal Diocese of Washington

Engaging a changing world with
an enduring faith in Jesus Christ


Camp EDOW, the diocese's summer camp program promotes the spiritual and emotional development of children, youth, and young adults through the fostering of a safe and positive environment for all. It is the goal of this program to encourage the growth of relationships with self, others, and God. 

This year, EDOW is partnering with the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland and the Claggett Center to bring weeklong camp programs in the rolling hills of Frederick County, MD for our youth, from rising 2nd grade to recently graduated high school seniors.
