Whether faith is a factor as to why you have decided to be a part of the Shrine Mont Camps family this summer or not, the discussion of faith on a general and personal level is something that you and your camper can expect throughout a session of camp. While the Episcopal faith is a basis for our camping program at Shrine Mont (as you can see in our mission statement, our camps exist to “promote the emotional and spiritual 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”) and guides many of the activities and conversations that will happen at camp, we feel very strongly that everyone is welcome at Shrine Mont Camps, regardless of belief. To learn more about what you can expect in terms of spirituality and faith at camp, keep reading!
