OUR MISSION>

The Diocese of Virginia’s summer camp program at Shrine Mont promotes 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.

At Shrine Mont Camps, we strive to create a diverse and safe community that welcomes campers and staff from all backgrounds. We do not discriminate on the basis of gender, race, religion, creed, color, national or ethnic origin, physical or mental ability, or sexual orientation in the administration of any of our programs. All camp activities will promote and maintain the personal and emotional safety of all campers and staff.

Express yourself!  At Art Camp we work on projects in a variety of media, allowing campers to express their individuality and creativity. We explore how this creativity can bring us closer to God while also enjoying all the usual camp activities - camp fires, swimming, games, singing, worship, and more.  You don’t need to be a master
artist, just be interested in creating, having fun and making new friends.

Art Camp allows children of all ages to attend at the same time- ages 8 to 15.  If you've been looking for a camp that your children can go to together, or the youth from your church can all go as a group, this is your chance.  Campers will be placed in cabins by ages.  For some activities the camp will be split into two groups, 8-12 year olds and 13-15 year olds; for other activities we will have the entire camp together.

Let your voice be heard! Music and Theatre (MAT) is a high-energy camp focused on the preparation of a biblically based musical that features the unique talents of each performer. Campers make the musical their own by learning songs and movements and creating sets and costumes. In addition, we swim, hike, play games, worship and make life-long friends.

 

The older session of MAT takes their show "on the road". Campers tour around the Shenandoah Valley performing their show, meeting enthusiastic audiences, and seeing a professional musical. This age group also stays in the cottages near the hotel.

Avoid the crowds at St. Andrew's Camp. This is an intimate, "family-style," camp setting offered for children who thrive in an environment with high levels of structure and personal attention. This is an excellent camp for children with specific social, environmental or behavioral needs; past campers have been on the autism spectrum or had severe ADHD. The small number of campers allows kids to be introduced to a camp program that is less overwhelming in size, but still offers camping, art, swimming, singing, sports, and worship together. The camper/staff ratio is 2:1 and maximum number of campers is 10.

St. Elizabeth's Camp provides individuals with mild to moderate disabilities the opportunity to participate in traditional camp activities in a supportive environment.  Our campers have their own volunteer counselor buddy who will be a constant friend and assist in daily activities. Together they will stay in cabins and share many exciting activities including swimming, canoeing, worship, art, and games.  A typical St. Elizabeth's camper is between 14-25 years old, attends to personal needs independently, and effectively communicates with others.

The staff of St. Elizabeth's is composed mainly of high school aged youth who volunteer their time to be counselor buddies.

St. George's Camp is a classic large summer camp featuring hiking, swimming, sports, music, crafts, canoeing, and overnight camp-outs all flavored with dearly-held traditions of zaniness! The heart of St. George's Camp is its focus on the unique and infinite value of every member of the camp community. With I Corinthians 12-27 (we are all essential members of the one Body) as a point of reference we encourage both faith and questions as we strive to celebrate the unique gifts of every camper, regardless of his or her faith background or commitment.
