On Sunday, February 9th, we invite every congregation to lift up Shrine Mont Camps during worship.

Here are some ways to celebrate!

  • Every congregation member should wear their camp shirts if they have them!

  • Bless those who will go to camp this summer.

  • Pray for camp during the Prayers of the People.

  • Reflect on camp ministry or SMC in a sermon.

  • Invite a current or former camper, staffer, or parent to preach or offer a reflection.

  • Make Sunday forum all about camps.

  • Sing a favorite Shrine Mont song.

  • Say the Shouting Prayer at the end of the service.

"​this will be an opportunity to support a vital ministry of our Diocese – perhaps the single best thing the Diocese does altogether as the 'larger Church.'"
​- Bishop Susan Goff, April 2018

If you are able to only do one thing, we ask that you designate your loose plate offering on Sunday, February 9th for camper scholarships.

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.
