Camp Trinity Summer Camp

 

Camp Trinity is a summer program sponsored by the Episcopal Diocese of East Carolina to serve the 74 parishes of the diocese. Camp Trinity is proud to be accredited by the American Camping Association. Developed exclusively for the camp industry, this nationally recognized association focuses on program quality and health and safety issues, and requires camp to regularly submit every facet of its operation to an independent appraisal by camp experts.

Camp Trinity offers young people (grades 2-12) an opportunity to experience camping in an enjoyable and beautiful setting along Bogue Sound and the Atlantic Ocean. Campers share in a Christian program that helps them grow spiritually and emotionally and provides them opportunities to develop new interests, skills, and friendships

The camping program is administered by an experienced staff, with a ratio of one staff person to every four campers. The summer staff consists of trained counselors who are responsible for the care and nurturing of campers in their cabin life and camp activities; program staff who plan and implement the recreational program activities for campers; a certified staff of lifeguards and instructors who oversee the swimming and boating programs; and a nurse who cares for the medical needs of the campers.

In 2017, nearly 600 campers were involved in the summer program. For further information about the program, please call the Camp Registrar at Trinity Center (1-888-874-6287) or by e-mail Camp Registrar.
