Trinity Center and Hurricane Florence: November 2018 Update!
After seven weeks of assessment, mitigation, demolition and renovation, Trinity Center slowly began to re-open its doors in late October. As the bones of the center have been laid bare and many of the buildings have been rebuilt, we have begun to feel incredible gratitude. We are grateful for the many businesses and organizations that have come together to help us recover. Donations have helped keep the lights on, helped pay employees, helped us re-open sooner. They have been a lifeline through many dark days. We still have a long road ahead of us as we continue to prioritize projects, but our friends and supporters have made that road seem much shorter. If you wish to donate, visit our secure Giving Page. Donate to the Annual Fund, and in the Comments section, just write "Hurricane Florence Relief." You can easily make a one-time or recurring donation. We are so grateful for your support.

Trinity Center of the Episcopal Diocese of East Carolina
Welcome to Trinity Center, an island refuge on the Southern Outer Banks. Come and walk our beaches or stand and watch the sunset on our sound-side pier, and perhaps catch a glimpse of the snowy white egret or majestic blue heron.
Unparalleled in design, our contemporary buildings are set in restful surroundings, ideal for seminars, conferences or retreats. Sensitive to the island environment, Trinity’s award winning landscape supports a relaxing, non-commercial atmosphere. We provide 44 private double occupancy rooms with private baths (88 beds), plus 4 dormitory-style cabins with 100 beds, and our private retreat house for 12 persons. Six of our private rooms are handicapped accessible. Plentiful, delicious food is served family style or buffet in our 2 dining rooms that can accommodate up to 225 people.
Trinity Center is home to Camp Trinity, a residential Episcopal summer camp that allows campers to share in a Christian program that helps them grow spiritually and emotionally while giving them opportunities to develop new interests, skills, and friendships. It is also home to The Sound to Sea Environmental Education Program, the only residential environmental education program on the Outer Banks, which offers school groups a multi-disciplinary hands-on learning experience. And we have hands-on educational programs for adults as well through our Road Scholar programs.
Whether you are coming to our camp, environmental program, retreat house or conference center, our experienced and professional staff is waiting to help you plan and implement your experience.
Trinity Center provides a variety of modern facilities and comfortable accommodations to meet the needs and desires of conference groups, youth camps and programs.
The sixty-two acres that comprise Trinity Camp, Conference and Retreat Center were given to the Diocese of East Carolina in 1949 by Alice Green Hoffman.
