Open House and Family Camp Weekend


Weekend-long Open House!

June 1-3

This is a great time for families to come and spend one or two nights and experience camp with their children. This weekend, highly recommended for kids attending Mini Camp or for first-time campers, is a great opportunity for campers to learn the routines and try some of the fun activities, all with the comfort of their families.

Traditional Open House

Bring your family or parish to learn more about what Bishopswood has to offer. Take a tour of camp, swim in beautiful Lake Megunticook, or go for a family canoe ride. Bring a picnic lunch and try some of our famous congo bars. Desserts and beverages will be provided.
