ECCC's Visionary & Advocacy Council members are lay and ordained leaders with a passion for camping and retreat ministry. Through their advocacy and participation at an annual visioning meeting, council members help broaden the vision of the ECCC Board of Directors and ensure a sustainable future for Episcopal Camps and Conference Centers.

This year's gathering will be at Beckwith in the Diocese of the Central Gulf Coast, October 23-25, 2017. See the details and register for the meeting here.  

“Episcopal camps and conference centers are the heart of the Church. They are places where faith is formed and lived at a deep level, where Gospel-centered communities take root, where folks can reflect, recharge, gain perspective. Supporting these centers through ECCC’s Visionary Council is not only a chance to meet interesting people who are inspired by this vision – it’s a way to help create a more hopeful and healthy world.” —Canon Mark Farmer (Diocese of California)

Please contact Ashley, Director of Communications & Development, if you would like to nominate someone for membership on the Council.
