All in ECCC News

In partnership with the Claggett Center and Diocese of Maryland, for 2020, ECCC will offer five full scholarships and 20 partial scholarships (accommodations and meals; the remaining balance will be $200) to the Annual Conference.

These scholarships are available to self-identifying members of underrepresented or marginalized populations, currently serving, or interested in serving, in rising leadership positions at an Episcopal summer camp, retreat center, or conference center. We invite you to consider with intentionality the members of your staff and community who may be interested in, contribute to, and benefit from attending ECCC’s Annual Conference, and support them in applying and attending.

In Memoriam: Peter Bergstrom

It is with great sadness that we share that Peter Bergstrom, founding member of Episcopal Camps and Conference Centers, its Executive Director for nine years, and Executive Director of Camp Stevens for forty, died on Christmas Eve.

Peter was the 2012 recipient of ECCC's Hero of Camping Ministry award, a visionary and empowering leader of camping and retreat ministries, an advocate for our outdoor places, an incredible mentor, curious traveler, supportive friend, and wonderful partner to Vicki.

If you wish to send a card, the address is 1038 Orchard Lane, Julian, CA 92036. In lieu of flowers, donations to any of the following would support work that was close to Peter's heart: Camp StevensVolcan Mountain Preserve Foundation, and James Hubbell's Ilan-Lael Foundation.
