Episcopal Church Camp of Illinois
East Bay Camp, Hudson, IL
Each year campers and volunteer counselors gather during the week of the Fourth of July at East Bay Camp. The camp is a joint ministry of the Dioceses of Quincy and Springfield. The campers are divided by age into three sessions: Juniors (1st- 4th grade), Middlers (5th- 7th grade) and Seniors (8th-11th grade). Each session conducts it own program with a session and spiritual director, all under the leadership of the camp coordinator.
The campers participate in daily Mass, Bible lessons, swimming and other outdoor activities. While the sessions are divided, two sessions participate in joint Eucharists each day, and there is a Bishop's Barbeque on Wednesday where one of our bishops hosts dinner for the campers and staff.
The week is a great opportunity for spiritual growth and fun for campers and staff alike.
