Camp Phoenix is the official summer camp of the Episcopal Diocese of Missouri.
- Mission: “Discovering Christian Community, Growing in Faith”
Camp Phoenix is a traditional summer camp with Episcopal values that seeks to bring campers into contact with God and into closer community with each other. In support of our mission, we focus on three main priorities: to value and love each other, to provide a positive experience and opportunities for spiritual growth.
For one week in late July/early August, campers, counselors, clergy, and staff gather at Dubois Center, located on 240 wooded acres near Nashville, IL. Boys and girls live in separate villages within the camp, and share in activities and meals. Campers swim, ride horses, hike, canoe, and participate in crafts, archery, and an outdoor adventure course. Each day includes a joyful spiritual connection to our Episcopal faith.
Camp Phoenix is led by a camp director and a clergy spiritual director. Assisting them are trained professional staff and volunteers who care for each child and the whole camp family.
At Camp Phoenix, there's always something new to try…a walk in the woods… the campfire’s glow…the joy of God’s creation.
No child should miss camp due to financial need. Assistance through the Daniels Scholarship Fund is available. The scholarship application is available on the camp's website.
