Fall Camp

Shrine Mont

Fall Camp is a four day adult conference sponsored by the Tri-Diocesan Council on Aging which represents all three Episcopal dioceses in Virginia: Dioceses of Virginia, Southwest Virginia, and Southern Virginia. It is held Mon-Thurs each year in October at Shrine Mont Conference Center, in Orkney Springs, VA.

Fall Camp is an opportunity to spend time in the mountains of Virginia with other seniors (but we don’t have an age limit) from across the Commonwealth and from other states. The Camp is an attempt to take seriously the spiritual needs and journeys of primarily retired people. We attempt to challenge participants through keynote speakers, workshops, worship and interaction with one another.

We worship together in daily sessions, explore various issues, and participate in one or two session workshops (each session is an hour and a half) on a variety of topics. Workshops will be announced later this summer We always have a keynoter, a chaplain and our folk theologian, Ed Kilbourne, who leads us musically and tells amazing stories . A social “half-hour” is held before dinner each evening.

In addition to the scheduled activities, there is plenty of time to sit on the porches, visit with friends,relax, and enjoy the amazing scenery and to explore the surrounding area.
