Trio-Diocesan Council on Aging Annual Fall Camp
October 23-26
Shrine Mont, 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. 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. Back by popular demand will be storyteller, sanctuary gardener, author and ordained minister, Terry Hershey, as our keynote speaker. Bishop Martin Townsend, retired bishop of the Diocese of Easton, returns as chaplain. Once Again we will be entertained by Folk-Theologian Ed Kilbourne. Details and registration materials will be available in July.
