REGISTER TODAY: "Understanding and Praying with Icons," an intimate, prayerful retreat experience led by the Right Reverend Robert Ihloff, Assisting Bishop of the Diocese of Maryland.

Icons (holy pictures) have become popular in Episcopal Churches and among Episcopalians in the past several decades. Icons have since ancient times been essential parts of Eastern Orthodox worship both in churches and in homes: a Biblical scene, Biblical person, or Saint is not worshipped, but is a vehicle for our worship. Icons draw us in so that we can better appreciate the Biblical scene, some aspect of the life of Jesus or his mother Mary, or one of the other saints. Everything about Icons is symbolic, and even the perspective of the Icon is reversed from what we expect in western art since the Renaissance. Everything in an Icon is a thread drawing us closer to God, to Jesus, or to one of the Saints.

Join Bishop Ihloff to learn about and worship with icons; enjoy an opportunity for personal prayer and retreat on Claggett's beautiful campus this fall. Register online today:

2020 Summer Camp Announcement

Dear friends,

After much prayer, research, and deliberation, we have made the difficult decision to cancel all scheduled summer camps for 2020.

This decision was made out of love for our campers, staff, their families, and our local community, even as it was made with heavy hearts. In the early phases of re-opening in the state of Maryland, restrictions on group sizes, social distancing, and use of communal space would limit who we could serve and alter essential parts of the camp experience as we know and love it. We are not willing to hold camp that leaves out members of our community or exposes them to an unacceptable level of risk.

We know that this news is difficult to hear, and that many of you join us in grieving the camp experience we’d planned for this summer. Even in the midst of this sadness, we are convinced that God will still move in our lives through Claggett this summer. We are committed to offering ways to gather with friends, worship God, ask big questions, and laugh together, even if it looks nothing like we’ve ever experienced before.

Give a child rest, peace, and room to breathe. Support the Camp Scholarship Fund today! claggettcenter.org/support

Dear Friends of the Claggett Center,

The past month has brought changes to seemingly every aspect of our lives--from school, to church, to the grocery store, and especially to our homes. At Claggett, the campus is quiet and we are praying continually for our campers, staff, and everyone for whom Claggett is a holy place of rest.

As staff members work remotely and maintain social distance, we are diligently moving ahead with preparations for the summer. We’re holding tight to memories of summers past, and looking forward to the day when Powell Hall is full of campers and St. Andrew’s chapel is reverberating with the sounds of their worship. At the heart of camp ministry is the belief that we are deeply formed as Christians simply by being together--sharing meals and dormitories, worship and play. We believe that this life in community can change young peoples’ lives, and we will be ready to welcome campers home to Claggett as soon as it’s safe to do so.

We are seeing nationwide that communities are stepping up to help their neighbors. If you are able to make a gift toward a camper’s experience at Claggett, we encourage you to do so today. We are seeking contributions to the Camp Scholarship fund, used for all youth camps, and to Camp Spirit Song, a week of camp especially for young people affected by a loved one's opioid addiction.

If you aren’t able to make a financial contribution, we humbly ask for your prayers-- for each camper who comes through Claggett this year, and for the counselors who will guide them.

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected every family and every child differently. With schools moving online and kids staying home with their families, summer camp is more important than ever. After this spring, who wouldn’t crave time to run freely in the front field, or feel the wind as they paddle down the Monocacy River? Perhaps most importantly, camp is a safe place for young people to process the year that’s passed and ask big questions about their faith. We’ll all have a lot to reflect on this summer, and a lot to celebrate when we can gather together in person.

Please join us in ensuring that no camper misses the opportunity to attend camp because of financial need. Give today.

Yours in faith,
James Ryder -and- Lisa Marie Ryder
Co-Executive Directors

In the event that on-site camp is cancelled this summer due to COVID-19 restrictions, we have plans to gather with campers in other ways. Your gift will remain in a restricted fund for use towards scholarships in 2021.

Faithful leaders from Maryland and DC gathered today to begin building a vision for the future of children and youth at the Claggett Center.

What are some of your dreams for programming and facilities for children and youth at Claggett?

Claggett To Close March 13-27, 2020

The Claggett Center is joining other large institutions in taking action to protect public health and safety and limit the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic in Maryland and our region.
The Claggett Center will close to guests beginning at noon today, March 13 until noon, March 27, 2020.

This decision is in line with the direction of government officials; yesterday afternoon Maryland Governor Larry Hogan issued an executive order that all public schools close until March 27 and public gatherings of 250 or more are prohibited.

While it is sad there will be no opportunities for the dynamic summer camp activities for the youth, it is for the protection of the children and staff. Social distancing would have been impossible. Staying safe till the virus hopefully diminishes is the ultimate goal, Our children are tomorrow's hope and future for this country. Pray for them and pray for those affected by the virus.
