At St. Crispin’s, we show the way the world could be through worship, learning, rest and play in the great outdoors. With eight sessions of summer camp for campers in kindergarten-adult ages, there are many opportunities to enjoy our 450 acres of God’s beauty! As a community, we promote kindness, consideration and acting as Christ for others. Everyone has something special to give and to gain from their time at camp, and the qualities that make each camper unique are embraced and encouraged. St. Crispin’s has long been a site for the development of personal and social identities and skills; a space for “safe socialization” that is free of fear of stigma while promoting self-expression. As such, St. Crispin’s is an inclusive and affirming camp. We welcome campers of all of races, religions, gender identities and expressions, and orientations. St. Crispin’s is often referred to as a “thin space”- a place where the distance between heaven and earth is just a bit smaller. Campers are forever touched by God in this place of beauty, joy and good company.

Age Groups for Summer Camp:
Grade based on 2019-2020 school year:
Can my camper attend a session for a younger or older age group? The age groups are divided very intentionally. It is very rare that we allow a camper to attend a different age group’s session.

Summer Camp is held each year at St. Crispin's Summer Camp:St. Crispin's Camp36302 St Hwy 9Wewoka, OK 74884
The truth is that our registration cost has remained relatively
level, while the costs to provide our high quality program continue to
rise. This rise is due
to increases in food, lodging, staffing, and equipment costs.
We want all children and youth to be able to experience St. Crispin’s
Summer Camp, regardless of their family’s financial situation or their
church’s financial situation. Rather than raise prices on all families,
tiered pricing gives families the freedom to choose a camp fee that fits
their financial situation. The tiers recognize that some families are
able to pay closer to the full cost of camp, while others have the
freedom to choose a subsidized cost without having to fill out any extra
forms. The idea here is shared responsibility.
The Episcopal Diocese of Oklahoma will continue to subsidize Summer
Camp to keep the cost of camp down for all our campers, and we are
asking our families to prayerfully consider which registration level is
appropriate for their financial capabilities.
All campers receive the same quality camp experience regardless of which fee* is chosen.
*The Camp fee covers your camper’s meals & snacks, lodging,
Camp t-shirt, and picture. No additional money is needed during the camp
* Please note that Adult Camp prices are for single-sex cabins only. Lodge rooms can be purchased by calling the camp.
We do require a $100 deposit to secure each camper’s spot.
The remaining balance of your camp fee can be paid anytime up to June
1st. If you register after June 1st you must pay in full. If we do not
receive payment by such time or you have not made alternate arrangements
with us, your spot will be offered to waitlisted campers.
If you are applying for a church or Diocesan scholarship you must send in a completed Scholarship Application (found below).
Without receipt of the completed form, you will be responsible for all
fees owed before June 1st, or be subject to losing your camper’s
Additional Financial Assistance:Additional
financial assistance is also available based on need. The hope is that
1/3 of the camp fee would be met by the family, 1/3 met by the local
congregation, and 1/3 met by the Diocese. However, again, the idea is
shared responsibility. If your family is able to pay $100, great. If you
can pay $50, great. If you can pay $20, great. If you can pay $5,
great. Do what you are able to do to share the responsibility.
No child is ever turned away from St. Crispin’s because of their financial situation.
2019 St. Crispin's Summer Camp Scholarship Application
Cancellations made at least 14 days prior to the start of a
session will receive a full refund; after that, the $100 deposit is
It should be clearly understood that no refund will be issued for
campers who do not complete a session, whether it be for illness,
injury, homesickness, behavior, or other reason for going home early.
Letters**: Kids don’t often get letters these days
and it is a very special experience for them to receive mail at Camp.
Send a cheerful note to your camper mentioning how proud you are of them
being at Camp. Avoid mentioning how sorely you miss them (can cause
homesickness). Make sure you send your mail early enough that it arrives
while your camper is still at Camp!

**Do not send food/candy to your camper. It will be confiscated and disposed of by their counselor. Food/candy in the cabins can lead to bugs.
Email: The other option is
to send your camper an email note. While not as special as a physical
letter, emails are a quick way to let them know you are proud of them.
Send Camper Emails To: StCrispinsCamperEmail@gmail.com
Calling Home: Campers do not have access to phones. If a problem comes up, the Summer Camp Director will call you.
In case of an emergency, you may call (405) 382-1619.
Each session has a Medical Volunteer (EMT, LPN, R.N., P.A., N.P., or
M.D.) that oversees all aspects of the medical care given to campers.
Our Summer Staff are all certified in First Aid & CPR.
We will notify parents/guardians of illness or injury needing offsite care.
Each session is led by our Summer Staff and Session Staff.
The Summer Staff are college-aged young men and women committed to
living in the cabins and providing the camp experience all summer long.
They undergo background and reference checks before being hired and
receive over a week of training. Most are former St. Crispin's campers
themselves, so they know what it's like to go Camp for the first time.
Training topics span things like child development, abuse awareness and
prevention, lifeguarding, first aid & CPR, dealing with
homesickness, facilitating small groups, and handling problems. The
Summer Staff are the superheroes of Camp. They are the ones getting to
know every camper and making sure that each camper is having a great
week. It is often the case that many years later campers continue to
remember the impact their counselors made.
The Session Staff go through background and reference checks. Some help to do behind-the-scenes setup and
cleanup, as well as engaging with the campers. Others serve the special
roles of Dean and Chaplain. Along with the Chaplain, the Deans take the
summer theme and expand on it the daily spiritual program and family
Also a part of the Session Staff is the Medical Volunteer. The
Medical Volunteer is a licensed medical professional (EMT, LPN, R.N.,
P.A., N.P., or M.D.) who oversees all aspects of healthcare for the
Camp. They run the Infirmary and handle general scrapes and booboo’s.
CITs are high-school-aged youth who have applied and been selected to
participate in the Counselor in Training (CIT) program. Many are
campers who are eager to learn about the behind-the-scenes of Camp. They
stay in the cabins under the guidance of the Summer Staff.
Two staff members live in each cabin and share it with as many as 12
campers each week. The bunk-beds have cubby storage space for each
camper. And while some of our camp alumni will harken back to the glory
days and say the kids have it too easy now—the cabins are air
First time campers are often not quite sure what they need to or
should pack for Camp. It is a tough balancing act between not having
what you need to be prepared, and bringing too much that ends up being
unnecessary. There is no end-all, be-all list of what to pack, but we
have provided a list below that should help you think about what your
camper might need. You and your camper are the final judges.
Click below to see a recommended list of what to bring and what NOT to bring to camp!
St. Crispin’s is not responsible for your camper’s items. We will do
everything within reason to make sure your camper packs all items they
brought to Camp. Anything left behind will be kept for 2 weeks after
your camper’s session. Should you contact us about lost & found
items within that timeframe, we can arrange to return those items to you
at your cost.
Weather is constantly monitored and appropriate
safety precautions are taken when bad weather moves in. If it’s just
rain, we put on our ponchos and Camp keeps happening. When there is
lightning, activities happen under the safety of shelter. In the event
of severe weather, campers are relocated to the onsite safe room.
