75th Anniversary

In May 2022, we invite you and your family to return to your camp family, rekindle friendships, and reminisce during a special 75th anniversary luncheon at The George Mercer School of Theology in Garden City. We will celebrate the rich history of Camp DeWolfe, by looking back as we share stories and memories of the role camp has played in our lives. We look forward to the ways God will continue to use Camp DeWolfe in the lives of future generations of campers of all ages at Camp DeWolfe! Happy 75th Birthday Camp DeWolfe! Please check back soon for registration and details. 

As part of Camp DeWolfe’s 75 years of ministry celebration, the goal will be to raise $75,000 to go green with energy efficient LED lighting and to establish a permanent endowment fund. There is limited edition 75 year camp merchandise available here, where all profits will go towards these goals. Some of the limited edition Items include 75 year logo t-shirts, 75 year logo sweatshirts, 75 year logo backpacks and 75 year logo mugs. Please also join in by contributing $75, $750 or $7500 for 75 years to this 75 year celebration here.  

We want to hear from you, whether or not you can join us in May 2022. Please send us your camp story and photos so we can post them at Camp DeWolfe and on our anniversary slideshow. Please send them to office@campdewolfe.org anytime. 

On May 4th 2019, Camp DeWolfe’s 5th benefit luncheon welcomed guests from Brooklyn, Queens, Nassau and Suffolk counties, joining together the body of Christ, to invest in this youth and young adult ministry.  Over ninety guests – camper families, alumni, campers, board members, and parishioners from many parishes in the Episcopal Diocese of Long Island participated in the annual celebration. The event was sponsored by Episcopal Ministries of Long Island. 

Guests enjoyed a Silent Auction of gifts from the camp’s local guests, staff and vendors. A presentation included speeches by the Board Vice-President, David Cannon of St Mark’s Church, Islip, Board member, David Asher of Christ Church, Oyster Bay,  and the Bishop of the Diocese of Long Island, the Right Reverend Lawrence Provenzano. Bishop Provenzano thanked everyone for their mission to young people both through camp ministry and in their parishes and reminded all of the call to love God and love people across the entire Diocese which includes over 7 million residents. Matt Tees, the Camp’s Executive Director, shared a word of thanks to all, for their generosity and stewardship, which allows every child to attend camp, through the camper scholarship funds available. The 2019 benefit luncheon raised over $22,500 in support of the ministry Camp DeWolfe.
