Mission

The mission of Camp Koinonia is to provide a Camp environment for family and personal renewal. Camp Koinonia, Inc. has been providing families from all over the United States a week-long Catholic retreat in the Finger Lakes region of NYS. We believe that families grow closer together when provided with spiritual guidance and faith-filled exercises in a beautiful camping environment, free from the distractions of the Internet as well as the demands of everyday life. Our goal is to draw people closer to Christ through strengthening their family bonds. Since 1983, we’ve served approximately 40 families each summer to help them de-stress and deepen their bonds with each other and with God, and we hope to continue our mission for generations to come.

Camp Koinonia, Inc. has been providing families from all over the United States a week-long Catholic retreat in the Finger Lakes region of NYS. We believe that families grow closer together when provided with spiritual guidance and faith-filled exercises in a beautiful camping environment, free from the distractions of the Internet as well as the demands of everyday life. Our goal is to draw people closer to Christ through strengthening their family bonds.

We are working to increase our funding support for the programs through several revenue streams: fundraising, rentals, and sharing of natural resources.

Since 1983, weve served approximately 40 families each summer to help them de-stress and deepen their bonds with each other and with God, and we hope to continue our mission for generations to come. Our Board of Directors is made up of 14 volunteers who work joyfully and tirelessly to serve our community. Our seasonal staff of six take care of our buildings and grounds as well as cook for our campers in the kitchen. We also provide stipends to our weekly program leaders including Spiritual and Program Directors.

Numbers each summer have ebbed and flowed with a low during 2020 and we are working to rebuild the number of families attending and served by our program.
