Tri-Diocesan Council on Aging Fall Camp
The Camp is an attempt to take seriously the spiritual needs and journeys primarily of 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 porches, visit with friends, relax, enjoy the amazing scenery, and to explore the surrounding area.

Aging is Changing – a congregational resource
A five–part program designed to be incorporated into the life of congregations. Prepared by the Episcopal Church Office for Lifelong Christian Formation and the Executive Council Taskforce on Older Adult Ministries, Aging is Changing was developed to help clergy and lay leaders identify issues of older adults, their families, and caregivers, and to identify existing local, state and national resources that might be helpful. It also includes best practices from 60 congregations around the Episcopal Church.
