August 26-28, 2022 at Camp Chickagami

Join us at Camp Naucratius, a weekend camp program filled with friends, family, fishing, and life-long memories.

This is the first (and hopefully annual!) Naucratius Family Camp! We’ll offer some programming, built-in free time, fishing, hiking, games, prayer and worship, and more. All planned activities for the weekend are no-pressure, allowing participants to join and and participate at their leisure. Children must be supervised at all times by their parents/guardians. One does not need to be an Episcopalian or an expert angler to join us for Camp Naucratius!

The Order of Naucratius is a community and network of hunters and anglers engaging in the spiritual practice of sharing our harvested abundance with neighbors experiencing hunger. Learn more about the Order, a recognized cooperating ministry of Western Michigan with leadership and participants from both Eastern and Western Michigan, on their website,

Please contact the Rev. Christian Baron, Director of the Order of Naucratius, with any questions – or 512-826-9657.

In order to keep our community safe and healthy during this overnight event, all participants will be required to complete a rapid COVID test upon arrival and receive a negative result to proceed to their lodging. Tests will be provided by our hosts. Thank you for your understanding and patience!
