Episcopal Camp and Retreat Center
A sanctuary promoting spiritual growth,
education, and fellowship
Camps, Retreats & Adult Programs
Galilee’s summer camping program helps youth develop deep relationships with their peers, caring counselors, the natural world and God. Campers are placed in Adventure Groups, a boys cabin and a girls cabin combined, with others the same age and are led by a resident staff person and two counselors. The Adventure Groups spend the week together kayaking on Lake Tahoe, rock climbing, camping out under the stars, making music and art, and much more! Galilee’s counselors and staff undergo a selective application process, including an in-depth background check, as well as a ten day Staff/Counselor training program.
Galilee offers a gorgeous space and warm hospitality for your group of 12 – 64 people to come together, grow closer, and return home rejuvenated. Galilee considers meals an opportunity to be intentional about our health, wellness, and our impact on the environment. Home-cooked meals made with care and quality ingredients taste better, are more nutritious and are more fulfilling to prepare. Come breathe in the fresh air and discover what’s possible for your group and community while we take care of you!
Galilee offers a variety of retreat programs for adults including Body, Mind, and Soul in April, the Galilee Women’s Retreat over Labor Day Weekend, and a retreat for men called Awakening Man in August. These programs are supported by experienced facilitators to provide enriching experiences for retreat guests. Participants are empowered by the programs, nourished by the tasty and nutritious meals, and inspired by the beautiful scenery. Experiencing individual growth in a supportive community never felt so good.
“I LOVE the inclusion at camp. I love my boys having exposure to all types of people in the world while in such an environment of acceptance.”

Galilee is defined by a rich tradition of loving community, friendship and fun in the beautiful outdoors. Set in one of the most incredible examples of God’s creation, the camp and retreat center is located on stunning waterfront property at Lake Tahoe. Galilee is owned by the Episcopal Diocese of Nevada and managed by on-site staff in cooperation with the Galilee Board of Trustees, St. John’s in the Wilderness Episcopal Church, and the Diocese.
