Tuttle at a Glance

Camp Tuttle is a ministry of the Episcopal Diocese of Utah. We serve an increasingly diverse community of groups and individuals seeking connection and restorative experiences in nature. Tuttle has been in operation as a summer camp since 1958 and is open to all. We welcome more than 500 guests annually to our “little corner of the world.”

Our Mission: Camp Tuttle is a positive and inclusive learning environment that celebrates spiritual enlightenment in the outdoors.


Campers and counselors work to create a safe place to challenge comfort zones, societal norms, thinking patterns, and understanding of the life and world around them.


Camp Tuttle provides a safe space for spiritual, environmental, social, and personal transformation. We provide abundant opportunities to connect with self, others, nature, and the Divine.


Mountain peaks and rushing rivers root us deeply to God and call for action in protecting, sustaining, and nurturing the creation for which we are all responsible

Where You'll Find Us

 You’ll often find us at our historic campus nestled in Big Cottonwood Canyon near Brighton, UT. About 30 miles from Salt Lake City, our campus is surrounded by a beautiful glacial bowl of glassy lakes and pebble bottom streams, teeming with broad-beamed virgin timber and fields of incredibly lush wildflowers. Throughout the school year, we also host events at local congregations in the Salt Lake Valley. 

At Camp Tuttle, we embrace youth and families from a variety of backgrounds - embracing the diversity of Creation in our participants experiences of age, ability, race, language, sexual orientation, and gender backgrounds. We strive to create a fully inclusive culture and environment that values equality and fosters respect for all people. We understand Christian spirituality as a shared journey from which no one should be excluded. In alignment with our values, vision, and mission, Camp Tuttle welcomes all people as guests and full participants in our programs. We are committed to ensuring connection and inclusion among participants, staff, and administrators by adhering to loving accountability practices. We acknowledge that the pursuit of justice toward justice is an ongoing learning process and that we always have room to grow and extend our hospitality.
