Diocese to close lakeside camp

Print More

The state’s Roman Catholic diocese is closing its Tara-Holy Cross camp in Colchester.

But the church has not put the 26-acre lakeside land on the market.

Bishop Salvatore Matano cited rising costs and decreasing use as the reasons for the closing.

In a letter to church members, Matano says the camp, formerly called Camp Holy Cross, lost $103,000 last year.

It attracted just half the amount of campers that it could accommodate during the six-week season.
