History & Mission


Originally established in 1955 as Camp PECUSA, the sugar plantation carved out this beachfront location and set it aside for the needs of the community. Operated by the Episcopal Church, it was utilized for retreats and became a gathering place for groups and individuals who, over the years, continually found their way back to this special place.

In 1998, Olowalu Elua Associates (OEA) purchased 700 acres of former sugar operations and with it the land on which the Camp resides. The new landowners have taken an in depth look at the campgrounds and its condition, they have made a commitment to continue the operations as a group retreat, provide additional camping areas as well as. As of 2006 Camp Pecusa adopted its new name as Camp Olowalu. In 2015 the first phase of the new camping area opened with six new above ground tentalow surrounded by new vegetation.


Our Mission is to provide individuals, families, and groups a destination alternative, where you enjoy the natural simplicity of an outdoor experience.

OEA has a commitment to maintain Camp Olowalu’s physical appearance and spiritual health as well as sharing the land, its history and cultural significance for generations to come.
