Originally established in 1955 as Camp PECUSA (Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States), the sugar plantation carved out this beachfront location and set it aside for the needs of the community. Operated by the Church, it was utilized for retreats and became a gathering place for groups and individuals (locally and from around the globe) who, over the years, continually found their way back to this special place.
In 1998, Olowalu Elua Associates (OEA) purchased 700 acres of the former sugar operations and expanded the area in which the Camp resides. They have made a commitment to continue the campground operations as a group retreat facility and camp related activities for visitors and its community. As of 2006 Camp Pecusa adopted its new name as Camp Olowalu. In 2015 the first phase of a new camping area opened. They introduced above ground Tentalows with modern facilities and surrounded it all with hundreds of fruit trees and native species.
