About Us

Where is that special place where you encounter God?

For us, it’s Suttle Lake Camp. Come find God in the natural beauty and experience the growth and joy that comes from living in Christian community.

Nestled on the eastern slopes of the Cascade Mountains fourteen miles west of Sisters, Suttle Lake Camp is a special place where the vivid green of Western Oregon mingles with the sunny beauty of the eastern part of the state. 

Rich in plant and wildlife communities, Suttle Lake is a natural place to explore God’s creation and experience God’s love in a caring community. Suttle Lake Camp’s camping programs include events for both children and adults with options ranging from the classic Christian summer camp experience for kids to specialized programs such as quilting retreats for adults. In all programs, we strive to answer the question, “How will this experience create a community in which lives can be transformed by Christ?”  

We are committed to providing quality experiences and a safe environment. Suttle Lake Camp’s American Camp Association accreditation means that it annually undergoes a thorough (up to 300 standards) review of its operation and program with a keen eye for safety and quality.

Suttle Lake Camp believes that all people are children of God and provides radical hospitality to every person who comes.



The Central Oregon Cascades area is renowned for its sunny weather, mountain peak vistas, ponderosa pine forests, clear lakes and streams, and many year-round recreational opportunities.
