Are you looking for a camp to send your child to where they will learn, explore, and grow in faith? Where they will experience God’s love through the beauty of creation and the relationships they build with new friends and caring mentors? Where they will not only have fun, but also learn skills and values that will carry them forward through life? You’ve come to the right place.

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 sits on the eastern side of the Central Cascades where the vivid green of Western Oregon mingles with the sunny beauty of the East.
