Suttle Lake Camp turned 100 years old in 2023!  The longevity of the camp's ministry and the beauty of the site are due to the dedication of volunteers.  Over Memorial Day Weekend, join an amazing community of volunteers in preparing the camp for the summer season.  Our work is balanced with worship, singing, fellowship, and fun.  All skill levels of workers are welcomed. Come for the whole weekend or just as your schedule allows.  

You are encouraged to bring tools, painting supplies and cleaning supplies that you have at home. Please contact camp if you have special skills or tools that would be helpful in our planning.  

Please contact camp, if your family would be interested in a Children’s Program that would combine work projects, education, and recreation suitable for those in preschool and older. With enough interest appropriate leadership and activities will be arranged.  Parents are asked to be responsible for the overall supervision of their children.
