It’s difficult to picture a more picturesque location for a summer camp than the northern portion of the scenic Oregon Coast. Campers will enjoy a spectacular, private, mile-long lake along the eastern border of the camp and over a half-mile of pristine Pacific Ocean beach to the west. The dorms and facilities are among the best in the region, and the memories you make with your dormmates will be ones you cherish forever.
Campers and staff enjoy a variety of activities offered, and due to our location, most revolve around the water. Beach activities, such as volleyball, speedaway, skimboarding and boogie-boarding are always popular. Campers also enjoy kayaking on Smith Lake and waterskiing at Lake Lytle. But not all of our activities are in the water; we also have archery classes, softball, dance classes, arts and crafts and much, much more. The two dances during the week are always a highlight of the camp experience.
Christian living classes make up the core of each day’s spiritual instruction. Each of the activities, lessons and the evening campfire story is designed to build off the theme and help the campers understand the spiritual principles of the day’s lesson and how to apply them when they return home. This year, the focus of our theme is to encourage our youth to “Stand Strong” in their faith and in their relationship with God in the face of a world that is contrary to the way of God.
Each year at Northwest Camp, campers build friendships that will last a lifetime. These friendships will become more and more important as the world becomes more and more challenging. Our goal in the UYC program, and fostered by the incredible staff at Northwest Camp, is to establish and maintain a godly atmosphere in which campers can be enriched.
