In 1959 a group of pastors in Eugene had a vision for a Bible camp for their kids. Lutheran Layman’s League of Lane County purchased 28 acres west of Junction City (off Hwy 36) to create the camp for Eugene area children and teens. Campers, along with their Pastor and other adult leaders, came to camp for a week and stayed in the only facility at the time–the barn. They wanted their youth to have an experience that deepened their faith in Jesus Christ, strengthened relationships with the other friends in the church, connected them to nature, and helped them discover their gifts to offer to the world–all while having fun and adventure.
Every summer since, campers have been discovering faith, friendship and fun at camp.
