What we've
​accomplished so far...

Thanks to our fabulous supporters, CAW was able to reach 122% of our Fall Fundraising goal!
~  $61,344 out of $50,000  ~


Because we have the desire to welcome ALL campers, we intentionally keep our rental and registration costs as low as possible. In order to carry forward the legacy of this special place and its program, we depend on generous financial donations and volunteer hours from our loyal supporters. Every capital project, camper scholarship, and a few operational elements are made possible by people who love this place enough to invest in its history and its future through their donations.

2021 Fall Fundraiser Success...

We are currently raising funds for the Stearns Cottage Remodel (see details below) through the 2022 Fun Run.

As we prepare for Summer Camp 2022, our CAW Scholarship Fund will definitely need some love as well!​

The Main Event was a BLAST!

Saturday, October 30th, we gathered virtually to celebrate how much has been accomplished through CAW's Generations of Promise Campaign. Please view the recording below...

What's next?

​This will help us tremendously in moving forward with the Stearns Remodel Project (pictures above).

We still have a LONG WAY TO GO...

So please consider donating TODAY!

For over 75 years, Camp Arrah Wanna has held a unique role in the life story of countless people throughout the Northwest. It has become an extraordinary place to meet and experience God, establish lifelong friendships, develop young leaders, and so much more. As we look ahead and consider how we might ensure an even greater impact over the next 75 years, it has become abundantly clear that we must address our greatest current shortcomings: outdated facilities and insufficient staffing to meet current and future goals. ​​
