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impact over the next 75 years, it has become abundantly clear that we must address our greatest current shortcomings: outdated facilities and insufficient staffing to meet current and future goals.

Help by Hosting a Watch-Party on
People engage and participate in events more if they are invited personally to attend by someone they know and already love. This is why we are asking YOU to host an event and PERSONALLY INVITE people in your family and/or community to join you in “attending” our live-streaming event.
This will help us reach our Fall 2021 Fundraising goals, spread the word about Camp Arrah Wanna, increase our supporting audience, and grow God’s ministry in a fun and safe way!
This is where you can participate in CAW's Fall Fundraiser!
Videos about how much has been accomplished through CAW's Generations of Promise Campaign are posted below.

Capital Project: Remodel & Update Stearns Cottage
Interior updates: expansion of meeting space by moving front wall; replace existing bathrooms with utility/laundry closet; create ADA accessible bathroom ; create 2nd restroom & shower room where current kitchen is; create hallway and 4th bedroom where the current dining room sits; replace all windows & doors.
Exterior upgrades: demolish existing ramp & porch; build new covered porch extending from front around SE end of building; build new ADA accessible ramp & entrance; paint entire building; lay asphalt from porch/ramp out to road for parking & ease of access.
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.
