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impact over the next 75 years, it has become abundantly clear that we must address our greatest current shortcomings: outdated facilities and insufficient staffing to meet current and future goals.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

Other Ways to Contribute​ ...

Did you know we expanded our property and bought a house? Thanks to some generous investors, this beautiful property was purchased for CAW to use as a MUCH-NEEDED Administration Building. Now comes the fun part - buying out the investors! Will you help us raise $600,000 in the next 5 years so we can call it 100% ours?

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.

What we've accomplished...

This new-to-us space will serve as private Administrative Offices and Meeting Space for the hard-working Camp Arrah Wanna Staff. 

What is currently our Main Office will transition into a Guest Reception Office, complete with the Camp Store! 

Having private offices set apart from Main Camp will give our staff the peaceful and functional space we have needed for SO LONG!
