Summer Camp 2023
Plans are in the works for the upcoming Summer Camp season! With a rich tradition of providing programs for youth for more than 60 years, our hope is to honor the legacy established by camp’s founders in the early 1960s. We strive to make Drift Creek Camp programs be an enriching experience for kids of all ages. Our hope is that the camp experience will foster wonder, where relationships will be nurtured, where community will be built and where youth feel supported in their journey towards faith. We want DCC to feel like a comfy home away from home and where we all have a place at the table!
We are seeking to build a team of creative young adults who are passionate about working together to put kids first and provide a meaningful experience for campers! If you are interested in this opportunity to unplug from technology, explore nature, build your leadership skills, laugh until it hurts, star gaze, get crafty, splash in the creek, work hard/play hard, hike on the daily, sing around the campfire, eat too many carbs, and fall asleep each night feeling both satisfied and exhausted, then perhaps this opportunity is for you! Each year, it is amazing to witness the depth of community that is built among the summer staff in just a few short weeks. We’d love to have you be part of it! Apply here!

We recognize that family schedules do not always line up with summer camp programs. If your child needs to attend a camp week different from that which is scheduled, please just let us know. We are happy to accommodate your child and will try to group them with cabin-mates closest to your camper’s age.
The 2023 brochure is coming soon….. for now, here’s a peak at last year’s:
Welcome to Drift Creek Camp:
Drift Creek is a place where Christian values of caring for and sharing with each other in daily life can be experienced. DCC is rooted in the Anabaptist tradition and operated by the Mennonite Camp Association of Oregon, Inc., and is a member of the Mennonite Camping Association (MCA) and Christian Camp and Conference Association (CCCA). We are located in a temperate rainforest that speaks eloquently of God’s handiwork and beautiful creation.
