Summer Camp 2021…

Lately, planning has felt like nailing Jell-o to a tree, blindfolded, while herding feral kittens! We are happy to share that overnight camps have been approved! We have received the OHA guidelines and are working to modify operations to keep campers safe. We recommend that anyone is eligible to be vaccinated, please do so prior to camp. (Counselors, teen volunteers, kitchen workers, pastors, etc.) The more folks that can be vaccinated, the better! Please complete the REGISTRATION and send to: Drift Creek Camp, 22455 Finn Rd., Sheridan, OR 97378.  (Sign up campers for the camp grade that they are in currently or will be finishing this 2020/2021 school year.) Parents, please EITHER send full payments now or bring to camp at registration to be collected on-site. If you want to pay by credit card, please send that information or call the office at 971-600-1244. Because DCC’s internet access is limited, it is difficult to process credit cards on-site. Please come with a check payable to Drift Creek Camp or provide credit card information on the registration form. This will speed up the process which will be slower than usual with the addition of Covid screenings.

We are modifying the schedule and operations to make camp as safe as possible. After a hard year with the loss and chaos that Covid has caused, it seems that now, more than ever, our kids NEED camp! So we ask for your prayers, patience and flexibility. The green light has been given and we are moving forward. Our desire is to give campers our very best! Please don’t hesitate to ask questions by email (info@driftcreek.org) or by phone at 971-600-1244.

In addition to state guidance, Drift Creek Camp is located on Federal land. Masks will be required. Campers will be grouped in cohorts. Social distancing will be implemented and we will attempt to conduct meals and activities outside when possible. Like you, we are eager for the return of normalcy. Our hope is that being back at Drift Creek will be restorative for campers, counselors and volunteers of all ages!

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.
