Summer Camp 2017
NOTE: We are no longer accepting applications for teen volunteers. Thank you for your support!
Any summer staff looking to extend their work schedule are encouraged to contact Saralyn and David Jantzi (509.548.7245) at our sister camp in Leavenworth, WA. CAMP CAMREC will have two camps immediately after DCC’s concludes.
The 2017 theme centers around parables of the Gospels, understanding that it takes listening and digging deeper to discover the treasures of the kingdom of heaven and learning to follow Jesus’ way.
Schedule modifications were made to accommodate snow days…

Interested in supporting the staff in a fun, behind-the-scenes way? We are looking for “Staff Buddies” who will “adopt” a counselor during summer programming. We are looking for folks to pray for staff members and send occasional notes of encouragement to boost morale when energy is depleted. Additionally, each year we welcome summer staff with a bag o’ fun! Would you be willing to supply items to share with staff? Counselors appreciate most anything, but things like gum, energy bars, nuts, stamps, lip balm, pens, paper, etc. are always appreciated! Finally, each day the summer staff gathers to hear announcements, to share joys & struggles. The short meeting provides the counselors with the opportunity to reflect, catch their breath and pray together. This is a great time to bless the staff and say thank you for their giant contributions! Do you have an abundance of garden produce? Fruit? Cookies? Snacks? (Seriously, these young adults are always hungry!) It is a delight to share gifts with the counselors and help them know that their work is appreciated.

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.
Sometimes planning doesn’t always work out the way you hope! Because we have several other programs coming in immediately following DCC’s camps, schedules were created two years ago! Little did we know then that schools would be faced with making up multiple snow days! We’ve come up with a solution that we hope works for most. Please keep in mind that we are flexible and if your child needs to attend a different week of camp because you already have family plans in place, we are happy to find another week for your child to enjoy camp. If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to contact email@example.com.
