Visit a Sacred Treasure of Oregon - Wallowa Lake Camp


Wallowa Lake United Methodist Camp is located in Northeast Oregon at the base of the majestic Wallowa mountains. It has access via tram or hiking and horseback trails to the famed Eagle Cap Wilderness.

Wallowa Lake Camp Director Peggy Lovegren invites individuals, families, and groups to come make memories while relaxing and rejuvenating.
This camp is for all ages. It was designed with both deluxe cabins (with private baths and linens) and more rustic accommodations to include families and adult groups along with youth and children.
It is their ministry to offer a “Sacred space of Christian hospitality and learning” with excellent hospitality, clean cabins, delicious meals and gorgeous surroundings.
Included in your stay is a 24-hour lodge with hot beverage bar, cozy fireplace, games, puzzles, common areas, campfire circle, sacred spaces, babbling creek (kids love to play in it), swings, volleyball, basketball and gaga ball, table tennis, horseshoes, tepees, grassy fields and more.
Let them do the cooking. Delicious, plentiful meals are available for groups with a minimum of 10 guests, and sometimes individuals can “add on” if there is another group at camp ordering meals.
Walking distance from the camp is beautiful Wallowa Lake with swimming, boating and fishing. Nearby there are hiking trails, horseback riding, miniature golf, famous mountain tram, ice cream, gift shops, go-carts, restaurants and more.  In the charming town of Joseph just six miles away, one can spend the day at art galleries, museums, the bronze foundry tour, riding the rails, Joseph Art Center, retail shops, coffee shops, farmers market, pubs and restaurants. All of these are on land that is seen as sacred by the Nez Perce (Nimiipuu) people and part of their traditional homeland.

Why Volunteer at Wallowa Lake Camp?

Come join the fun! Stay in beautiful motel-style rooms in the Henderson Volunteer Center, enjoy delicious meals (if they’re serving a group) and take time to play in the Wallowas!

Volunteering gives life purpose, lowers stress, and is a place to meet new friends while sharing skills and learning new ones.
Wash dishes, pick up branches, clean cabins, paint, stain, pull weeds, chop firewood, build fencing, plant trees, sweep, rake, wash windows, sew projects and more. Help make the world a better place and grow spiritually. They want you! Volunteers can come for a day, a weekend, a week, a month or all summer!
