Tall Timber Youth Camps

A Whitworth University Professor had THIS to say about Tall Timber...

Jerry Sittser, Whitworth University's Professor of Theology, had this to say about Tall Timber:

I can't think of a more beautiful and inspiring setting for a camp anywhere in the country.

I think this perfectly sums up what Tall Timber summer camps offer to kids of all ages. Between the beautiful and inspiring setting at Tall Timber, the chance to make lifelong friends while on an outdoor adventure, and our dedication to God and all that He has created, we hope your kids will join us this summer.

Only a few weeks left to book
