Welcome to Camp Koinonia

Located in Central Washington, Camp Koinonia is surrounded by the Cascade Mountains with 111 acres to explore.

With a rich history of campers, retreaters, camp staff, volunteers and donors, Camp Koinonia provides guests with a unique experience in the woods. Surrounded by 111 acres of tall pines and towering mountains, Koinonia offers a rustic hideaway with several perks.

Some of our site attractions include a heated swimming pool, pond for funyaks and fishing, full service dining hall, fire pits, horse stables, a yurt, and miles of hiking trails. When it comes to putting your head to the pillow, we offer indoor sleeping accommodations for 144 guests in heated buildings. We have recently remodeled almost every building with new bunks and mattresses. We have a retreat center with games and a large living area. We have two large meeting spaces where we eat and where several groups meet for worship or quilting!

One of the greatest aspects of camp is the staff. Our God loving, fun having, energetic staff will meet the needs of your group. Whether it be an early morning coffee run, a quick fix, setting up an outdoor movie, or helping meet a dietary restriction need, we are here to serve you and we will bend over backwards to make sure you have everything you need.

This camp is God’s camp and we welcome all non-profit groups to utilize our facilities and make it a home away from home for a week, weekend, or summer camp experience!
