Campfire is in a beautiful wooded setting where we have our evening chapel.
The cross atop of the mountain can be seen from the log seating at the campfire meadow. Often deer will stroll through just as millions of stars begin to appear in the night sky.
There is never a dull moment at Camp Sawtooth. Campers will live, worship, play and pray together as part of a Christian community all in the surrounding of God's awesome creation. Friendships and memories are made that will last a lifetime.
