Open House! Come Celebrate Ortoha's 74th Year!

What? You didn’t know that? Perhaps you’re thinking, “How can this be? I’ve never even heard of this camp. What is this camp? What’s it all about? I need to know more!”

Well, you’re in luck because one of North Central Washington’s “best kept secrets” is hosting an open house!

You are invited to visit camp on Saturday, June 22nd. Come on up, check out the grounds and facilities, and perhaps you’ll be enticed to get involved - maybe even this year - with this local youth ministry.

The best way to get there is as follows:

  • Head to Tonasket turning right onto the highway 20 heading to Republic

  • Travel about 20 miles and take the Bonaparte Lake Resort turn-off [left turn]

  • Travel past the resort till you come to a “Y” at the Beth/Beaver Lake junction staying to the left

  • Travel about 6-8 miles from there, past the Big Tree Botanical site, coming to a “T”, turn left and in about a mile, the sign for Lutheran Camp Ortoha will be on the left

  • If you reach the entrance to the Lost Lake Campground, you’ve gone too far!

Hope to see you there! Please, if possible, RSVP to Brian Bowes, the Director of Ortoha Youth Camp, by Tuesday, June 18th. You can either email: or call 429.1567.

The Camp still has the following needs for their 2019 Season:

  • Grade School Camp – July 28-Aug 1:

    • Girl counselors – 2 must be at least going into 10th grade

  • Middle School Camp – Aug 4-8

    • Need one camp speaker to present four 1-hour presentations – one per day. This year’s theme is: “Grow @ Ortoha.” Simply put, sharing the Gospel and the salvation story

    • Counselors – 3 boys, 4 girls…they should be at least going into the 11th grade
