Peace Camp 2023

August 7-9

Join your Peace family for a wonderful time of fellowship, fun, and adventure as we camp together!  This year’s theme will be Christ, Our Rock.  Enjoy hearing testimonies, singing Psalms and Hymns around the fire, and spending time in the Word together.  We will also share in several nature activities, group games, and (of course) our annual Peace Variety Show!

Beacon Rock
Group Camp,
Skamania, WA

This year, Peace Camp will be a little closer to home.  We are hopeful that being nearer will enable those who are unable to camp to come join us for a day or an evening campfire!

The group camp is situated on a very large grass meadow and can accommodate up to 200 campers.  Tents can be pitched anywhere on the meadow.  There are also spaces for RV’s (no hookups), and two Adirondack-style (three-sided) sleeping shelters with built-in bunk beds. There is a covered picnic area, as well as a rustic kitchen building with electricity and potable water.  Though there are no showers in the group site, guests are allowed to use showers in the main campground.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does Peace Camp Cost Money?

There is no fee for Peace Camp, however a Discover Pass is required to enter the park for any day visitors.  Day passes can be purchased online or at the park entrance.  Those who RSVP to stay overnight will not need a Discover Pass.  Please see Melissa upon arrival to receive your camp site parking pass.

Do I Need to RSVP?

RSVP’s are strongly suggested to help us plan and prepare supplies accordingly.  The Camp Ground also requests an accurate number of overnight guests to be given to them upon our check in.  Last minute campers will not be turned away, but please see Melissa upon arrival as we may need to update our reservation or request additional passes.

Is Food Provided?

Peace will provide light snacks on Monday afternoon and on Wednesday morning.  We will also provide basic S’mores supplies for the group campfires.  Please bring meal supplies for your family, and allergy-friendly s’mores supplies, if required.

What Amenities are There?

The group camp has a kitchen/dining building with potable water and electricity, an outdoor covered picnic area with tables and grills, four vault toilets, two fire pits, and two Adirondack-style shelters with built-in bunk beds. There is space for RV’s, but no hookups are available.  There are no showers at the group camp, but campers may use the showers at the main campground if desired.

What Camping Equipment is Allowed?

There is plenty of space for tent camping across a very large meadow.  There is also room for a few RV’s (no hookups).  If you are interested in using the Adirondike-style shelters, please indicate that on the RSVP form.

What if I can Only Come for Part of the Time?

Great! Come for whatever part that you can.  There is space on the RSVP form to indicate which days or nights you plan to join us.

What is the Variety Show?

The Peace Variety show is a really lovely way to get to know each other and laugh heartily!  We will first feature any acts volunteered by our campers.  (In the past we have had poetry or scripture reciting, musical performances, comedy sketches, magic acts, etc!)  After these acts have concluded, we will have a time of hilarious audience participation games.  This year, our Jr. High and Highschoolers will be leading one of the games!

If you wish to volunteer an act for our show, please indicate that on the RSVP form or let Melissa know!
