Waitts Lake Camp History Print E-mail


Waitts Lake Camp was purchased from Herb and Carol Gunderson in 1988. They started it as a private Christian camp and wanted it to remain as a Christian camp.

When the Open Bible Churches of Eastern Washington District purchased it from the Gundersons there was only the manager's home, a smaller chapel, and a mens and ladies shower house. There were also 12 RV sites complete with underground water & electricity, and an open air Chapel with just a roof and a sawdust floor.


After the camp was purchased the chapel was enclosed, and a large commercial 1200 square foot kitchen was added. The next project was to build a two story dormitory that houses 144 persons. The 22 rooms are carpeted, each with its own restroom and shower. Eighteen of the rooms are furnished with bunkbeds and four rooms have two twin beds.


Several acres of trees and brush were cleared to plant grass, and a sprinkler system was added later. Shrubs and flowers now border the pathways.


A nice maintenance building, two more smaller dorms and a gate to the front entrance were the next projects. The newest addition to the camp is a 10,000 quare foot Activity Center that can be used as both a meeting area and a recreational center.


The camp consists of a total of 100 acres for hiking and wildlife viewing.
