We are a year-around facility nestled at the base of the Oregon Coast Range and surrounded by 160 wooded acres. Whether you are attending one of our programmed events or you are hosting one of your own, our aim is to provide a place where you feel like you are coming home. It is our privilege to come alongside and work with you to have a safe and successful experience.
The vision for Camp Tapawingo began in 1953 when a 160 acre parcel with a lodge was purchased. Intended to be used for Christian camping, it was open just 5 months of the year. In 1975 a full-time manager was hired and it began operating as a year-round camp and retreat center. We are affiliated with the NABNW association, and members of these churches have given years of volunteer hours and support to keep Camp Tapawingo moving forward. Camp Tapawingo INC. is operated by a Board of Directors and is a non-profit, 501c3 Corporation. We are active members of the Christian camp and Conference Association.
Camp Tapawingo exists to prepare people to be disciples of Christ by providing a quiet, peaceful and natural environment to develop and strengthen guests in their physical, spiritual, personal and social relationships, so that they are better enabled to be positive influences in society. We are a Christian camp dedicated to living out our faith in Jesus Christ through service to our guests.
