Summer Season

Washington Family Ranch is planning a safe, fun and amazing camp for Summer 2021! 

Local Operating Procedures to Keep You Safe!  ​

Are you ready?

Each summer, thousands of middle and high school students come to Washington Family Ranch for a week of high adventure and a chance to consider a relationship with God in the breathtaking high desert of Central Oregon.

Since 1999, students from around the country have been coming with their local Young Life groups and leaders to have a great time with each other, eat delicious food, and make lasting memories. They meet new friends, try new activities, and hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ presented in a clear and relevant way.
Washington Family Ranch is ready for your arrival!  Young Life camp was designed with you in mind and there’s no end to the number of fun things to do.  From shooting down the 50’ drop on the “Big Muddy” waterslide at Creekside, to losing your stomach on “the Screamer” at Canyon, you can count on high adventure at Washington Family Ranch!
And if that is not enough ... there are other great surprises and activities ... but we don't want to spill the beans! Let's just say there is much, much more!
For some down-time, there are plenty of places around camp with shaded benches, deck chairs, and great views of the canyon for unwinding.
The camp gift shops have T-shirts, books, and souvenirs. At the snack bars, we offer cold drinks, coffee drinks, ice cream, pretzels, candy bars and more!

For Summer 2021, camp will look different. There will be masks, screening, distancing, cohorts and a lot of extra space, but it'll absolutely be the "best week of your life!" 

In the summer, our camps are full of middle and high school kids from Young Life areas all over the northwest. If a week at a Young Life camp sounds exciting to you, contact your local area office to find out how to sign up.

Camp Memories

Nick's talks were by far the best talks I've ever heard.
The most meaningful thing this week was cabin time, just talking to friends about struggles in my life.
I learned that I needed to let go of my fears and trust Christ.
My experience at camp was so good, I dunno what could have made it better.
This was the best week of my life...for real.


Young Life and Washington Family Ranch maintain the highest level of safety and standards in operation of all of our activities at camp.

All of Washington Family Ranch’s challenge course elements (ropes course, climbing walls, zip lines and swing) are inspected annually by our designated Professional Vendor Member under the current ACCT and/or ASTM standards. In addition, Young Life employs certified operators who perform daily, weekly, monthly and quarterly inspections of all course elements. All elements are supervised and operated by our trained staff, ensuring your child’s comfort and safety.

Washington Family Ranch's skate park, canyon cars and waterfront program is also facilitated by trained and experienced staff. Your child will be in good hands while at Washington Family Ranch.

In the event of an unexpected accident, there is always a qualified medical professional on call to tend to your child's needs.
