Camp SAMBICA has been A Light on the Lake since 1919! Our mission is to Inspire Youth to a relationship with Jesus Christ.

Over the past 100+ years, SAMBICA has worked hard to achieve the current level of high quality programs that benefit our campers and the surrounding community. SAMBICA is no longer a remote camp nestled in the woods; it is now immersed in suburbia. SAMBICA's 30+ buildings are spread over 10 acres on the shores of beautiful Lake Sammamish in Bellevue, Washington 15 minutes from downtown Seattle.

SAMBICA offers youth summer camps and retreat ministries. SAMBICA provides both overnight camps, day camps, and a high school leadership program during the summer months. Approximately 130 college age staff members are hired each summer to run the camp operations in roles such as counselors, lifeguards, boat drivers, program, adventure, and kitchen staff. Nearly 3,000 children attend SAMBICA's summer camps each year, the majority coming from a non faith background.

During the fall, winter, and spring seasons SAMBICA serves other nonprofit organizations, schools, and churches through hospitality programs. SAMBICA's reputation for quality food, great customer service, and convenient location provide the perfect setting for reflection, relaxation, spiritual growth and team building.
