SAMBICA, (the Sammamish Bible Camp Association, historically) began as a youth Bible Conference in 1919. Founded by members of the Swedish Tabernacle Church, SAMBICA is now a not-for-profit, non-denominational Christian camp and event center.
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. SAMBICAâ€™s 30+ buildings are spread over 10 acres on the shores of beautiful Lake Sammamish in Bellevue, Washington.
Today, 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 120 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 SAMBICAâ€™s summer programs 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. SAMBICAâ€™s reputation for quality food, great customer service, and convenient location provide the perfect setting for reflection, relaxation, spiritual growth and team building.
