*In 2022, the camp suffered damages from the Hermit's Peak Calf Canyon Wildfire. Due to the loss of a Forest Service bridge that provides road access into the camp, our ministry is currently experiencing about 1/3 of previous operations being limited to periods of low water flows which occur seasonally. We currently expect the bridge to be rebuilt in mid-late 2025. The camp normally provides housing on site, but will assist with housing off site until the bridge is rebuilt.
