Situated on a mile of Lake Whatcom waterfront southeast of Bellingham, WA, Camp Firwood has been the summer camp of choice for thousands of campers since 1955. Campers choose from a varied menu of activities including classics like sailing, kayaking, climbing, and crafts; along with newer favorites like wakeboarding, outdoor challenges, rock climbing, skateboarding, and paintball! What seems to draw campers back most, however, are the lasting friendships they make with other kids from all over the Northwest who just keep coming back to Firwood.
Campers get to hang out with the members of our Summer Staff, a group of energetic, caring, and dedicated high school and college age students. They are effective role models who live the message of Jesus Christ in practical ways.
A week at Camp Firwood is guaranteed to be packed full of fun, adventure, and memorable experiences! Camp Firwood is a ministry of The Firs.
The Firs and Camp Firwood serves the local church and community by drawing groups and individuals to a camp and retreat setting where they will experience the Biblical message of Jesus through instruction, creative activities and significant relationships, resulting in changed lives.
From its beginning, The Firs has focused on developing and maintaining a ministry to God’s glory. Primarily through offering Christ-centered camps, conferences and retreats, The Firs has sought to lead people to salvation in Jesus Christ, nurture Christian character, train individuals for worldwide Christian service, and strengthen family life.
