Welcome to Selah

A private forested riverside camp designed for evangelical churches to enjoy God and His creation together!  Selah is open June through August on weekends only.

Selah offers a wide-variety of activities for your group. Click here to learn more.

What to bring

  • Camping stuff (shelter,bedding etc)
  • Food stuff (cooking & drinking)
  • Recreational stuff (field games &  rainy day games)
  • River stuff (tubes & air mats & river shoes)

When you arrive

Follow signs from the end of the paved road into Selah (see Map link on top menu).  If you are picnicking or just in for the day, park in the upper grass parking lot by the big 'Welcome To Selah' sign.  If you are camping, drive on into the forest through the double gates, down the hill, and select a vacant campsite situated on the loop road around the playing field.  A camp host will meet you there.

Camping Cost

All camping is by donation, and each church can decide how best to do that.  Some churches take an offering, some charge a per/family rate, and others pay out of their budget.  All donations received are used to maintain and improve Selah, and to assist with summer staffing.

Important rules

For the comfort of all campers, we have a no-pet policy.  Likewise, alcohol and smoking are not permitted, although puffing is allowed in your vehicle only in the upper parking area.  Due to noise restrictions we only allow small quiet generators.

The water is ok for cooking, but for drinking, we recommend boiling it first.   We advise you to bring your own drinking water.

Campers should be aware that there is no electricity.

Our river is great fun, but there are no lifeguards, and like everything at Selah, use it with care and at your own risk. 

Please drive carefully on access and campsite roads. There are numerous blind corners, and single lanes, along with occasional slow moving tractors and farm equipment! Stay below 30k/h.
