​ABOUT US
Here's what you should know about Gwinwood........
Gwinwood Camp and Conference Center was founded in 1947 by the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) congregations in Western Washington. Their ownership continues to this day.

Gwinwood provides a place for groups and individuals to experience fellowship, learning, group building and spiritual growth in a peaceful lakeside setting. The grounds are nestled into a quiet setting along the waterfront of Lake Hicks, with a large lodge-style meeting hall, dormitory style cabins, and a fully inclusive retreat center along with plenty of outdoor space to play and explore.

Since its founding, Gwinwood has always been a place of welcome for people of all ages, beliefs (both of any religion and non-religious) and life experiences. Such is the welcoming nature of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) - a movement for wholeness in a fragmented world.

In addition to our own Disciples  programming, we proudly host groups with their own missions, including:

                      --Environmental education programming that teach young people about ecosystems and care for our planet
                      --Sacred space for congregations of all faiths  in need of extra space for special events
                      --Gathering and event space for eccumenical conversations and interfiath groups
                      --Retreats that support returning veterans and their families after deployment
                      --Meditation workshops for a variety of practices and religions
                      --Girl Scouting and Boy Scouting meetings, camping and ceremonies
                      --Meeting space for support groups working with  addiction recovery
