640 acres of trails, field, woods, and pond

This is a Lutheran kids camp that offers a place for families to come and camp. Sometimes there are family retreats planned where you can bring your tent or trailer and camp in designated campsites in a tranquil meadow. You don't have to be Lutheran, but you should be respectful of this special place. No alcohol. I grew up camping here with family friends. Later I worked here teaching outdoor education to gradeschoolers. There are over 640 acres of meadow, forest, and stocked pond. I'm not sure if it's still there, but there used to be a challenging obstacle course up a steep hill, over a wood wall with stations in the woods. It is a quick 5 minute drive to downtown Americana Oregon, Il and heads and tails more private and tranquil than White Pines State Park.
