WNW began summer operations in 1980 after several years of planning & prayer for a Christian camp ministry on the Olympic Peninsula. The non-denominational, non-profit camp is located 2 miles up the Duckabush River Road on 15 acres of forested land with an additional 40 acres available for hiking trails, recreation & outdoor studies.
Hello! My name is Alan Reimann and I have had the honor and privilege of being named the new director of Wilderness Northwest. It has been a strange mix of excitement and sadness this past summer, to step into a role that was so wonderfully filled by my father-in-law, Jody Weed. For close to 40 years, Jody invested his heart into creating a facility where families and church groups could go to get away from the distractions of life and to connect with each other and with our Amazing Creator. It is my desire to continue this mission and grow the ministry of Wilderness Northwest as God leads us into the future.
WILDERNESS NORTHWEST began with the directorship of Jody Weed and his family who lives adjacent to camp. “My desire is to give whatever I can to produce a quality camp facility and program that people will enjoy, and that the Creator/Savior is revealed in teachable moments for our children, family, and non-believing friends to experience.”
Our Goal: Is to encourage campers towards creative use of time and activities, to stimulate awareness of one another’s needs and potential, to affirm the Lordship of Christ and to restore a hunger and thirst for God’s Word.
Our Mission: When Jesus told his disciples to “come away by yourselves to a secluded place and rest awhile” (Mark 6:31), he was establishing the principles of a camp retreat.
There is a need for God’s people to temporarily enter a different living environment for rest, recreation, and restoration. Wilderness Northwest exists to meet that need and also to provide an outdoor classroom to “consider” the wonders of our Creator and the life changing teachings of our Savior, Jesus Christ. The battle for truth began in the Garden of Eden and continues at WNW in our mission to promote the authority of God’s Word and history of beginnings as revealed in Genesis 1-11.
