Retreats

In the shadow of Mount Rainier, Camp Arnold is surrounded by natural beauty — 670 acres of evergreens, meadows, wetlands and the peaceful waters of our private lake.  Camp Arnold is about an hour and a half drive south of Seattle, forty five minutes from Tacoma and Olympia and thirty minutes from Puyallup, located in rural Pierce County making us an ideal retreat setting. Whether you are planning a series of intense meetings, a time for relaxation and some outdoor fun, a Team Building course or an Outdoor Education experience Camp Arnold can be an ideal setting for you.

Even though major amenities are only a few minutes away, the camps grounds offer an atmosphere of seclusion — a get away from the daily routine and distractions.  Whether your needs are for a work retreat during the week, or a service club or church group retreat on the weekend, Camp Arnold is the place for you.  We can accommodate groups ranging in size from 35 people up to 350 people for overnight lodging, offer quality food services, and can prepare recreation, team building, and outdoor education experiences.

We have a quality staff to host your retreat or conference, and provide assistance in retreat planning.
