Next CamasCon: November 1-5, 2018

Camas Meadows Bible Camp is hosting a CamasCon retreat for November 1-5 for board gaming enthusiasts to connect with one another and with God. Attendees are welcome to join us for a day, the weekend, or the extended experience from Thursday through Monday.

During this retreat, there will be options for RPG sessions, a Cube Draft, and the Annual Settlers of Catan Tournament, with prizes. Once again, we will be raffling off games to raise support for the Camas Meadows Scholarship Fund, enabling kids to attend summer camp regardless of means, and the Hands and Feet Children’s Home in Haiti, serving some of the neediest children on the planet. Fall weather will be transitioning to early winter, a beautiful time to enjoy a brisk hike between games. There’s even a chance we might glimpse the first snowfall of the year from the comfort of the camp lodge.

We welcome you to join us around the table for games, food & fellowship!

CamasCon—Connecting with games, other gamers and with God.
Camas Meadows hosts three gaming retreats each year: usually in early November, late March/early April and late July. CamasCon is a full weekend of playing games, meeting other gamers, and an opportunity for spiritual growth & renewal. Check out the latest game releases or enjoy a classic design with friends, new or old. If you have an interest in board gaming, in following Jesus Christ, or both, we invite you to a weekend of great food, fellowship and friendly competition at CamasCon. Camas Meadows Bible Camp is a non-profit, non-denominational organization located in the beautiful Cascade Mountains. The log-cabin lodge is a comfortable place to learn, teach and play games, and the atmosphere is fun, friendly and welcoming to new gamers.

Spring CamasCon, March 22-26, 2018

Fall CamasCon, November 2 – 6, 2017

Summer CamasCon, July 28-30, 2017

This was a small, but fun weekend of gaming that brought in some new people to the CamasCon experience. Tim “Keebler” Whitney challenged and encouraged us during to avoid idols, including gaming ones, and to reach out to others through our gaming.

Spring CamasCon, March 23-27, 2017

Our second extended length retreat was our largest CamasCon yet, with 57 people coming for at least part of the weekend. The speaker, Chris “Van Helsing” Weedin brought incredibly relevant and meaningful teaching. Another RPG session run by the Fishers was a hit. And the gaming food & fellowship was great, as always.

Fall CamasCon, November 3-7, 2016

What a great weekend of gaming and fellowship! We had 54 attendees, some of whom took advantage of the extra days Thursday and Monday. Rob Anderson taught on the image of Christ, peace and peacemaking. We were blown away by the generosity of our guests as the game raffle raised over $800 to split between the Camper Scholarship fund and the Hands and Feet Children’s home in Haiti.

Popular games for the weekend included Scythe, Cry Havok, Clank! , and Gold West. Several excellent RPG sessions were prepared and lead by Michael & Kaely Fisher. The longer weekend plus daylight savings allowed more time for conversing, beautiful autumn hikes and, of course, extra games.  Steven Whitham reclaimed his Catan Champion title for the 5th time:
