CamasCon—Connecting with games, other gamers and with God.
Camas Meadows hosts three gaming retreats each year: usually in early November, early April and late June. 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.

Last Retreat: 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:
