Thanks again to all those who contributed to the success of our winter fundraiser last holiday season!!!  We have all been enjoying the new dining hall chairs and entrance sign that your generosity provided for our entire community. We also raised a sizable amount towards a new camp tractor.

For all those who are interested in making a tax deductible charitable donation to Camp Adams during this year’s season of giving, we have identified the following needs:


Stainless Steel Paper Towel Dispensers

In an effort to standardize the paper towel dispensers across the site and to resource paper products that come from environmentally and socially responsible vendors we have started to replace the paper towel dispensers throughout camp. We ask for your help in completing this project! A $45.00 donation will buy one paper towel dispenser and help us run a more efficient and responsible camp organization!


Cabin Water Heaters

The water heaters across the site are aging and, in some cases, failing. New more energy efficient water heaters will make more responsible use of our resources, reduce the chances of water damage in camp buildings, and provide for guest comfort! A donation towards this need will indeed be a win, win, win!


Hydraulic Log Splitter

In order to turn natural blow downs and thinned timber into firewood for the fireplaces and campfires of Camp Adams, we find ourselves in need of a log splitter. A donation towards a log splitter would be an investment in a piece of equipment that, when properly maintained, would serve the Camp Adams community for years to come.


Camp Tractor Fund– We are a third of the way there!!!!!

Thanks in large part to the Smyrna, UCC congregation we were able to raise approximately 33.333% of the cost. We challenge all of you to help us get closer if not exceed our $30,000.00 goal to purchase a new tractor!


All checks should be made payable to the Central Pacific Conference, UCC. Please make note in the memo line of your check that you are donating to Camp Adams and if you’d like the money to be designated for the purchase of any of the above items. Checks can be mailed to the conference office in Portland: 0245 SW Bancroft Street, Suite E, Portland, OR 97239.
