We will be meeting at Black Lake Bible Camp, 6521 Fairview Rd SW Olympia WA 98512.

Not only will delicious 'physical food' (biblically kosher) be offered, but a full Buffet of 'spiritual food' as well. Mornings will be filled with prayer, breakout sessions and dance workshops, as well as children's activities. On the afternoon of the High Days and the weekly Sabbath there will be a Worship Service, including a teaching, held in the 'Tabernacle' building at Black Lake Bible Camp, a 300 seat auditorium. The rest of the week, there will be ample time to enjoy what the camp has to offer. Evenings will bring special presentations from Jerusalem/Israel, Israeli Dance, as well as a time to share your musical talents in a community worship jam. So, practice your songs and bring your instruments. The highlight of the week is a Saturday night Variety Show. Everyone, young and old, is encouraged to prepare a skit, a song, a poem, etc. to present during this time.

Area Attractions

Tumwater Falls Park & Tumwater Historical Park meet at Tumwater Falls on the Deschutes River. Take a quarter mile walk on either side of the river to the lower falls. See salmon fish ladders built along the river’s edge, where Chinook & Coho move upstream to the fish hatchery in October and early November. Enjoy the woods and marshlands, the birds and wildlife and a view of the historic brick brew house, built in 1906.

Percival Landing Park stands on the site of the old Percival family dock. Built by the City of Olympia in 1977, it offers fabulous harbor views, extensive public artwork and historical markers that detail the city’s maritime past.

At Priest Point Park, just two miles from downtown Olympia, you can still get a glimpse of what the land looked like before outside settlers came. Dark green woods, dripping with moss, still encircle a hidden cove and blanket the banks of Budd Inlet as they have for thousands of years.
