Have your child enjoy the beautiful scenery of the foothills of the Eastern Cascades. The lush green oasis of the Lazy F Camp and Retreat is nestled in the crisp golden scenery of Manastash Canyon. Daily visits from deer families add to the peaceful backdrop of trees, fields, ponds, and mountains. Manastash Creek gracefully flows through the center of the camp.

We hit our mark by offering a true outdoor camp experience many music camps don't offer. We believe in educating the whole child socially and emotionally through musical experiences, positive encouragement, friendships, and fun physical  outdoor activities. Electives include archery, creek float, zip line, wall climb, arts & crafts, and more! Enjoy great food, skits, fiddling and outrageous camp songs.
