Family Camp


You also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house

First OPC holds an annual camp on the east side of scenic Mt.Hood near Wamic, Oregon, about 30 miles south of The Dalles, where the sun shines as much as 340 days of the year. Campers of all ages look forward to this event.

Speaker sessions

The highlight of the camp is a twice- daily session with a notable speaker on topics of interest to members of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church. OPC pastor, Larry Wilson, was our 2013 speaker on the topic of "God at Work". In 2014, native son Mark Sumpter spoke to us about education.

For 2015, we've scheduled the return of a camp favorite, author Dick Hannula! He writes:

    "For each of the five sessions [I plan to] select a Christian doctrine or virtue from Scripture and illustrate it in the life of a man and a woman from church history. I have written a book, scheduled to be published in the spring, on women through church history, so I have lots of examples of women to draw from as well as men... We would be touching on several periods of history from the early church through the 20th century as well as many lands."
