This combination provides a catalyst for growth and change that is simply dynamic!
In 1956, while conducting a senior high camp at Lake Wenatchee, four pastors of the North Central Washington Presbytery stopped by a dude ranch up the White River Valley. Overwhelmed by the beauty and majesty of this setting, they exclaimed, what a place to start our own camp! With the full support of the Presbytery, 133 acres was purchased for $18,000, and Tall Timber Ranch was born.
