A Resource for Christian Growth
Delano Bay Christian Camp is a beautiful center for Christian activity located on the Puget Sound, about a one hour drive from Tacoma. A Lodge/Dining Hall and two hillside dormitories can sleep a total of 110 people, plus seaside cabins and RV parking make DBCC a highly functional and attractive location for many enjoyable Christ-centered programs and activities. This magnificent God-given facility is a valuable multi-use tool for the spiritual growth of our youth, families, and congregations.
What do we do at Delano?
A place for people in the Northwest to Encounter Jesus, the Messiah.
Building Lasting Foundations
In the summer, the sights and sounds of young people enjoying Delano Bay Christian Youth Camps tell a wonderful story. A dining hall full of exuberant youngsters at mealtime; Bible classes on a grassy hillside, under trees and on cabin porches; fierce competition in a game of capture the flag; the blending of voices in praise around a campfire; the serenity of watching the rising moon reflected in the bay. All of these ingredients brings us into an encounter with the risen Christ.
Rest and Regroup
Host your next congregational retreat or youth rally at our amazing facility. Whether you are planning a men’s retreat or a family camp, we have flexible facilities that can accommodate 100+ guests! Our conference center in the lodge works well for worship sessions or business meetings and anything in between. Spend some time walking along the beach or cooking smores at the fire. Relax in our outdoor gazebo, or shoot some hoops at our basketball court! The camp is fully winterized and is accessible year-round.
A Serene Destination
Bring your family together in the beautiful stillness of Delano Bay. Soak up a bit of the peace and beauty of God's incredible creation. The cabins are available for a very reasonable price. They aren't fancy, but each one has a small bathroom, refrigerator, and stove. You'll be lulled by the sound of the water and entranced by the views of Mt. Rainier and the bay. These cabins are available when youth camp sessions and other major functions are not underway. Check out our calendar for availability.

When he was at table with them, he took the bread and blessed and broke it and gave it to them. And their eyes were opened, and they recognized him. And he vanished from their sight. They said to each other, “Did not our hearts burn within us while he talked to us on the road, while he opened to us the Scriptures?”
