CAMP Koinonia Timeline



A 15-acre property is donated to area churches by the Stock family for the purpose of creating an affordable Christian camp experience for every child. The Main Lodge and kitchen are built.

The first summer camps are held at Camp Koinonia. The campers sleep in tents and swim in the South Santiam River. Baptisms also take place down in the river. 




The A-frame cabins are built. Campers can see the stars through the rustic shake roofs. 

Camp House (the camp manager's residence) is moved from the town of Foster to the camp property. Many homes in Foster are also relocated during this time for the creation of Foster Lake in 1968. 



The 70,000-gallon pool is constructed.


The Game Room (or "Stockade") is built, named after the Stock Family, who continues to help update the camp with generous donations.  


Camp Manager Josh Darwood builds several additions to Camp House--a porch, an office, and a master suite. 

basketball court is added. 

For an Eagles Scout project, Ben Stackhouse constructs a beautiful gazebo.
