The Main Lodge is located at the end of Camp K's driveway off North River Road. There is plenty of parking for large groups. Also, to the right of the lodge, amidst the tall pines, there are 5 RV hook-up sites and numerous places to pitch tents.
The Main Lodge has the following accommodations:
The Meeting Hall overlooks the South Santiam River. The hall can be set up with living room furniture gathered around the two wood stoves at either end, or it can be set to accommodate tables and chairs to seat over 150 people. The Meeting Hall opens to the Kitchen by way of a large serving counter.
NEW! The Meeting Hall now has a large flat-screen TV for groups wanting to show presentations, worship slides, movies, etc.
Kitchen & Food Preparation UPDATED in 2020!
Generous donations and grants allowed us to make several improvements to our facility this year. The Kitchen had new countertops and cupboard doors installed, as well as a heating and air conditioning system. The Kitchen itself is big enough to accommodate your kitchen staff, and besides the standard cookware and place settings, it also includes many essentials for large food preparation--industrial ovens, grill, mixer, and dishwasher (see pictures below). The Meeting Hall also houses a walk-in pantry, a walk-in cooler (see picture below), 3 refrigerators, and 3 freezers. In 2021, a new HVAC system was also installed.
Nurse's Room & Laundry
Just off the Meeting Hall, there is a Nurse's Room with a set of bunks, a comfortable place for sick and injured campers during the duration of your camp or outdoor school. There is also a laundry room in the lodge for your use. Please bring your own First-Aid supplies and laundry soap.
Sleeping Accommodations UPDATED in 2021!
In the Main Lodge, there are two bedrooms located just off the Meeting Hall (typically used for nurses and/or camp directors). One bedroom includes a double bed and a bunk.
The other includes a double mattress, 2 twin mattresses, and a bunk. There is also an upstairs sleeping area (called the Crow's Nest) with a double bed and 16 twin beds. The Crow's Nest was updated with new beds and HVAC in 2021.
The total sleeping capacity for the Main Lodge is 30.
The Main Lodge has both male and female bathrooms, each with 2 sinks, 3 toilet stalls or urinals, and 3 showers.
Camp Koinonia is well-known for its signature tall A-frame cabins, 6 in total. Each cabin is well-ventilated, includes heaters and fans as needed, and houses 8 bunks for a total of 96 campers. The Crow's Nest in the Main Lodge is often used as overflow sleeping for campers (see Sleeping Accommodations above).
An additional A-frame structure is the bath house (Haven of Rest), and includes 4 sinks, 4 bathroom stalls, and 6 showers.
In 2020, through generous donations and grants, we were able to install heating and venting (to reduce the moisture), automated motion-sensor lights, and new shower tile, making this haven truly a place of 'rest' and comfort.
