Camp Wittman was established in 1986 as a collaborative partnership between the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Lewis-Clark Valley and Wittman Farms with the mission of supporting natural resource and outdoor education for youth and natural resource educators. Since those first summers in tents, Camp Wittman has expanded with the help of countless community volunteers to include today’s facilities, including a lodge, activity pavilion, bunkhouses, outhouses, shower houses, campfire gazebo, kitchen and dining area, water system, solar power and other amenities.
Over the years, Camp programming has expanded beyond Boys and Girls Club camps and activities to serve increasingly broad audiences ranging from forestry, wildlife, youth development, Head Start, public school environmental education curriculums, and much more. Local businesses have also increasingly utilized the camp as a quality experience for business strategic planning and retreats.
In 2021, the Camp transitioned to an independently operated non-profit organization named the Camp Wittman Outdoor Center in order to better serve the expanding stakeholders that can benefit from camp usage. The Camp Wittman Outdoor Center maintains the primary mission to facilitate quality outdoor experiences for youth, and will continue to prioritize usage by schools and youth development organizations to that end.
