Hiking Trails

Grove Camp sits along 106 acres of both wooded area and river front area. From one of our hiking trails you travel along the river in a beautiful wooded area. The Hill Climb takes you up into a new tree area where you can look down to the Dorena Lake. Also connected to the property is the Row River Bike and Hiking Trail which takes you around the lake and all the way down to Cottage Grove.

Play Ground

The new playground facility features a very large play structure complete with swings, a tire swing, monkey bars, climbing wall, spiral slide, chalk board, pirate’s nest and more. There is also a 4 swing commercial grade swing set in the playground area.

Row River

The beautiful Row River runs through the camp property. On the river we have an “Awesome” swimming area. With a sandy bank and gradual depth river it provides a safe yet fun place to swim and compete on the plastic, padded log roll.

The Climbing Wall

The auto-belaying rock climbing wall has three courses on it. The first side is the easy side, which has a very high success rate. The medium side is conquered by a select few. The hard side of the wall is conquered by almost none. All are a blast to attempt, and very safe!

Camp Fire

The camp fire has circle seating for up to 200 people. Nestled in the wooded area, the camp fire provides a memorable place to hold campfire skits, worship and classes.


All of the Grove Christian Camp buildings are accessible by concrete sidewalks. You do not have to walk in the mud to get from place to place, making Grove Camp a great place to hold camps in all seasons.
