Camp Orkila is on the water and looks out to Presidents Channel and the Canadian Gulf Islands, which the sun goes down behind every night making for amazing, colorful sunsets. Most of Camp Orkila's 280 acres are preserved forest with hiking and horse trails. The cabins range from open air to full duplex style housing near the conference center. The facilities at Camp Orkila include a junior olympic sized pool, model farm with horses during the summer, many types of sports facilities, various kinds of boats including a 44' passenger cruiser, two dining lodges, a marine salmon center, outdoor chapel, a number of large covered and indoor gathering spaces, a craft center with attached pottery studio, and the requisite stage and campfire pit with Puget Sound and the sunset for a backdrop. Camp Orkila also owns Satellite Island, and Twin Lakes which are used for field trips and as a base camp for expeditions crossing into the Canadian Gulf Islands.
