Loy White Day: An Open Invitation

As a multi-generational operation, Camp Loy White has positively impacted members of the community for almost sixty years. Long-time staff and former campers continue returning to this sacred space bringing along children and grandchildren with whom they hope to create precious memories comparable to their time at Camp Loy White. The mission with which the camp was created still reigns true: reconnecting people with nature through curiosity and adventure, offering a place to find stillness in the midst of a chaotic world, encouraging individuals to explore their faith or spirituality, and supporting any neighbor in need. Though the name has since changed to Tekoa Foothills, the original principles established a vein of truth that flows through the structure of the camp as a core design.
