Welcome to Camp Loughridge

Authentic Christian Camps, since 1919

Yes, we are 100 years old!   In 1919 our Friendship Lodge was built as part of the original YWCA’s Camp Parthenia. Authentic Christian Camps launched generations of Tulsans to explore God’s natural creation and adventure through our woods and lakes. In 1959 we became Camp Loughridge, our Kirkland Chapel was soon built, bunk houses provided overnight experiences, and Weddings were celebrated.

Today we reveal a year-round experience in our urban wilderness.  Classic Summer Day camps, retreats, weddings, team building and specialty camps, the latter which serve those with physical challenges, learning differences, childhood diabetes, oncology challenges, and those experiencing profound loss.

We’re grateful for our community support and invite you to discover your own potential, renew your spirit, and listen for God’s plan for your journey in this wilderness sanctuary we call Camp Loughridge. The invitation is open to everyone.

Our Mission is simple: Instill the love and salvation of Jesus Christ in God’s natural creation by the power of the Holy Spirit!
