Message from the Executive Director

Happy Holidays from all of us at MHKC!

We are thrilled to announce the return to in-person Winter Retreats on January 14-16th and February 18-20th. Campers will return to MHKC’s winter wonderland having new adventures playing in the snow, making new friends, and exploring all that Mt. Hood has to offer. To learn more about our Winter Retreat programs, click here.

While it’s hard to envision summer when it’s snowing at Camp, our programs team is already working hard to prepare for another amazing summer in 2023. Mark your calendars for summer camp registration January 9th-20th. If you have any questions or concerns, we are here to help! Email or call us at 503.452.7416 or
