JUNEAU — Eagle River United Methodist Camp, located out the road at 27.5 Mile, is a nonprofit year-round community camp and retreat center open to all. Eagle River Camp is an accessible but remote location for your small or large group camp or retreat.
The camp is now accepting reservations for the following dates: July 12 to 15 (three nights), Aug. 1 to 2 (two nights) and Aug. 16 to Sept. 7. Openings for fall and winter use are also available now.
The camp is ideal for meetings or events, planning sessions, hiking, fishing, nature walks, bird watching, and church camps, as well as school or family camps. In the winter, it is a great spot for cross country skiing, winter survival camp, or environmental education.
The grounds consist of 48 acres of easily accessible isolation for group or family events. Nestled among 100 year old spruce trees, the mood is set for restful retreats or stimulating outings. Of course, it is a perfect place for recharging ones spiritual batteries any time of the year. Situated just before Eagle Beach State Park, within a five mile radius of the camp the topography goes from glacier ice to the salt water of the Lynn Canal making it an excellent location for outdoor camping, education and environmental studies. If desired, marked trails lead to high adventure in wildlife and botanical study. Adjacent to the camp are the facilities at Eagle beach and the trails to Herbert and Eagle Glaciers.
The 14 facilities include a Lodge, four rustic year round cabins, and nine summer cabins. Lodging in the summer is available for 120 people. The year round capacity for the ERUMC Lodge is 120 guests (includes a commercial kitchen).
