Now that you're older, life is busy and your calendar is over-scheduled. We get it. But that's exactly why Tall Timber exists: to help you spend a few days disconnecting from the hustle and bustle of daily life and reconnecting with some of those things – and people – that matter most.

IF Women’s Retreat
We hope this weekend will bring a sense of rest, renewal, and closeness to God in this wonderful wilderness setting. IF 2019 sessions will look at one of the most practical, yet misunderstood, books of the Bible - Proverbs. Together, we are going to discover what it looks like to do these things, not perfectly, but in good faith, trying our best to obey God and His way of life. Throughout your weekend, you will experience the blessing of community and close friendship with the other participants. So prepare your hearts for a wonderful time of fellowship and worship.

A songwriting retreat with Beth Whitney
and special guests, Brandon Bee and Matt Terjeson
Join us in the majestic Leavenworth mountains for a weekend to rest, reflect, and renew your creativity. For as long as we've made sound, music has helped us peer into the profound mystery and experience of being human. I believe that processing the suffering and joy of human existence using lyric and music is a noble pursuit and one trailhead into greater well-being. Wildernest is a chance for you to slow down, try new things, collaborate with others, find your voice, take in the wonder of the wilderness, eat delicious food that you didn't have to make, and whether writing your first song or your hundredth, create a little beauty out of chaos. Register now and let's make some music!
Crafting her award-winning wild folk songs in the seasonably rich hills of the Pacific Northwest, Beth Whitney’s music pulls us into the deep wilderness, over tangled streams, and into high meadows we never knew existed. Her voice, both simply warm and richly captivating, is reminiscent of greats like Sara Watkins and Alison Krauss, while her syncopation and unique delivery are relevant with the likes of recently popular bands, the Oh Hellos, and Of Monsters and Men.
Grammy nominated producer of over 300 records. Whether you are a solo artist, rock band, or folk duo, Brandon's pursuit is to help you find the sound you deeply desire. Brandon has a gift to help bring the best out of an artist. It comes from being an art lover and an artist himself first. He admires the God-given ability to create unique artistic expressions. Brandon defines himself as a classic producer.
Matt Terjeson is a recording/mixing engineer native to the Pacific Northwest. Matt has engineered hundreds of recording projects and continues to prove himself not just by the quality of the project, but by his ability to care about each song and artist the same. His attention to detail and precision reassures an artist that they are in good hands. No matter the style he is a perfect choice to bring your projects to life!

Memorial Work Weekend
Since 1957, Tall Timber has had a tradition of cleaning up camp and taking on projects with each other, all with the common purpose of preparing camp for another summer of campers. It is much the same today. The projects never end as we seek to improve camp or repair things that need some TLC. We welcome you to come and work, worship, meet new people, and share life together in this stunning and special place.
All skills and ages welcome!
Please take a moment to register so we can plan for your arrival, (i.e. lodging, food, projects, etc.). We will use this information to place you and your team with a project that matches your skills and interests with the current needs of camp.
Fall Pastor’s Retreat
Using the Olivet Discourse in Mark 13 as background and passages from three Old Testament Sentinels, Habbakuk, Isaiah and Ezekiel, we will explore our calling as pastors and practice that work of staying awake to God’s presence. As we reflect on these texts as a large group, in small discussion groups and individual silent reflection, our hope is to listen for and respond to the voice of God.
September 10th - 12th 2019
