May Customer Spotlight - Tall Timber Ranch

When you think of summer camps, you think of beautiful scenery, days on the water, and fun in the sun. With the mountains in the background, Tall Timber Ranch is a beautiful place to relax and "disconnect to reconnect" miles away from access to any cell phone service. Carl Stanfield tells us more about the camp and what makes it such a beautiful and unique camp. 

Tall Timber Ranch

What is Tall Timber Ranch?

Tall Timber is a Christian Camp and Retreat Center located near Leavenworth, Washington. We are best known for our summer camp program that takes place June-August each year, but we operate year round, serving schools from all over Washington through our Outdoor Education program and hosting a variety of guest groups most weekends throughout the year. We operate in a beautiful and scenic mountain setting, completely surrounded by massive mountains on all sides. We are nearly 7 miles from cell phone service out here, prompting our tag line “Disconnect to Reconnect.” We offer all of our guests the luxury of being forced away from their screens so they can better interact with each other and the beautiful nature that surrounds us.

When did Tall Timber Open?

Tall Timber starting running summer camps in 1957, meaning that this summer makes 60 years of service! We have grown so much over the years, from a few weeks of summer camps each summer for the local kids in our Presbytery to operating year round and serving over 600 kids each summer and thousands of guests throughout the year.

What is your favorite activity that you have?

Though I always love my adventures on our ropes course, my favorite activity to do here at camp has to be the hiking. Living on site, I love being able to take advantage of where I live by walking out my front door and being on any of our trails around camp within just a couple of minutes. We are a mere day hike away from the PCT, which is an awesome proximity I’ve been able to take advantage of a few times here over the years. I love being outside and living daily in the amazing nature that surrounds us here.

What made you need custom apparel for the camp?

We just released our brand new logo this winter, and we're excited to slap it on everything we can everywhere we can. We also have a pretty new crew around here, so we have lots of fresh eyes that noticed our camp store needs revamping. This winter we stocked up on a variety of gear featuring our new logo and have been quite pleased with the results. People love our stuff, and so does our staff!

Did Blue Dot Apparel fit your needs of an Apparel service?

Absolutely! Our camp store has been one of our proudest features this winter. Our staff love showing it off and walking around clad in fresh branded gear. There has been such a noticeable change in the sense of ownership we’ve created in our staff culture, and it’s always a thrill to see our guests out and about town wearing our gear!
