Built in the 1930s as a Civilian Conservation Corp camp, the site has had several identities. They include the US Army (Lake Camp), Washington State University (Camp Welch), and finally Camp Prime Time.

Generous donations of volunteers, individuals, businesses, and organizations have made many improvements to their rustic setting. Today, the comfort level has been updated while retaining the look and feel of its older days.  Camp consist of a main lodge, 14 cabins, and two bathroom facilities.

Prime Time offers camper amenities in a rustic mountain environment:

  • Berthon Lodge with dining room, meeting room, playroom, and kitchen facility.
  • 14 Sleeping cabins with electricity, furnishings, and propane fireplace
  • 2 handicapped accessible, restroom bathhouses with hot water
  • Volunteer Housing on 2nd Floor of Berthon Lodge (6 Bedrooms with common restroom/shower)
