From I-5 in Eugene, Oregon, take Exit 194A/Highway 126 toward Springfield. The highway ends at Main Street. Proceed straight through the light onto Bob Straub Pkwy. which will turn into Jasper Lowell Road. From the light at Main Street, it is 5.8 miles. Turn right into Laurelwood Academy.
Camp meetings began in the 19th century. People would travel from a wide region to a specific area to camp out, listen to preachers, pray and sing. While not much has changed, accommodations have gotten much more comfortable!
There are numerous campsites available. Picnic tables and shower facilities are available as well.
We have a limited number of 20amp and 50amp hookup sites (electricity and water) available.
There are numerous hotels in the Eugene area, 20 to 30 minutes from campus (browse hotels).
The ARISE dorm is on the same property as convocation and there are a very limited number of rooms available.
Something for Everyone
There are three programs for children: ages 1-4 led by Kierra Rafferty, ages 5-8 led by Jason Miller & Olga Boneta Rodriguez, and ages 9-12 led by Linda & Dan Hovanski, so your children can discover God's love in meaningful ways at their age.
Pastor Christian Martin leads a program for youth ages 13+. From the physical activites to fundraising for missions, every experience lifts up Jesus and teaches His principles of character.
Nourish Your Body Too
Not only will you be nourished spiritually, each year a number of food vendors* serve a variety of vegetarian and vegan meal options—you won't go hungry!

Can't Make It?
While nothing can replace the fellowship of attending convocation in person, we understand that not everyone can make it, so we broadcast each session live at lightbearers.org.
Can I bring my pet?
No. We understand that Fufu loves people and doesn't bite, but at this time we are unable to allow pets. We hope you understand and can respect this.
Can I have a campfire?
Campfires are not permitted anywhere on the property. There is an open fire pit at the pavilion which is available for your use.
How early can I arrive and when must I leave?
We're very busy preparing the grounds in the days leading up to convocation. For this reason we're unable to accept arrivals before opening day. Plan to arrive early on the first day of Convocation—nothing happens until the evening, so you will have plenty of time to get settled in.
Move out is by noon, the day after Convocation ends.
Do you have an RV dump site?
A dump site will be available on checkout day only. Please keep this in mind as you will be unable to empty your RV upon arrival.
How do I reserve my favorite site?
It isn't possible to reserve a specific location. Sites are assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis. To increase the likelihood of getting a location you want, we recommend you register as early as possible and plan to arrive in the morning on opening day.
