About Us

N-Sid-Sen is a camp and retreat center of the Pacific Northwest Conference of the United Church of Christ (UCC). The UCC is a mainline protestant denomination, which promotes the respect and acceptance of all God’s people – no matter their country of origin, race, age, gender identity, sexual orientation, or religious background.

Our name comes from the indigenous Coeur d’Alene people. It means “Point of Inspiration.”

Established in 1935, N-Sid-Sen has served thousands of children, youth and adults through summer camp and year-round retreat experiences. Nestled along the shores of Lake Coeur d’Alene among nearly 300 acres of woodlands, creeks and meadows, our facilities provide unique opportunities for exploration, growth, and renewal to groups of 16 to 150 participants. Our guests and campers come from a wide variety of backgrounds, faith traditions and community groups.
