We are a non-profit organization that operates a camp and retreat center about 40 min outside of Big Bear, CA.
During the summer months we operate as a sleep-away summer camp offing children the opportunity to develop a sense of responsibility, self-reliance, and independence in a setting that inspires fun, friendship, and a passion for the natural environment
The rest of the year we operate as a retreat center offering housing, meals, and team building activities to up to 350 guests at a time. Our guests include corporate leadership groups, church groups, and even the occasional wedding. Operating as a retreat center allows us to retain our wonderful team members on a year-round basis as well as earn income for our camp scholarship fund. Over 50% of our summer camp kids receive financial assistance in order to attend camp - so every dollar counts!
The retreat center is dedicated to providing children and adults of all religions, races, and economic status with extraordinary outdoor experiences in the beautiful San Bernardino National Forest.
