Support Our Ministry

We are a summer camp, conference center and outdoor school that has been partnering with churches to make life-long disciples of Jesus Christ for more than 60 years.

Our secluded 340-acre grounds are surrounded by the Sierra National Forest. We have a blend of hotel and rustic lodging, meeting spaces, outdoor activities, and indoor dining. Located an hour north of Fresno and 30 minutes from Yosemite National Park, retreat groups gather here to rest, worship and connect with God in the majesty of his creation.
