Calvin Crest is serene and secluded, surrounded on all sides by the Sierra National Forest. Located ten miles northeast of Oakhurst, CA, we are a stone’s throw from Bass Lake in one direction and Yosemite’s South Gate in the other. At 5000 feet, we breathe clean air, enjoy incredible sunrises and sunsets, and experience four vibrant seasons. The land around our camp is recovering from a significant fire event and is bursting with regeneration and new growth. It is incredible. Come see for yourself!

Calvin Crest is a study in contrasts. It is a place to play and pray. Groups can build relationships during meals and meetings yet also find tranquil spaces for solitude and rest. Guests can participate in a variety of fun activities and also take time to gather for worship or quiet reflection in one of our outdoor amphitheaters, around a campfire, under the stars, or along a hiking trail. All ages are welcome at Calvin Crest. We have something to offer everyone.

At Calvin Crest, we serve three specific populations. We host incorporated churches who align with Christian doctrine and practice, secular or Christian schools teaching about science and nature, and secular or Christian non-profit organizations working to bring wholeness to their communities.
