In 1923, businessmen from the Los Angeles area established Idyllwild Pines as a place for outdoor Christian education.
Now, 90 years later, Idyllwild Pines still continues its Christian ministry of providing a beautiful place to learn about God. We are nestled in the majestic San Jacinto Mountains, at the mile-high altitude.
What began as a small campsite of platform tents and stone fireplaces is now a 50 acre facility that can accommodate up to 500 campers in the Summer and 350 campers in the Fall, Winter and Spring. We minister to churches, schools and others by providing comfortable and spacious facilities, as well as inspiring programming and staff that has a passion to support you.
Idyllwild Pines Camp, a Christian camp & retreat center has multi-use facilities from cabins to dormitories, and a number of spacious meeting rooms and dining halls. We offer fun and challenging activities during your camp stays.
Our mission is to create quality-affordable camp experiences that provide space for God to move our campers, staff and partners to live lives that inspire the next generation of believers to trust, treasure and take-after Jesus.
To Serve Christ & Christians through camps and retreats which provide connective, high-energy, life-changing programs for churches, schools, teams and groups.
