Ways to get involved

At Idyllwild Pines, we are interested in engaging community. Our experiences in this community are life-changing and cause us to seek out others who would like to become a part of the Idyllwild Pines life. Whether you are a camp alumnus, a prospective camper or just interested in finding a way to partner with us in our mission; we have a variety of ways to become a member of the Idyllwild Pines community.

Our online community is where much of our information and interaction outside of the camp experience happens. Whether it involves photos, testimonials, discussions or connections between those who have experienced Idyllwild Pines Camp, connection and reconnection is available at your convenience, and open to the community of the camp.

Check out what's going on, who is visiting the camp and what people are saying about their experience at Idyllwild Pines Camp. In this busy season at Idyllwild Pines, we have a variety of activities, programming and opportunities for you to connect with nature, with others and with God. We look forward to seeing you around! Thanks for visiting us online, we can't wait to see you in person.

Prayer is essential to our survival. Prayer is a major connective element of Christian community, and Idyllwild Pines knows the strength and support from being engaged in seeking God together. We all need the vital connection to The Lord and to our community through prayer. Join us in lifting up and praising Him through our time of Prayer.

Because, prayer is something we all need, Idyllwild Pines wants to be engaged with its community in prayer. Send us your prayer requests or submit your information to be added to our prayer mailing list. We are a prayerful community and ask you to join us in seeking the Lord.


Volunteering is a unique form of philanthropy: a gift of unrestricted time and expertise to the camp. Volunteering provides a means for members of our community to bond over shared passions, and participate in beautification efforts, building relationships and growing our community.

From our humble beginnings, Idyllwild Pines has relied on the gifts of time, helping hands, open hearts and united minds in those who have a passion for Christ and a willingness to serve his community. We depend on you to help us reach the thousands of youth, adults and families we share this life-changing place with each year. Whatever your gifts and skills are, we have a number of ways to give of your time to help Idyllwild Pines Camp.

Here at Idyllwild Pines, we have a variety of ways for you to get involved in supporting the camp. Whether through partnership, traditional development capacities, or in-kind gifts in support of the ministry here, we would love to talk with you about what we are looking for and where we are heading. We know that we all will need to work together to bring the Name of God glory through the ministry of the camp. We believe that Southern California and beyond needs a place where people can connect with nature, while seeking retreat from the world to connect with God. Idyllwild Pines has been helping people find that place for over 85 years. With your help we can continue serving the Lord this way, to reach new generations for Him.
