About Us

Trust. Treasure. Take After Jesus.

Founded in 1923, Idyllwild Pines Camp and Conference Center has been a place for generations of Christian ministry, retreats, and events for nearly 100 years. While we may have begun as a humble campsite of platform tents and stone fireplaces (some of which are still around today!), we are now a 52-acre facility with year-round availability! With room for up to 500 campers (350 from October to April), our mission is to provide space for your group to “trust, treasure, and take-after Jesus.” Whether you are a small team looking for all inclusive cabins, or a large guest group looking for ample activities such as archery or paintball, we are here to help you create your own adventure!
