Camp & Retreat Ministries

CAL-PAC CAMPS

Cal-Pac Camps is a Christ-centered organization that focuses on the spiritual development of our campers. We follow three simple rules of Methodist living: Do Good, Reduce Harm, and Love God. We embody Christian community through worship, small groups, keynote speakers, prayer stations, and traditional camp fun!

It is nearly impossible to not make a new friend at camp. The lifelong bonds forged around a campfire are what core memories are made of. All of our campers and staff come from rich and diverse backgrounds allowing for shared experiences to shape our identities. (“Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.” — 1 Thessalonians 5:11)

All three of our camps offer a variety of games and activities for our campers to enjoy while they are here. Our leadership teams work hard planning group bonding games, special interest groups, night activities, and of course campfire shenanigans! Other features include ropes courses, gaga pits, arts and crafts, and swimming!
