The San Diego Christian Foundation’s Mt. Palomar Bible Camp has provided a life-changing spiritual experience for young people throughout San Diego County for over three decades. Each summer, young lives draw closer to Christ through the week-long elementary (youth), middle, and high school camps. Free from the many distractions and obligations of their day-to-day lives, the campers grow in their knowledge of God’s Word; establish friendships with other Christian young people; and many commit to follow Christ for the rest of their lives through baptism. Camp also provides an opportunity for those who are new to the church to learn more about the wonders of God. The connections that the campers build with each other and with Christ are long lasting and influence their lives in incredible ways for years to come. Further, the spiritual seeds planted during this experience help to grow and strengthen the body of Christ in San Diego County and beyond.
As in years past, Palomar Christian Conference Center (PCCC; www.pccc.org) will host the camp atop San Diego County’s Palomar Mountain. The surrounding pine trees and breathtaking views from the PCCC are testament to the beauty of God’s creation. In addition, the PCCC provides the perfect venue for spiritual activities, like fireside worship, devotionals, and prayer walks, as well as recreational activities such as basketball, softball, swimming, and hikes. Of course, making new friends is always a highlight of camp!
While on the mountain, campers will be well supervised by experienced camp Directors, Staff members, and Counselors. One of the most incredible aspects of Mt. Palomar Bible Camp is the fact that volunteer directors, nurses, and counselors/staff – people who sacrifice their personal and vacation time because they recognize the importance of camp – primarily operate it. If you feel called to serve the Lord in this way and you desire to provide San Diego youth with an important spiritual experience, please consider volunteering at one of the three weeklong camps (please note that applications are required).
The health and safety of your child is of primary concern at camp. Our nursing staff are registered, licensed nurses, and very experienced with camp. The information you provide in your child’s registration packet will assist them in achieving our high standards for physical and mental wellness at camp.
