The Family Ministry group sponsors All-Church Camp, which is our annual gathering at de Benneville Pines, our District Camp and Conference Center in the San Bernardino Mountains. Our camp is shared with the Chalice Unitarian Universalist Congregation in Escondido. All-Church Camp provides us with an opportunity to spend an extended time with members of our community becoming more connected, and deepening our commitment to our community. Each year members and friends of both congregations share their time, gifts and skills to develop a program that provides individuals of all ages with opportunities for scheduled activities as well as time to enjoy the beauty of nature all around us. Our camp is traditionally the weekend following Memorial Day weekend (late May/early June). Registration begins in April. Scholarships are available for those who need them.
Camp de Benneville Pines is a retreat and conference center located in the Barton Flats area of the San Bernardino National Forest, about 90 miles east of Los Angeles. At an elevation of 6,800 feet, the camp is surrounded by a forest of towering pines, cedars, and oaks. The facilities include a heated swimming pool, a hot tub, children’s playground, an archery range, and opportunities for many outdoor sports. The cabins are all equipped with modern bathrooms and hot showers, and offer comfortable sleeping quarters. Meals are prepared by the kitchen staff and served in the main lodge.
If you would like to contribute to or request a scholarship from our Scholarship Fund please note that on your registration form. Please note that our general policy is to grant up to 50% of the fee, subject to availability of these limited scholarship funds.
