The category that includes "Affiliated" camps is comprised of those events that take place at Camp de Benneville, but are entirely planned  and conducted by groups other than de Benneville or PSWD District staff.  These external groups take care of all event aspects of camp programming and administration, including registration and fee collection.  Camp de Benneville "only" provides the beautiful and unique venue, including lodging and meal service; as well as our director's consulting expertise in running suucessful camp programs for more than twenty years. For this reason, campers interested in the camps in this category are best served by following the links, below, to the websites or registration forms of the various organizations providing Affiliated camps. Upcoming Affiliated camps are listed below in chronological order.

    Fire Burning Near Old Boy Scout Tank

    The "Lake Fire" that has so far consumed over 25,000 acres of the San Bernardino National Forest began close to our Camp's southern border. Our Camp is (as of Friday, June 26th), undamaged by the fire. However, we have suffered financial loses due to the closure of Route 38 and Jenks Lake Road, and the evacuation of all campers in the area. A skeleton crew, including our director Janet James remains on site.
