Hope is on the Horizon in 2021

2020 was a difficult year for people and the planet. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected global society, and weather events have wreaked havoc on communities and the environment. Camp de Benneville Pines was affected by both. We continue to keep the camp in good physical shape while protecting it from potential damage from rain and flooding due to the aftermath of the El Dorado fire last fall. With hope in our hearts, we are watching the progress of controlling the pandemic and look to the day we can be together on the mountain top. Camp without campers is a lonely place.

We are deeply grateful for the outpouring of love and support we have received through this challenging time. As we look forward to better days, we wish for everyone to be healthy and safe.

Together we thrive.

"Wonderful getaway. Great staff and beautiful grounds." Jennifer S.

We also lease our camp to non-affiliated groups such as "Camp Bravo", a theater arts camp for junior high and high school youth.  Midweek rentals of one or more cabins are also often available in the non-summer season. Perhaps we can provide you or your group a mountain home.
