Come join us for a fun and relaxing 3-day weekend up in the beautiful San Bernardino National Forest at Camp de Benneville Pines! Young Adult Camp is an annual summer retreat for 18 to 35 year-old Unitarian Universalists and people of all faiths.

Meet new friends, reconnect with old friends, learn alongside social justice volunteers all while dancing your heart out and laughing out loud. Surrounded by the natural beauty of the mountain views, starry night skies, and a welcoming community, you will find your space and your place in this magical mountain top retreat center.

Camp Deans Caleb Crabbs and Vice Noori look forward to exploring the connections between UU spirituality and the power of community.

Nestled under a grove of towering pines, cedars, and oaks, Camp sits in a magical setting and is the perfect place to unwind. Enjoy archery, hiking, swimming, hot tubbing, volleyball and more.

Affiliated with the Unitarian Universalists Association, Camp de Benneville Pines is welcoming to people of all faiths and backgrounds who share the principle of the worth, dignity and interconnected web that binds us all together.

Campers are encouraged to invite new friends up the mountain into Camp’s circle.

Please register and pay the deposit early to ensure your registration. We look forward to seeing both old and new faces Labor Day weekend!

Camp de Benneville Pines welcomes you to a peaceful night’s rest in one of seven sleeping cabins. The cabins are scattered throughout our beautiful property, surrounded by forest, and walking distance from all camp activities and other buildings. Each cabin is distinctively decorated with a mountain theme. All offer rustic comfort.

Cabins host between three and nine sleeping rooms and two to three communal bathrooms. Standard accommodation includes twin bunk beds.

Experience the joy of togetherness in our cozy cabin retreats. For individual adventurers or friends journeying together, our cabins offer a harmonious blend of community and comfort, accommodating 2-4 guests per room. We understand the value of companionship, so we invite you to personalize your stay by requesting roommates during the registration process or asking friends and family to join you ensuring your camp experience is shared with familiar faces and new friends alike.
