There is simply no environment quite like Camp Cedar Crest. Regardless of the season in which the camp program takes place, camp is a catalytic environment for true-life transformation. It provides a setting where students disengage with the distractions of everyday life and engage with God in His creation. Students experience powerful worship and faith-filled teachings that draw them into a deeper relationship with Jesus. The activities are intentionally designed to foster community and encourage team building.
Our camp programs compliment local church ministries by super-charging kid’s church and bolstering youth groups. Simply put...CAMP MATTERS

Camp Cedar Crest
Located a short drive east of Los Angeles in the cool, clear air of the San Bernardino National Forest, Camp Cedar Crest is nestled on 90 acres of wooded mountain beauty. Nearby are world class resorts such as Blue Jay, Lake Arrowhead and Big Bear; with activities ranging from skiing, snowboarding, hiking and boating.
In 1946 Rev. Harold Chalfant campaigned and raised funds to purchase land for the Foursquare Church to establish Camp Cedar Crest. His vision was for a place where children and youth could escape the frenzied pace of city life and discover God in His creation. Today that vision continues, every year Cedar Crest hosts approxi-mately 20,000 campers and leaders through weekly and weekend programs, science camps and retreats.

We will have experienced staff who are available to assist you the entire time you are at camp. We do everything possible to make your camp experience a great one, striving to provide healthy and nutritious meals, as well as providing clean and comfortable cabins.
Camp begins at 4:00 pm on opening day and ends at 10:30 am on closing day.
Our schedule starts with breakfast, includes devotions and teachings, fun-filled activities, age specific worship services and evening fire-side chats.
Medical & Staff

At night campers and cabin leaders will retire to the safety of their cabins at approximately 9:30 pm.
