Christian Summer Youth Camps

At Angeles Crest, our summer camp programs are an opportunity for students from any background to have fun, make new like-minded friends, explore nature and, most importantly, grow in their relationship with God.

When our campers aren’t in organized worship or hearing from inspirational speakers, they’re busy with tons of awesome activities like paintball, basketball, digglers (a unique cross between BMX & a scooter), Zip lining, volleyball, archery, a climbing wall, a trampoline, hiking trails, games and so much more!

Our Theme This Year Is Road Trip

The idea of a road trip can strike dread into the hearts of most preteens. Long, boring hours squeezed between siblings. Leg cramps from a huge cooler tucked under your feet. “Holding it” longer than you thought humanly possible. Hunger pains tormenting your stomach. So what makes a road trip worth it? A good playlist? Meaningful conversations? Beautiful scenery? The destination? (Unless it’s a relative who drives you crazy.)

Our lives are very much a road trip. At Angeles Crest this summer, we will travel alongside the story of a water walker, one of the first followers of Jesus – a fisherman, a truth speaker, a passionate believer, and an occasional doubter. Together, we will tap into the amazing insights of his “road trip” and how ours can be all the better.

What I love most about Angeles Crest is the awesome surroundings. It is literally perched on the wide crest of a forested mountainside in the middle of the rugged Angeles Crest National Forest. From most sides of the main camp area, you can see out for miles around which yields amazing views and photographs — particularly sunsets from the outdoor amphitheater, pool, and open recreation field area. I’m amazed that even though the camp is so close to the urban sprawl of LA and Orange County, when I’m up here, I feel like I’m a million miles away from the day-to-day pressures down in the lowlands!

Life-changing experience! This camp creates a place where anybody can get connected with God, away from the distractions of the world. They have lots of activities and speakers that will rock your world. Every time I go up I come down changed and engaged with my creator.

Angeles Crest gave me an opportunity to serve early in my ministry.

They believed in me early on. It is really cool and gracious of God to allow me to return in this brand-new program partnership. We can’t wait join forces with Angeles Crest to bring a ‘RoadTrip’ summer program in 2018.

Amberly Neese, Associate Director of Program Ministry, UCYC
