Start your summer off by building great mother & daughter memories!
Here’s your chance to celebrate the end of school and the beginning of summer.
Invite your daughter or mother. Come enjoy a weekend filled with inspiring teaching, worship, and plenty of fun and games!
Whether you’re into climbing walls, hiking, or relaxing by the pool, Angeles Crest offers a little something for everyone. We believe that connection and community are so important to God, which means they are so important to us.
I have taken my granddaughter and my oldest daughter to the “mother/daughter” retreat for the last 6 years and it has been a life changing, refreshing new hope, spending time with the Lord in worship and enjoying the blessings of the fun and excitement. Thank you Vickie and many others who have made this camp possible every year!
