Greetings in the Name of our Lord Jesus and welcome to the website of Calvary Chapel Christian Camp. We are an outreach ministry of Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa. Our theme verse is found in the writings of King Solomon as recorded in Ecclesiastes 12:1, which says “Remember now your Creator in the days of your youth, before the difficult days come, and the years draw near when you say, “I will have no pleasure in them.”
Since our opening in the summer of 1994 we have come to a clear understanding of this verse through the blessing of serving the needs of over 200,000 young people that have graced this place and our lives. The vision Pastor Chuck received from the Lord several decades ago remains alive at Calvary Chapel Christian Camp today: “To create a place that young people can come from all walks of life, regardless of financial ability, social standing or place of residence. That they might come to experience the beauty of God’s creation, be taught His Word and participate in a wide variety of recreational activities that will challenge and excite every camper.”
Our emphasis is first on the spiritual; thus most camps spend the mornings and evenings in the Word and worship, with the afternoons reserved for recreational activities and just plain fun. As the wise Solomon said, difficult days are here and more are yet coming, our hope is that we can be used to prepare and equip them for the days to come, by completely filling them with the love of Jesus Christ our Lord. That they might meet the challenges of walking uprightly in an upside down world. We pray God’s richest blessings on you as you tour our site and hope to see you all soon.
