Camp de Benneville Pines sits at an altitude 6,800 feet on the north slope of Mt. San Gorgonio in the San Bernardino Mountains. The camp is surrounded by wilderness areas.
De Benneville Pines operates year-round as a spiritual retreat and educational conference facility. The camp is “on the grid” but manages its own water supply and waste streams. Kitchens, maintenance, and guest services are staffed year-round.
The lofty pine forest and rustic cabins belie the comfort-camping amenities, including paved trails, beds, hot showers, a pool and spa, plus quality cafeteria-style dining. At group conferences and retreats, individuals recharge and reconnect, exploring common interests and fortifying themselves to be a force for good “down the hill” in the community.
An array of recreational amenities abound: an archery range, frisbee golf course, volleyball and basketball courts, a children’s playground, and more. For spirit, there’s a labyrinth, hiking areas, and a number of spots for individual and group contemplation and worship activities.
Today we look toward ensuring a strong future, with additional meeting space, environmentally sensitive accommodations, and improved accessibility for all.
