CHARTER ELEMENTARIES AND HOMESCHOOL COMMUNITIES – Camp helps nearly 1,000 charter and homeschool kids have a safe and educational wildlife experience in winter and summer months.
CAMP BRAVO – Camp Bravo partners with Camp de Benneville Pines each year to provide young people, ages 10 – 18, interested in the performing arts with a beautiful outdoor setting and a safe non-competitive environment in which to immerse themselves in the thrill of performing. Taught by seasoned professionals, young artists will explore their creativity, discover new talents, and have fun!
PSWD OF THE UUA – The 50+ UUA member churches situated in the Pacific Southwest District (Southern California, Southern Nevada and Arizona) have long supported Camp through their PSWD Fair Share contributions.
