Camp New Journey is an incredible new summer camp located in the San Bernardino mountains just north of Los Angeles California that serves churches and youth groups all across the southern California area. As great as it is, we couldn’t do it without an amazing camp staff – College / High school students who choose to spend weeks of their summers to serve. But who says service can’t be fun? We hike, swim, and play games (among other things), all while hanging out with kids who God can impact through YOU! If you want to spend your summer doing something meaningful and fun, apply now!
