Camp Gilgal WWW provides an opportunity for our campers to get together between summer camps, and our prospective campers to “test drive” Camp Gilgal. The weekends start with a Shabbat dinner on Friday evening and end with lunch on Sunday. In between is some major fun and spiritual encouragement. Because California is huge, we have two weekend camps: one in Southern California (Mile High Pines in Angelus Oaks) and one in Northern California (Dream Mountain Christian Camp in Murphys).

Houseboating
Lake Shasta, California

This year’s adventure is houseboating on beautiful Lake Shasta. We’ll have an incredible amount of fun exploring, relaxing, spending time with God in worship, prayer and in Scripture, and simply just being together. And don’t worry, we eat very well out on the lake – our world-famous camper-chef team will take good care of us. Part of the adventure is deciding what we want to do on the way to and from Lake Shasta and on the lake itself! Transportation is available from Los Angeles.
