Registration Open for Camp Lodestar

Full Camp Experience: Thursday – Wednesday, June 23–29
Retreat Weekend: Thursday – Sunday, June 23–26

Summer church camp talent showStep away from the hustle of your daily life and enter the peace and beauty of Camp Lodestar for our yearly intergenerational church camp, where we share community, scripture, relationships, nature, and fun. Through camping, we develop a deeper relationship with God and each other. This year’s theme will be Inside Out: Feelings & Faith.

Camp Lodestar, a property of The United Methodist Church, is located near Wilseyville, in the Sierra Nevada Foothills above the Gold Country towns of Jackson and Sutter Creek.

Activities include tackling the ropes courses, swimming in the pool, practicing archery, hiking the many trails, playing bingo, and making crafts. Every year is different—and wonderful. YOU are welcome!

Two date range options are available: the full week of June 23–29 (7 days/6 nights), or the first long weekend of June 23–26 (4 days/3 nights). Accommodations range from cabins to semi-private rooms to hook-ups for your RV.

Prices are reduced this year! Rates for adults start at $250/person for the weekend and $420/person for the full week; pricing varies by age and accommodation choice. Get more information on the camp website and register online, or pick up a registration form at the Connection Point. Registration ends May 15 or when capacity is reached. For scholarships or other information, contact Patricia Parfett (650-383-9322 or patriciaparfett@laumc.org). If you are a friend of church camping but unable to attend this year, consider a donation to our scholarship fund so others may go!
