Purpose

We seek to provide an eye-opening, life-changing experience that allows every camper to encounter the Gospel individually and as part of a community. We want each student to grow closer to God and to form tighter bonds of community with their group as they learn more about the saving grace of Jesus Christ. By both bolstering and challenging each student and group, we encourage self-reflection and challenge students to examine how their actions and future decisions might affect the broad scope of eternity as they minister to others outside of church and camp.

Philosophy

We believe that many different experiences, including shared ones, can be the catalysts for inspired Christ-like change in students’ lives. Because of this, we want to place students in situations that allow them to engage directly and purposefully with those experiences. A few of these include:

  • Spending time in God’s breathtaking Creation
  • Listening to engaging speakers who challenge students to walk more closely with Jesus or even to know Him for the first time
  • Taking part in Christ-centered times of worship
  • Focusing on missional world-change
  • Participating in fun and friendly competitions
  • Discussing and growing together as a church group
  • Discovering adventure activities
  • Reflecting during designated small group times on what the Lord is accomplishing at camp.

You lead. We serve.

We strive to be a part of bringing about eternal Christ-like change in every guest who comes through our gates. We recognize that you, as the group leader, know what your group needs most in a camp experience. As camp is only a short scene in the greater story of what God is doing in your group, we want to assist you however possible. We welcome your input and trust your discernment.

Health & Safety

Food & Allergies

At Glorieta Camps we are evaluated on every aspect of our program, including our meals. Our summer menu provides high-quality, enjoyable food. During the registration process, each guest can note dietary needs in the health history section. Our food service team is making adjustments to accommodate only the most common special dietary needs. Breakfast always includes a fruit and cereal bar, which includes many gluten-free options, and we provide a large salad bar at every lunch and dinner. We require at least 2 weeks notification of dietary needs so our food service staff can make the necessary purchases and preparations. Please note: our intention is to accommodate those with health-related requirements. We do not make special accommodations for dietary preferences, such as vegan or vegetarian.

  • Peanut Allergies: To accommodate campers and guests with allergies to peanuts, we maintain a peanut-free kitchen. That being said, we require advance notification of severe peanut allergies to know if it will be necessary to remove all peanut products from our Coffee Shops.
  • Gluten Sensitivity: For those sensitive to gluten, we provide a special refrigerator and microwave oven in the Dining Hall. We stock the refrigerator with gluten-free bread and lunch meat based on advance notification. This area is separate from all other preparation areas. Although we are looking for substitutes for gluten-containing items, we do not can not boast truly gluten-free meals as we cannot guarantee that all food, cooking surfaces, utensils and serving dishes have had no contact with gluten.
  • Other Food Allergies: Upon advance notification and arrangement, campers and guests with other allergies may use the gluten-free refrigerator and microwave to store and heat food.
