Our History

camp_photo15CEDARBROOK CAMP Southern California carries forward the legacy of Camp Cherith Southern California serving campers since 1946. The name change to Cedarbrook Camp Southern California became official on December 31, 2008.

Our long camping history began as Camp Cherith Southern California, a summer program for a church club organization. Since 1946, we have had camp each summer and desire to continue that legacy.

Things you should know:
• We continue “building relationships that last a lifetime.”
• We utilize programs and various activities to offer a wonderful camping experience campers have enjoyed each year.
• Our commitment remains the same–“to reach and disciple boys and girls for Jesus Christ!”


We are part of the Association of Cedarbrook Camps (ACC), a group of Christ-centered camps throughout the United States dedicated to providing a safe and fun camping experience for youth. All Cedarbrook camps are dedicated to the fundamentals of our Core Cedarbrook Values: (1) Individual development; (2) Outdoor appreciation; (3) Intentional community; and foremost (4) CHRIST IN ALL WE DO!

We are accredited by the American Camp Association (ACA). It is important for us to retain this distinction as it shows our desire to run a quality camp that meets all safety standards of the camping industry.

We are also a long time member of the Christian Camp and Conference Association (CCCA).
