White Water Rafting

Adventure camp was designed with young adults in mind to be part road trip, part camping adventure. We'll be white water rafting on the Klamath River near the Oregon border, and it's an amazing amount of fun! We'll start at a ranch in Oroville (near Chico) and end in San Francisco. In between will be a road trip, rafting on a beautiful river, sleeping where you can see more stars than you can imagine, and we'll pass through the Avenue of the Giants (the coast redwoods) on our drive to San Francisco. Adventure camp is a great opportunity to develop lasting friendships and to spend time growing closer to the Lord in the beauty of His creation. Transportation is available from Los Angeles.

We began Camp Gilgal WWW in 1999 so our campers could have a chance to get together between summer camps, and our prospective campers could have an opportunity 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. It's like summer camp without the mosquitoes! 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).
