We are excited that you are considering Camp Oakhurst for your ministry retreat or conference! Our goal at Camp Oakhurst is to provide a secluded setting where individuals and groups may experience a time of renewal with God in His creation. We are located in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada’s just 20 miles from the south gate of Yosemite National Park, on 180 acres adjacent to the Sierra National Forest.
The Camp Oakhurst staff is dedicated to providing your group with excellent meals and a clean, comfortable facility. Our gracious staff and majestic setting combine to provide you with a spiritual atmosphere that inspires Christian growth.
Our greatest desire is to see God glorified and His people mature through the teaching of His Word, worship, fellowship, recreation, and rest. We believe it is our calling and ministry to provide wonderful service, hospitality, and an environment where you will leave knowing Jesus and one another more intimately.
Nestled in the Southern Sierra’s, we are about 20 miles south of the entrance to Yosemite National Park. We have easy access off of Hwy 41, just 45 minuets Northeast of Fresno and only ten minutes from scenic Oakhurst, California.
We are a year-round host camp, which means that we provide the place, service, food and some awesome Adventure Activities, and you bring your own program. We can accommodate up to 300 people in the summer, 180 other times.
We serve many types of groups such as; Christian organizations including their youth groups, women’s groups, men’s groups, family groups and leadership groups. Our facility is also available to non-profit civic groups, schools, service organizations and special needs groups.
We do require that all groups respect our beliefs as outlined in our Statement of Faith, and abide by the rules set forth in the governing guidelines of our contracts.
Camp Oakhurst came into existence in the early nineteen eighties with a donation of 160 acres by the Barcus family. At that time it was owned and managed by the Central California Church of God Association. Since January of 1999, the camp is an independent organization run by a non-denominational Board of Directors. Our camp strives to provide a Christian atmosphere and service to groups wishing to pursue spiritual growth in a beautiful mountain setting.
