Host Your Group at Daybreak
Unlike most camps, Daybreak Camp is designed for Christian and not-for-profit organizations that are interested in a Do-It-Yourself experience, meaning that food shopping, prepping, preparing, serving and clean up is provided by your group. This feature allows Daybreak to offer unique pricing that makes camps and events “doable” for many groups.

Daybreak Camp is the perfect setting for youth and young adult retreats, family camps or men’s retreats. Groups utilizing Daybreak are inspired and reminded of the beauty and power of God’s goodness and love in His amazing creation. This mountain setting is rich in diverse microclimates from a park-like setting at the center of camp to forests alive with Doug firs, western hemlocks, tanoaks, madrone and old growth redwoods. Here you will likely find serenity and a quiet retreat place for spiritual renewal.
This place is FABULOUS! We used it for a high school retreat for our church group. Tons of great space for rec, prayer trails and hikes, cabins were decent, plenty of hot water. The managers are fantastic and I loved the 9-square game and horseshoes. Plenty of parking, easy to get to, close to stores you might need stuff from but you feel really tucked away. The kids had a blast! Great full kitchen and mess hall, deer and bobcats to be seen! Great amphitheater with a tech booth, perfect for our morning worship and evening times. I highly recommend!
Frequently asked questions
Our camp program model reflects the original traditions of Christian camping. Our programs are staffed with volunteers from the families and churches of our campers. When one volunteers, they have the opportunity to thrive in God’s beautiful creation, being together, away from the distractions of daily life, and providing leadership, mentorship and friendship to a viable camp community.
The care and safety of our campers matter greatly to us. One of the best practices to ensure their safety is to become knowledgeable and trained in all areas of camp safety. All staff and employees of Daybreak Camp MUST complete the MinistrySafe Safety System and CPR/First Aid training prior to volunteering.
Parents of Campers – you are Daybreak Camp! What a blessed way to spend one week, a true investment in children, your child, yourself and others. There are so many volunteer jobs to fill during a week of camp and we need you! (Link to Volunteer PDF or Page)
At Daybreak Camp we are concerned about the safety of campers with food allergies. On our registration website you will be able to list your camper’s allergies to food, medications, etc. Prior to the start of camp our administrative staff will provide reports to our kitchen staff and nurses regarding the allergies of all campers.
Our Kitchen staff will make every reasonable accommodation for your camper.
The safety of each camper is of upmost importance to us. A full-time adult Health Supervisor (physician, registered nurse, licensed vocational nurse) or a person who is trained in accordance with section 1596-866 of the Health and Safety Code (not an EMT) is charged with health supervision at camp.
At camper registration all medications are checked in with the nurse. This ensures that campers do not have access to mediation that has not been prescribed to them. Inhalers and epi pens are allowed in the cabin with campers.
In case of an emergency, Daybreak Camp is located in close proximity to Emergency Services and Dominican Hospital.
Parents, your trust in us to provide the best possible camp experience for your camper is something we take very seriously. We strongly encourage friends and family not to visit campers and staff during camp; visiting can be extremely disruptive to the entire camp.
Please protect “Camp Time” by not scheduling medical appointments, sports activities, etc. during your child’s week of camp. Your camper will enjoy receiving emails and notes from you.
