Mount Hermon’s properties are in some of the most beautiful places on earth! Our original site, nestled in the towering Santa Cruz mountains redwoods, is just six miles from Monterey Bay. Our Kidder Creek Camp, in the Scott Valley near Mount Shasta, sits against the stunning backdrop of the Marble Mountain Wilderness area. The Whisper Canyon locale is a rustic retreat near Paso Robles and Lake San Antonio.
Mount Hermon’s year-round Christ-centered camps, conferences and concerts serve the entire family. Come explore and be amazed. More than 60,000 people experience Mount Hermon each year. Directions and maps to each facility are on our Directions Page.
In Santa Cruz, there are three self-contained camp and conference facilities: Summers at Ponderosa Lodge are geared for junior high and senior high students; Redwood Camp’s full summer schedule delights elementary and primary school-aged kids; our Conference Center summers provide a Christian resort camping experience designed for every member of the family.
At Kidder Creek we offer a broad array of traditional, adventure and horse riding camps for youth of all ages. The wilderness programs engage in whitewater rafting, rock climbing, cliff jumping and much, much more!
Throughout the remainder of the year, each facility operates Mount Hermon-sponsored camps and conferences, as well as hosting programs provided by guest groups who support our ministry objectives. Let us know how we can serve you or your group. Amid all the variety, one thing is consistent—God is at work at Mount Hermon, and the result is lives transformed.
