About the Retreat Center

A Peaceful Place Apart

A community retreat center, Camp Stevens is a “peaceful place apart” where groups can leave the bustle and distractions of everyday life to deepen relationships with one another and accomplish common goals. The serene, natural setting brings rejuvenation to the spirit, mind, and body. To inquire about availability or make a reservation, please call (760) 765-0028 or email

Camp Stevens is available to non-profit and religious groups for retreats, conferences, and meetings. Two hundred fifty-six acres of forest and meadows offer unhurried serenity, and the comfortable facilities are designed to encourage and support community-oriented programs for groups of 10 to 140 persons.

Each retreat has a designated “host,” who will greet you when you arrive, and make sure your needs are met throughout your time here.

You can organize and execute your own retreat or work with our staff to develop a retreat that addresses your group’s specific goals and maximizes your time here.  Each retreat group receives 1.5 hours of complimentary staff time, which can be used for guided hikes, garden tours, archery, a campfire, or a variety of other recreational opportunities. For an additional fee, our caring staff can provide your group with half-day, full-day, or weekend-long programs.
