Happy New Year to all and I hope that the holidays were a great blessing for you and your
families as well as the churches or ministries that you lead.
I know it has been a bit since an update life gets hectic.
Camp is in a lull due to the weather and snow. There is a lot of snow up there. Obviously, this is
good for our states. The camp was shut down and buttoned up for the winter with the help of a
great group of volunteers. Smokey and Karen Denna had been at the camp a lot this past
summer doing work and making sure someone was on the grounds while we were prepping for
2023. Loren and Lynn Freeman spent a lot of time at the camp also in the early part of the year
again working hard on making the camp ready for this year’s reopening. With out the help that
was given this would not have been possible.
Our sewer renovation is ready to go once the snow melts. We have the new pumps, electrical
board and other items needed to get this back up and running. This was a project that needed to
be done to make sure that the camp has the infrastructure needed to accommodate camps.
The water truck is still needing to get the repairs done to it and should be done by the time of our
first camps. Sadly, Stephen McIntosh who was going to do the work was in a tragic accident last
March and he succumbed to his injuries in December. He was a great friend to me and an even
better friend to God’s work. He was a person that I could contact to have work done on
equipment for the camp. He had just finished the backhoe when he was in his accident. If you
could say a special prayer for his wife and four young kids.
Once we can get into the camp and start to prep for the year there will be lots of projects to be
done. We will always accept any help that you or your congregation can provide.
We were blessed by a large donation that came into the camp. This was funds from the estate of
a person who obviously had a great heart for this camp. I want to thank Abe Daniels and Trinity
Life who handled the estate and made sure that the wishes of this person were carried out. I
believe that several entities were blessed by this person.
Also, on a great note we will once again be hosting an AOG youth and kids camp at our facility.
This has been a work in progress to get these camps back and we want to make sure that they are
very successful. I have to give a big shout to Pastor Erika Deihl, Pastor Anthony Garza and
Pastor David Blythe of HighPoint Assembly along with the District Personnel and others that I
am sure I am missing for helping to make this happen.
As always please be in prayer for YOUR camp. This day in age we need to make sure that GOD
is our focus and continue to spread HIS word.

With a New Year - Registration for Family Camp 2023 is NOW OPEN!
We are so excited to share with you all of the exciting improvements to our camp! We're thrilled how God has continued to bless these grounds as we grow and improve. As we continue to be a effective ministry resource for so many churches and groups throughout Northern California, Nevada and Oregon... we invite you to join us at Family Camp 2023!
SENIOr CAMP 2023 - New REGISTRAR
Stan Wagner is happy to announce the placement of the new Senior Camp Registrar for 2023!
Mary Johnson, a true blessing for camp, as we move ahead to our grand re-opening in 2023.
Please direct all questions regarding Senior Camp 2023 to:
Senior Camp Registrar
Senior Camp 2022 - Canceled
In addition, we are also thinning trees for fire mitigation and creating a standard mapping system for new guests to navigate to grounds.
Lastly, we are working with upgraded electrical at the RV Meadow as well as putting implements in place to repurpose Snob Hill for additional RV trailer space.
For our Seniors, Camp is an opportunity to disconnect from the bustle and enjoy the beauties of the mountain, while getting closer to God. As work continues on the grounds, we know that the added projects will create safety hazards - as well as detract from the best experience the grounds has to offer.
Stay tuned for progress updates as we are excited to show you all we’ve done!
If you would like to support any of these projects, through labor or financial donation - please give here, or contact us to get on the volunteer list.
As we prepare for the 2022 Season of Change, the Camp Board has walked the grounds and made a final assessment of the projects we'd like to take on this Season. We continue to post updates on progress made.
If you feel lead to support one of these projects, either through your time or by donation. Please check out our Donate or Volunteer tabs to get started.
Seasonal Volunteer Requests are Now Open!
Seasonal Volunteers are assigned to assist with the many "Season Of Change 2022" projects scheduled!
Generally for our May work-month - after a snowy winter, the camp requires lots of work to prepare for spring and summer camps, including raking the grounds for fire protection, repairs, and general cleaning.
Volunteers are required to prepare the campground for peak season. All lodging and meals are covered for volunteers.
If you are interested in coming to Mount Lassen Camp to serve in that capacity, sign up today.
Season of Change
Season of Change - Postponement of 2022 Camp Spring/Summer Season
In April, we take a full month to rally volunteers and staff to open the grounds for Spring and Summer operations. This is a labor of love and a physically challenging task. Working through cuts, scrapes, tired muscles and the typical 12 to 16 hour day... our volunteers and staff work tirelessly 6 to 7 days a week... to get the grounds open and ready.
It takes an army and it takes commitment.
When the first camps arrive, we want this facility to be operational, safe and ready for them to experience God in a great way!
In 2022, we are rounding a new corner in the legacy of this camp. After evaluating some of the hurdles we were to face in getting us up and running - we have decided to postpone our 2022 Spring / Summer Year opening... so that we can continue to modernize these grounds and bring you the very best this mountain has to offer! This means we will also not be having a 2022 Family Camp this year.
What can you expect from us? Continued social media and blog announcements detailing the exciting projects we're tackling this year... and possibly some surprise events to come!
What are we doing? Last year, we completely replaced and installed a new water system for the camp. Gone are the days of "Cold Showers" and "Low Water Pressure". That's a thing of the past! THIS YEAR, we're putting in new septic and electrical... support for larger RV's and more RV Spaces that are clearly defined!
How can you get involved? We have a ton of minor projects too - and these will be announced through the Season.
Continue to pray with us as we embark on this endeavor. Building a better camp, to stand the test of time, while we wait for the Lord's return. We promise in 2023 you'll see some amazing improvements as we navigate this Season of Change.
Suspension of Volunteer Requests
Released August 20th 2021
Mineral still remains under evacuation and all volunteers (with the exception of Pastor Loren and Lani) have left the grounds. Phil and Lee are on standby to come up as needed. In their place, the National Guard has sent up a Kitchen Crew to fill the gap.
With that being said, we are suspending the call for volunteers and thank all of you for your willingness to help.
As of right now the camp continues to maintain its function as a heliattack base for CalFire and the National Guard. The DixieFire is still in close proximity to the camp, thus the sustained evacuation order.
Lastly, as of today – to assist with aiding fire operations, the entire Lassen National Forest has closed its camps and recreation facilities to the public to ensure safety.
Please continue to keep all of those involved in your prayers. We will update the public as more information comes in.
Due to the ongoing developments surrounding the #DixieFire - and out of an abundance of caution, Stan Wagner and the Camp Board have felt it will be best to cancel this year's senior camp 2021. We are saddened by this development, but are confident this is the correct course of action.
All camps scheduled after August 21st are still on schedule. We understand this is a fluid situation and will update our social media channels as more information comes in.
If you have any questions regarding your registration fees or would like to hold your spot for next year's Senior Camp 2022 (dates TBA) please contact Judi Woodard by phone at (408) 205-7547, or by email at email@example.com.
Please continue to pray for the Camp, the Firefighting personnel, all of those who have lost so much... as well as those who are still in harm's way.
As we continue to balance the health and safety of our campers, as well as provide unique facilities to experience God and proclaim the Gospel; we are taking the Governors guidelines seriously. As of this last update (06/27/20) here's what we are doing and have accomplished.
It is important to note, that as of 06/27/20 - we have written approval from the National Forest Service as well as Tehama County Public Health, to open and operate in accordance to our COVID-19 plan. (Which the entirety of the plan may be read below).
