Our Primary Purpose is to
provide a safe environment where people can learn about God and His creation, develop healthy relationships, gain new skills, and have fun!
Located in the beautiful lush woods of the Santa Cruz Mountains. The camp is 9 miles north of Santa Cruz, off Highway 17. Founded in 1946, Camp Redwood Glen shares in the long history of Salvation Army camping, providing a safe environment for campers to escape from everyday activity to have fun, learn new skills, and deepen their relationship with Jesus Christ.
In order to support our summer ministry, we operate as a conference center from August-May. We welcome guests to come enjoy warm hospitality, delicious food, clean accommodations and beautiful, natural surroundings. Our property is a place of retreat, rich heritage, and God's rest. Additionally, our staff can accommodate your variable group needs for food, lodging, and programming.
Each group who attends as a guest joins the great cloud of witnesses who make it possible to send youth in need to summer camp!
