Refresh in the Redwoods

Mission Springs invites you and your family to be refreshed in the redwoods. Our hope and prayer is that while at camp, you will renew your wonder, revive your faith, and refocus your purpose in Christ.

A “Glamping” Experience

We are blessed to be able to offer a glamping experience. What does this mean? You don’t have to hassle with packing and setting up a tent or camping stove, nor do you need to sleep on the ground. Instead, toss a sleeping bag, pillow, towel, and toiletries in your car and be greeted by a comfortable bed in one of our rooms at the conference center!
