About Us


Our Ministry


At Jenness Park, God is changing lives for Kingdom growth. As hands are raised high in genuine worship and the Word of God is proclaimed from the chapel, lives are being renewed in the Lord. As campers explore nature and gaze at the stars in the night sky, God is whispering that He is the Creator of all things. And, as the bell rings it echoes throughout the camp that another has confessed Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.


Our Campus


Jenness Park Christian Camp is a beautiful year-round camp located in the Sierra Nevada mountains that has been dedicated to meeting the spiritual needs of campers for more than 60 years. Owned and operated by the California Southern Baptist Convention, the camp provides everything needed to escape the stresses of one’s routine and to enjoy the beauty of the great outdoors – God’s creation. With a staff committed to servant leadership and an opportunity to breathe fresh mountain air, those who visit will leave re-energized spiritually, emotionally, and physically.

Our Mission


Reach The Lost: Reaching the Lost is all about the Great Commission. In addition to the various retreats and camps that we put on each year, our facilities are available to rent for groups to use for outreach and discipleship.

Equip Believers: Equipping the Believer is a focus on providing opportunities for churches to equip their members for greater service to God.

Restore His Servants: Restoring HIS Servants is our way of saying “thank you” to those serving as pastors. Pastors can come and stay at Jenness Park year-round at a significantly reduced rate so they can have time alone with God or have an inexpensive family vacation. Pastoral Getaways
