meet our directors

All of our camp directors are full-time youth ministers who serve in the trenches at churches from across California. We believe that this gives us a unique and valuable glimpse into the spiritual and development needs of the teens who come to SoCal Teen Camp. Our camp directors meet throughout the year to pray for our students and staff, develop messages, plan activities and recruit high-quality staff who are dedicated to seeing students grow in their relationship with Jesus.
