Since 1956, San Marcos Christian Camp has been ministering in the name of Jesus Christ to people across the Pacific Central Coast and beyond. Tens of thousands have joined the Kingdom, countless others have renewed their walk, and many others are serving in churches and on mission across the globe- all because they came to a place set apart where God spoke to their hearts.

​Since 1956, people just like you have understood the vision of San Marcos, that vision to reach boys and girls, men and women, with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Their response has been to share of their time, talents, and treasures to further this ministry. We invite you to join them!
