Camps and Retreat Centers
The Diocese of California is blessed with outstanding camp and retreat facilities. St. Dorothy’s Rest and The Bishop’s Ranch are both in Sonoma County. St. Dorothy’s Rest, founded over 100 years ago, provides welcoming facilities and gathering spaces in the redwood hills of western Sonoma County. The Bishop’s Ranch, a gift to the diocese from its original owners, is located near Healdsburg in wine country. The Ranch offers a range of accommodations for a variety of retreats and events. Both facilities accommodate individual or group retreats throughout the year. St. Columba Retreat House, Inverness, and St. Edmund’s, Pacifica, also offer space for retreats and events.
For youth, attending a church camp is one of the most important and memorable ways to experience relationship with God through community, fun, and the beauty of creation. The Bishop’s Ranch and St. Dorothy’s Rest offer extensive summer camp programs for children of all ages. For more information, link to the DioCal Camps page or click on the links below.
