Looking for a family vacation that satisfies the whole family without all of the stress of planning? Want to lend a hand? Join us in the Spring for our Helping Hands Family Camp weekend! When you come to Thousand Pines Christian Family Camp you will have the chance to escape the regularity of everyday life and enjoy a place where your family can bond together over fun-filled recreation and spiritual teaching. We strive to provide the finest Family Camp California has to offer, complete with a chapel experience for all ages. Our chapel times offer something for everyone, with our guest band leading a worship time for the whole family, followed by age-specific Bible teaching. Adults and teens stay in the chapel to hear from our guest speakers while children are dismissed to their classes for activities and lessons. Plan your afternoon free time together; enjoy a nap, take advantage of the local attractions, have a blast at our recreation venues, and join an old camp tradition of preparing our camp for the seasons ahead. We will have a work time where you and your family can join a team for a Saturday work project!
Your entire family will benefit from the weekend we have planned for you. Hope to see you this Memorial Day weekend!

Michael’s a regular guy whose top joys are following Jesus, loving his wife Julie, and being Daddy to daughters Brooklyn and Haylie. When not snow skiing, fishing, wakeboarding, or coaching baseball, you’ll find him enjoying the simplicity of mountain life in a baseball cap, flannel shirt, and cowboy boots. He currently serves as Lead Pastor of FBC Big Bear Valley where he’s known for his direct, yet humorous teaching style and his unapologetic love for Jesus!
I'm a passionate follower of Jesus, a lucky husband to my sweetheart, Judy; a father of three amazing kids and five grandkids, and I've been a pastor since ESPN first began broadcasting and Dukes of Hazzard was popular. I enjoy anything outdoors and active; find cats and spreadsheets annoying; I'm a sucker for real-life romantic stories, and I dig puns.
