Summer Camp

Galilee’s summer camping program helps youth develop deep relationships with their peers, caring counselors, the natural world, and God. Campers are placed in Adventure Groups: a boys cabin and a girls cabin combined, with others the same age. Adventure Groups are led by a resident staff person and two counselors. Groups spend the week together kayaking on Lake Tahoe, rock climbing, camping out under the stars, making music and art, and much more! Galilee’s counselors and staff undergo a selective application process, including an in-depth background check, as well as a ten day Staff/Counselor training program.

Book a Retreat

Galilee offers a stunning location and cozy hospitality for your group of 12 to 70 people to come together, grow closer, and return home rejuvenated. We have accommodations in a variety of styles, from lodges to cabins, dorms to tipis. Our kitchen creates home-cooked meals made with love and quality ingredients. We consider meals an opportunity to be intentional about our health, wellness, and our impact on the environment. Our outdoor activities include beach time with swimming and kayaking, and an outdoor amphitheater with a view of the lake. Come breathe in the fresh air and discover what’s possible for your group while we take care of you!

Adult Programs

Galilee hosts a variety of retreat programs for adults including Body, Mind, and Soul in April, the Galilee Women’s Retreat over Labor Day Weekend, and a retreat for men called Awakening Man in August. These programs are supported by experienced facilitators to provide enriching experiences for retreat guests. Participants are empowered by the programs, nourished by the tasty and nutritious meals, and inspired by the beautiful scenery. Experiencing individual growth in a supportive community never felt so good.

“I LOVE the inclusion at camp. I love my boys having exposure to all types of people in the world while in such an environment of acceptance.”
