Who We Are:

We are a year-round camp and retreat center in the Cleveland National Forest, outside of San Juan Capistrano, California. Our 160 acre site operates a residential summer camp, specialized weekend retreats, and hosts groups from all over Southern California. Lazy W Ranch is a Camp & Retreat Ministry of the California-Pacific Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church.

At Lazy W Ranch, we absolutely believe in the power of camping to change lives.  That is why we commit ourselves to providing the best and most loving Christian hospitality possible so that you might encounter the Creator God and grow in your faith. Whether it be for church, family or youth, personal or group retreats, or just a quick getaway for a time of refreshing, we want to offer Lazy W Ranch as that “sacred space” where you are sure to be revived.


Our Camp & Retreat Ministry is:

Christ Centered * Program Driven * Relationally Based *Culturally Relevant
