Take a Closer Look


Shepherd's Trail Retreat Center is a Catholic-Christian Retreat Center that serves ALL faith-based communities of Southern California. We are deeply rooted in Christ and abide by His teaching to be "Fishers of Men." With Christ as our anchor, we walk in His footsteps and yearn to spread His gospel to all that retreat here.



Our retreat center sprung to life in 2016 through God's grace. Our goal has always been to provide an encounter with God to all those seeking a retreat from the daily struggles in life. Our purpose is to serve our community through a traditional camping experience.

My kids had such a fun time at Shepherd's Trail Retreat Center. They could not stop raving about it when they returned home from their trip. They can't wait to return for the next church retreat.

Thank you to the amazing staff and personnel at Shepherd's Trail. Our group had a lovely experience and a deep spiritual connection with God during their time at Summer camp.

I absolutely loved the peaceful and vibrant feeling that this land brought to me. There were so many memorable moments during our retreat but I will never forget the beautiful views and bristling of the ancient oak trees.
