My staff and I do everything we can to ensure that our guests feel welcome, including being mindful about our guests’ dietary needs.

Summer season moves swiftly as groups roll in and out of Pilgrim Pines Camp & Conference Center. Often the facility hosts groups booked back to back. As one group leaves the entire campus is reset with fresh food and given a clean shine. As the camp’s Site Director Connie Clark says, “My staff and I do everything we can to ensure that our guests feel welcome, including being mindful about our guests’ dietary needs.”

As many facilities are no longer offering meal service, Pilgrim Pines Camp & Conference Center not only continues to offer home-cooked buffet style meals, but also focuses on providing meals for guests that have special dietary requirements. “We host groups ranging in size from 10 to 262 people looking for accommodations, though our average group size is 150 people.” Clark says.

In an interview with Amna Hussain, a recent guest of Pilgrim Pines Camp & Conference, she shares her groups appreciation for the facility accommodating requests. Hussain sits on the board of the Yaseen Educational Foundation and notes how difficult it can be to find a retreat center that will accommodate her group’s dietary needs and who are open to all types of groups the way Pilgrim Pines is. "We had a great time, the accommodations are super, and everyone went out of their way to make our stay wonderful," says Hussain.

The southern California camp offers pre-arranged free tours and to encourage new business, Site Director Connie Clark is offering a plate of fresh baked cookies upon arrival to new groups who book between October 1, 2019 and February 28, 2020.

Pilgrim Pines Camp & Conference Center is open year-round and offers lots of lodging options, recreational options including a swimming pool, basketball court, a walking labyrinth and more. Meal Service is available along with multiple meeting areas with both indoor and outdoor options.
