El Camino Pines Cabin Restoration

July 2016 Benevolence of the Month


In the 1960’s men from Trinity Santa Barbara took the lead in building the chapel, dining hall, and cabins of El Camino Pines. The construction picture above shows the beans of the dining hall being placed. It was an intense building effort with our men spending many hours of labor. This retreat center, located near Frazer Park in the Los Padres forest, is now a year round retreat and conference center hosting weekend retreats, Outdoor School Program, and Summer and Winter camps. TELC youth and men attend events at this camp each year. The cabins are in need of renovation. The remodeling is in process with 5 of the 10 cabins completed. Donations collected for this July Benevolence of the month will go towards cabin completing the cabin restoration process.
