Health and Safety

For more information specific to our summer camp program’s response to COVID-19, please follow this link.

As COVID-19 remains a global health concern, we continue take the health and safety of our visitors, staff, and community seriously and are vigilant in our efforts to promote safety through proper cleaning, careful observation, and transparent communication.

Based on CDC recommendations, we focus on prevention through frequent handwashing, social distancing, masking, and quick reporting of health concerns. Additionally, we follow recommendations from the Riverside County Health Department, including those that call for limiting services and closures. 

Should developments occur that affect your current or future time with us, we will notify you or your group immediately.  

Thank you for doing your part in keeping our communities safe and healthy.

Finding New Connections

Nestled against the San Jacinto Mountains in Garner Valley, Pathfinder Ranch provides visitors of all ages and backgrounds opportunities to relax, reflect, and reconnect. 

Pathfinder Ranch was founded in 1964 to provide an escape from the desert summer heat for the Palm Springs Boy’s Club (now the Palm Springs Boy’s and Girl’s Club). We have since grown to provide Camps, Outdoor Education, and Retreat Rental programs – all while staying true to our mission to connect people to nature and each other.

Pathfinder Ranch is easily accessible from surrounding cities such as Palm Springs, Temecula, and Hemet. However, our location next to the San Bernardino National Forest also provides stunning vistas, incredible views of the night sky, and access to open, natural spaces.

Pathfinder Ranch is a 501(c)(3) corporation and is accredited by the American Camping Association (ACA).
