Ponderosa Pines Christian Camp began as a dream in the heart of Pastor George Golden and Ventura Baptist Church in 1982. The vision was to have a camp that could be the catalyst for life changing experiences for students who were members of an association of churches called the Baptist Bible Fellowship. BBF churches throughout Southern California played a big role in the development of Ponderosa Pines during its formative years. Lewis McClendon was the founding Executive Director and served in that capacity for 14 years. He is now an active member of our Board of Directors. Ponderosa Pines began a transition in 1997 toward becoming a non-denominational ministry with a heavy emphasis on providing fully programmed camps.
