Some say it's the happiest place on Earth...
Alpine is a Christian Summer Camp and Conference Center in Southern California, up in the beautiful San Bernardino Mountains, near Lake Arrowhead, CA. Alpine’s sleepaway programs for Jr. High, High School and Elementary are chock full of fun activities for kids.
The highly-intentional overnight summer program for kids makes us one of the best camps for kids in Southern California. Also, our sweet mountain retreat center offers an annual Men’s Conference, Women’s Retreats, Leadership Retreats and more!
If you’re looking for an historic place for your mountain conference center needs, then enjoy a warm drink and sit by the same fireplace that Clark Gable, Shirley Temple, Fred Astaire, Bette Davis and many more have enjoyed!
For those looking for Leadership Programs, we have a multi-faceted High Ropes Course that boasts the tallest free-standing natural element in North America!
Last, but not least, our Outdoor Education program combines the science camp curriculum you’d expect with the fun of instructional staff in frontier-themed costume! Learn how to start a fire with no matches, use a bow & arrow and tomahawks, as well as studying Animal Adaptation and Wilderness Survival.

Alpine's Men's Retreat 2017


What does a man of God look like? Becoming one doesn't happen by accident, it starts with an active pursuit of what God calls us to. Paul in his first letter to Timothy, gives a road map that leads to a life reflecting our Creator. This fall, we will pursue what it means to be a Man of God, following the example of Paul, Timothy, and Jesus Christ himself. Join us!

Frank Sontag


Men’s Retreat

Frank Sontag has always blazed his own trail. Growing up in an Italian-American neighborhood in Cleveland, he and his family moved to the Los Angeles area in the mid-1960s when he was nine years old.

Precocious for his age—he skipped fourth grade—he was the product of the do-your-own-thing, love-the-one-you’re-with attitude of the Sixties. He worked in supermarkets during his twenties while pursuing pleasure. A horrific motorcycle accident in 1984 should have killed him, but he survived, which set him on a quest to find out why he was still alive.

His search led him to a grab bag of spiritual philosophies, with New Age thought leading the way. A career change into Los Angeles radio gave him the opportunity to host a Sunday night talk show called Impact on the biggest classic rock station in Los Angeles—KLOS 95.5 FM. For twenty-one years, Frank led a region-wide discussion on spirituality that was open to all faiths and all philosophies, except for one based on a Savior who died on a cross nearly 2,000 years ago.

Little did Frank know that Jesus Christ was calling him on a different line.
