We believe in going to camp! Camp is a great place for students to step away from their busy lives at home and grow in their relationships with God. Camp also serves to foster closer relationships – between students, between leaders and students, and in bringing in students who have not yet been involved in a church.
SBCC Youth Ministries go to Forest Home for a weekend in the winter, and a week in the summer. We’ve been going to Forest Home as a church since 1995. We LOVE it there!

We have opened registration for Forest Home Summer Camp for ALL FOUR GROUPS.
This year, everything is happening ONLINE. (We expect a few bugs and need for troubleshooting, so please bear with us as we are still getting used to doing it this way). Our hope is that this will be a quick and easy process moving forward.

I had to pay a deposit to sign up. How and when do I pay my balance?
- You must pay your balance by June 1st. You may pay by check or electronically.
- To pay by check, please make it out to “SBCC” or “Santa Barbara Community Church”, and send it to Kathy Roberts, 41 S. Ontare Rd, Santa Barbara, CA 93105, and please indicate for which student(s) the payment is designated.

Do you have any scholarships available?
- Strictly speaking, we do not have any “scholarships” (i.e. funds set aside for people to apply for).
- That said, we do not want money to stop anyone from going to camp and will work with any family to figure it out. From payment plans to help with fees, we can help get your student there.
