Facilities & Location

Gold Creek Center

Prior to the Woolsey Fire in November 2018 that devastated the Shalom Institute’s gorgeous Malibu campus, which is only 5 miles from the Pacific ocean and 45 minutes from Los Angeles, Camp JCA Shalom offered expansive facilities.

We are in the process of recovery and rebuild and hope to be in Malibu as soon as we can. As our facilities have been changing we also continue to change and evolve over the years to meet the needs of our core values.

For Summer 2022, we are excited to return to our home away from home, the beautiful 270 acre campus of the Gold Creek Center in the Angeles National Forest, just minutes from Los Angeles. The Gold Creek Center currently offers the following activities for campers to enjoy:

  • Double Zip Line & Climbing Wall
  • Nearby Horse Center & Riding Trails
  • Arts & Crafts Center
  • Organic Garden
  • Dining Hall & Health Center
  • Nestled in the mountains
  • Gaga Pit
  • Outdoor Recreation Areas
  • Indoor Meeting Spaces
  • Comfortable Housing
  • Sports & Archery Fields
  • Basketball Courts — Indoor and Outdoor
  • Pioneer Living Center
  • Our neighbors are Reptacular Ranch with over 300 animals
  • and much, much, more!

Camp Gesher is available for rentals – filming, parking, nature walks, team building, day retreats. Interested in hosting an event at our locations?
