Located right on the tip of the Zephyr Point on Lake Tahoe, this camp and conference center is a place here the fabric is thin between heaven and earth. Since 1925 this Presbyterian Conference Center has provided rest, rejuvenation and recreation for thousands. From its humble origin, when guests camped in tents on a rugged lakeside, Zephyr Point has grown into one of the leading cross-cultural and ecumenical Christian Centers in the nation.

    Zephyr Point’s history began during the Roaring Twenties when the Presbyterian Synod of California was contemplating new and inspirational experiences for its young people. Dr. Robert Donaldson of the Board of National Missions in San Francisco Presbytery scheduled the first Young People’s Conference at Lake Tahoe for the summer of 1924.


 Thousands have gained inspiration in faith, enjoyed the wonders of God in nature, and enhanced or established Christ-centered lives. The spectacular location has served as the background for hundreds of groups, courses, and conferences embracing faith, life, and Christian influences.

    A half-mile of private shoreline, unparalleled access to the mountains, lakes, and rivers of the Sierra Nevada mountains, and proximity to South Lake Tahoe, Carson City, and Reno make Zephyr a special place. 


“Zephyr Point is a haven where God’s presence seems to reach out from the snowy mountains and the deep blue lake to drape the world-weary visitors in a profound peace.”
