placing people in an atmosphere where they feel close to God, challenging them with His Word and seeing them make a decision that will change their lives and those around them

-Henrietta Mears, Founder of Forest Home


The Henrietta Mears Society has been established to recognize and honor the generosity of ministry partners who have invested in changed lives for eternity by investing in Forest Home’s future.

Who is Henrietta Mears?

Henrietta Mears had an indomitable spirit. In 1938, she had a big dream to open a camp in the San Bernardino Mountains with the hope that people of all ages could come to Forest Home, hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ and be forever changed. Each year at Forest Home, over 45,000 campers have the opportunity to encounter Jesus, experience transformation and leave ready to engage the world.
