Pathfinder Ranch is a private, nonprofit organization affiliated with the Boys and Girls Club of Palm Springs. Location: 4500 feet, near Idyllwild, in the mountains above Palm Springs, 1 1/2 hours from San Diego. Our 72 acre camp borders the San Bernardino National Forest and is well suited for the outdoor activities that are taught during our outdoor education school.
