About Zephyr Point
Since 1924 Zephyr Point Presbyterian Conference Center has provided rest, rejuvenation and recreation for thousands. From its humble beginnings when guests camped in tents on the rugged lakeside, Zephyr Point has developed into a modern Camp and Conference Center with a variety of housing options and meeting space that can accommodate groups of up to 300.
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.
For almost 100 years guests of Zephyr Point have grown in knowledge, gained inspiration for their faith, and enjoyed the wonders of God in nature through the rugged beauty of the Tahoe Basin.
