CLOSED Al BAhr Shrine Camp

Shrine Camp Sign

****** 2019 Update *******
Shrine Camp is forever closed. After extensive litigation with several parties an agreement was reached with the approval of Al Bahr membership. This agreement closed Shrine Camp and turned the leased land back over to USFS for cleanup. Al Bahr will forever miss this great location and place to have Fun and Fraternity. We have reached the end of the era for Shrine Camp on Mt Laguna.

****** 2016 Update *******
Currently Shrine Camp is closed. Al Bahe Shrine is working closely with USFS to find a way to reopen the campgrounds. As of Jan 2016 the camp is no longer open to the public and Al Bahr does not hold a use lease with USFS. People that still have cabins on the grounds are allowed limited access based on the type of cabine remaining. All others should not be on the grounds unless cleared by USFS.

***** Currently Shrine Camp is closed. It will remain closed to the public during the clean up and rebuilding phases. At this time Shrine Camp residents have been granted limited access. Please read the update below. *****

********** 2015 Update **********

The cleanup of the burned areas is complete and the USFS has approved the cleanup. Al Bahr has applied for a new use permit for the land as the old use permit was no longer valid. Very little specific information can be released with the ongoing litigation. As information becomes available we will communicate it to the Nobility.

********** 2013 Update **********

To our Shrine Camp Residents, At the end of July we met with USFS representatives at camp and we were given an all clear as far as the removal of debris and contaminents. The Forestry asked that we do some erosion abatement to subdue runoff while the soild continues to recover. This is currently underway and consists of straw waddles and wood chips being placed on some of the slopes.

We now have limited access to the Mountain for the purpose of retrieving items from cabins or performing maintenance. This can include weed whacking and other external chores. Please remember to bring your own water.

You are not permitted to use your cabins for overnight stays.

There is still a lock on the entrance, so access is limited. We are putting together a schedule of dates and will publish via e-mail as soon as it is complete.

Work continues with our consultants and attorneys on many issues ranging from insurance values, replacement costs, restoration of services, rebuilding infrastructure, and ensuring that they have all the information required to petition for the best settlement on our behalf.

We are still planning to have a town hall meeting to provide you the latest updates and allow time for questions as soon as we have the needed informations from our consulting teams.

Thank you all for your patience, this is a huge undertaking with several moving parts.

If you have any questions please feel free to e-mail me.
