Jr. High

7th - 9th Graders

This camp is absolutely amazing. I met some of my life-long friends here and all the staff is so loving and gracious to every camper. Love this place❤️

 

Jr. High Camp

Our Jr. High programs give each camper an opportunity for lots of activity action combined with more in depth worship and Bible study. Zipping through the air on our Flying Squirrel and speeding around our go cart track, campers will experience real (not virtual) activity, as well as develop new and deeper friendships in a jam packed day.

Steppin' Up camp

Steppin’ Up Camp provides a great transition from Oasis to our Jr. High camps. This program  allows Oasis age campers to spend a week living in our Ridge camp area, playing new games,  and getting a taste of new activities that they can look forward to in the Jr. & Sr. High programs.  This camp balances familiar Oasis style programming with new Ridge experiences creating an  exciting program for campers to enjoy. There is so much more to explore and experience after  Oasis, you won’t want to miss the excitement that occurs during this amazing week!

1Why should I send my child to Pine Ridge?

Pine Ridge has helped children make unforgettable memories and life changing impacts since 1946! Through the years, we have a great track record of providing a safe and affordable summer camp for children and youth.

Summer camp has many benefits in all areas of life development. For instance, child experts agree that playing outside is very healthy and beneficial. Camp provides these types of real hands-on experiences and challenges. Our activities are not virtual, but they are live and real!

Summer camp also provides some great social development opportunities. Camp by design is structured for temporary communities to be developed. In other words, camp is a great place to meet new friends and grow other friendships deeper.

Camp will also be a place to try and learn new things. Besides our fun activities, campers might learn to build a fire, or study an ecosystem, or feed a goat. Eating healthy (yes, we still have food kids love) is also encouraged.

Finally, campers  will be challenged to consider the truths from God's Word. Along with this comes character growth and life changing decisions. We have heard parents tell us over the years that after a week at camp, their child might obey better or get along with siblings better.

All in all, summer camp at Pine Ridge is awesome. Kids that attend will create some memories that last forever, make some new friends, and be spiritually nurtured.
