Sr. High

9th - 12th Graders

I went here from 6th grade all the way through high school and it was a great experience. I made new friends, learned new things, and had great memories. I love this camp!

 

Sr. High Camp

Pine Ridge provides plenty of time for Sr. High campers to connect with each other and build deep and real relationships while also pushing the bounds of energy at time with late night games, theme nights, competition, and general crazy fun. Our Sr. High program will focus on bearing good fruit for the life that God has prepared for them. Sr. High camps are housed on The Ridge where they stay in our tabit housing. Commonly known as platform tents, the tabits are more rustic and intimate allowing for campers to build close friendships.

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.
