What Parents Say

Camp Ridgecrest is unlike any other place on earth. It is steeped in tradition and built on joy of relationships with Jesus Christ. Camp is about truly living life! It is about living life the way God intended it, to the full. The adventures, friendships, and fun at camp are unbelievable…but don’t take our word for it, listen to what some of our parents say:

“Our son met some great young men his age that are pursuing God. He loved the outdoor activities. He spent some quality time seeking God himself. Camp is a wonderful experience.” Dan—Lexington, Kentucky

“Being away from home for the first time, he had a wonderful time spiritually and socially. He learned so much from his counselors.” Ann—Columbia, South Carolina

“He had a wonderful time, he wants to stay even longer next year. Our son loved the small cabin groups where he got to know his friends and staff really well.” Jim—Marietta, Georgia

“Our son just enjoys the fact that camp is something that is his own. He is the youngest of three and camp is his special time and experience. He is growing more independent and learning to be more flexible to do what a group may want to do, not just what HE wants to do. Also he enjoys doing the activities that he doesn't get to do at home, i.e. horseback riding, canoeing, and “the blob"! (He finally did it!)” Joan—Boca Raton, Florida

“Our child learned independence and had an opportunity to meet new friends. He also learned new skills he would have never learned at home.” Debbie—Jackson, Tennessee

“Our son loved the independence and the fellowship with both his old and new friends. He especially enjoyed the leadership opportunities. He enjoyed having the chance to experience events that he had not before, i.e. white water rafting, camping out in the mountains, mountain biking. He loved having a true "wild at heart" experience. I believe he also enjoyed being amidst other kids, both peers & leadership that loved the Lord.” Pam—Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida
