Comfortable Amenities at The Ridge

Campers stay in cozy cabins with the best cabinmates and counselors around. Cabin assignments are made before arrival, so be sure to make any special requests ahead of time by logging in online.

Groups are automatically housed together as much as possible, unless you let us know that you prefer to mix it up!

Experience The Ridge

At The Ridge, high-energy speakers, music and activities give students the opportunity to learn biblical truth while having the time of their lives playing paintball, riding horses, boating, climbing the tower, learning archery, making new friends, and much more. Campers will have an unforgettable week as they experience new things and grow deeper in their faith.


Never run out of things to do.

What if you could spend a week of your summer doing everything from throwing tomahawks and water tubing to wrestling in mud pits and scaling climbing walls? You might say that’s the wildest thing you’ve ever heard. And we’d have to agree because we have all that and MORE at The Ridge!

Specialty Camps

Kick the winning soccer goal! Make a slam dunk! Hit a home run! Whatever you aspire to do–let’s focus on that! Specialty Camps allow campers to enjoy the full program at The Ridge with an extra-special focus on their favorite activity. Think of it as a custom-ordered camp experience!

Meals at The Ridge

All our meals are served buffet style--and we don’t want anyone to leave hungry! Campers can eat as much as they like and are always welcome to grab candy or snacks at the Snack Shack between meals.

A well-balanced diet is served throughout the week and meals are prepared under strict supervision, using the finest quality ingredients. If your camper has food allergies, email to receive an Allergen Guide. Learn more about addressing food allergies at camp in our FAQs.

Programs and Meetings

At The Ridge, we want to see every young person make the life-changing decision to accept Christ as their personal Savior, grow closer in relationship with Him, and develop the desire and tools to share their faith with others. Every element of camp is designed with this in mind.

Campers will connect with God and grow in their faith as they hear from engaging speakers, experience dynamic worship, learn biblical truth, receive encouragement from godly counselors, and develop new friendships. At Word of Life, we love nothing more than getting students excited about living their lives for Christ.
