    Tearing Down Walls, Rebuilding Lives

    The caring community is what sets The Ridge apart from other youth camps. Our qualified counselors from Word of Life Bible Institute are committed to helping campers step away from life’s hardships and encounter the hope of Jesus Christ. Students who come to camp with hurts, heartache, and unhealthy habits walk away with biblical truths to help them navigate their daily lives. 

    Life Change

    quote icon
    “I learned I don’t have to worry about my future because God is in control. Even when we are stranded in this broken world, He is with us. I made a decision at the campfire to throw away the sin, the past, and let God take control.

    “I think it’s important for kids to go to camp to learn more about God and grow closer to Him – to have fun, but also to learn while they’re here.”
