Swim as a family, play one of our famous Camp-Wide games, go hiking together, visit our crafts lodge or ceramics studio, enjoy fantastic food, sit by a campfire, rock in a rocking chair, shoot a rifle, or learn to shoot the bow and arrow. Family Camp is held over Labor Day Weekend, September 4-September 7.

YEAR-ROUND PROGRAMS: Do you ever have trouble thinking of something to do with your daughter? What does valuable time with your daughter look like? We have a great option! We are excited to provide you with an opportunity to join your daughter at camp and share life changing experiences and fun memories.

You can act like a kid again by going off the Blob or down the zipline and slide at the lake, sneaking through the woods playing Sockwar, sitting around the campfire on a cool fall evening, having a paint war on the green, challenging yourself on the climbing wall, painting pottery in the ceramics studio, learning to shoot a bow and arrow or rifle and so much more. The best part about this…you can do it all with your daughter!

Aside from the activities, you’ll be able to experience God’s love through His creation, hear from God’s Word, and have devotional times with your daughter. Camp Crestridge is not simply a place where your girls can grow as individuals; it’s a place where you can grow together as a family! Our Mother & Daughter Camp will be August 21-23. Registration is open!

Give your child the experience of a lifetime this summer at SuperCamp. They'll love Outdoor Adventure Day, which is all about goal setting and overcoming fears, learning to work as a team, building trust and rapport with new people and exercising leadership skills.

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: Available in both Junior and Senior Forum, this program is designed specifically for our return students to go deeper into the SuperCamp curriculum. We place them in situations where they can mentor other students by modeling the 8 Keys of Excellence and academic strategies to their peers. Our team leaders give Leadership Track students focused coaching on topics like what makes a good leader opportunities to step out of their comfort zone in front of the group situations where they can display initiative and practice communication and critical thinking moments to practice their leadership style with other teens feedback on where they’re doing well and where they can grow, building their confidence in their abilities. Students in the Leadership Track come home feeling challenged and empowered to live up to their full potential and to assume leadership roles in many areas of their lives.

YEAR-ROUND PROGRAMS: SuperCamp doesn't end after the summer. Our year-long grad support makes sure your student is able to stay on track throughout the school year. We also invite our grads to come back and step into a leadership role at SuperCamp the following summer by enrolling in Leadership Track. (see description under Leadership above).

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Ridgecrest Summer Camps: Impacting lives for God’s glory through discipleship and adventure. Located in the Blue Ridge Mountains of NC, our camps are designed for individual attention, maximum fun, and the safety of each child. We facilitate camper growth by offering a Christian camp program that has been around for 130 combined years.

Camp Ridgecrest for Boys and Camp Crestridge for Girls each offer 25+ activities taught by solid Christian role models. Our staff are highly trained, committed believers with a heart for children/youth ministry. Both camps are accredited by the American Camp Association and Christian Camp and Conference Association.

Join us for an unforgettable experience of fun encompassing physical, mental, social, and spiritual growth.

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: Available to 17 year olds at Camp Ridgecrest for Boys. The SALT Program is for former campers or those new to camp who wish to be part of camp life, but more importantly seek to develop leadership, service, and discipleship abilities.

SALT participants live together under the supervision of a director who is typically upperclassmen in college or a college graduate. Spaces are limited to 7-10 per session. Sessions last 4 weeks.

The cost of the program is $800 (a quarter of what it would cost as a camper). This money goes back into the SALT program to pay for their trips, entertainment and basic needs in order to increase the quality of their time and training while at camp.

The SALT program has three main components: service, discipleship, and fellowship. The camp administration sees this as a vital part of developing the long-term leadership of Camp Ridgecrest and beyond. SALT positions are typically given by Christmas.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: Limited Scholarships are available. E-mail rscamps[AT]ridgecrestcamps.com to receive a Scholarship Application.

FAMILY CAMP SESSION(S): You have seen the life change in your campers after a 2 or 4 week experience with Ridgecrest Summer Camps. Now imagine spending a long weekend with your entire family at Camp!

Stay together in a cabin with your own restrooms, and enjoy a weekend in the mountains. Swim as a family, play one of our famous Camp-Wide games, go hiking together, visit our crafts lodge or ceramics studio, enjoy fantastic food, sit by a campfire, rock in a rocking chair, shoot a rifle, or learn to shoot the bow and arrow. Family Camp will take place over Labor Day Weekend, August 29-September 1.

YEAR-ROUND PROGRAMS: We are creating a chance for you to share the Camp Ridgecrest experience with your son. Each summer at camp, your boy creates life changing memories and moments that help shape him into a Godly young man. We believe that it is important to provide dads with an opportunity to join your sons in this journey that can’t be replicated anywhere else.

Join us as we let "boys-be-boys" by playing hard, creating relationships, and experiencing God’s love in the middle of His creation. Dads, let us help set you up as the hero in your son’s life. Build your relationship through shared experiences that can only happen here.

Imagine you and your son Blobbing together, going off the zip line, down the slide, through the mud pit, up the climbing wall, around the campfire, down the trail, and in the cabin. Imagine playing Sockwar on the same team, throwing water balloons, going fishing, shooting a rifle or a bow and arrow. Imagine praying together, asking questions and actually getting answers.

Camp Ridgecrest is not simply a place where your boys can grow as individuals; it’s a place where you can grow together as a family. Father & Son Camp will take place August 22-24. Registration is open!

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Active Learning Services, Ltd operates enrichment programs designed to stimulate creative thinking, improve thinking, logic and memory skills and give children "thinking alternatives" to sports camps and other summer programs. Our programs include chess programs and camps thru USA Chess, Our Gamebuilder Video Game Creation Programs and our Active Learning Computer Enrichment Programs.

Our staff is, comprised of the best children's chess instructors in North America! The USA Chess camps are uniquely qualified to cater to the needs of the advanced scholastic player as well as the true beginner. USA Chess hit its first milestone in the summer of 2000 producing the largest chess camp ever held in the United States, with more than 250 students enrolled. What was most surprising, however, was the amount of absolute beginners in attendance - more than 50% of the total enrollment was just starting to play chess. This realization led to the national rollout tour of 100 camps in more than 70 cities. The annual tours have been immensely successful with several thousand campers attending this year alone.

USA Chess thrives on providing a structured environment that is extremely conducive to learning chess. We handpick the best children's chess instructors from all over the United States and bring them to each camp. We believe our team is most effective in teaching chess to children of all ages and levels. The exceptional organization and ever-fun curriculum has fueled much interest from scholastic players and coaches from around the country, prompting them to request USA Chess camps in their areas.

At the same summer camp locations, we also offer the immensely popular Gamebuilder Video Game Creation Camps, The Active Learning Computer Animation Programs, and other Computer Enrichment Programs such as Modding, Networking and Hosting with Minecraft. We now offer seven unique programs in all.

At these camps, children are assigned a computer for the week; they spend the week learning to create their own one-of- a- kind video games in our Gamebuilder Camps, Animation Projects in our Animation Camps, also Modding, Networking and Hosting with Minecraft.
