Early teen years involve a time of change, transition, and seeking. Our Jr. High programs focus on camper’s identity in Christ and who He made them to be, not what others might say they should be. They will be challenged by dynamic speakers in chapels, asked to develop deeper relationships with Christ, and grow through personal devotion time in God's Word. Jr. High is where we allow campers to choose their own free times, choose their preferred activities, and learn to interact with a wide variety of other campers and staff.
Jr. High camps are based out of our Ridge Camp. The Ridge offers a more rustic camp experience as campers stay in structures called Tabits. Tabits, commonly known as platform tents, create a more intimate cabin feel where campers really connect with each other and their counselor. There is a modern bath house a short walking distance from the Tabit locations. Jr. High camp sessions offer many different options as this is one of our largest camper populations. Get the good ol fashioned camp experience with our Jr. High Classic camp. This camp session allows each camper to experience all of the great activities and games we have to offer leaving just enough time left over to get some sleep. Want to get a little more out of your week? Good. Our Jr. High Xtreme camp is the perfect remedy. This session offers optional, but in-depth, activities that can take your week to a whole new level. For a small additional activity fee you get all the classic camp flare with a little kick. Our Xtreme options include Battle Games (Laser Tag & Airsoft), Horsemanship, and Water Sports. If you are looking for a completely different experience try our Jr. High Adventure camp on for size. This camp involves a 2 day, 1 night camp out at PJ Hoffmaster State Park where we play some fun games on the trail system and enjoy the beautiful sandy beaches on Lake Michigan before coming back to Pine Ridge for all the other activities. No matter how you slice it Pine Ridge has what you are looking for.
