Jr. High (7th-9th Grade)

This camp is absolutely amazing. I met some of my life-long friends here and all the staff is so loving and gracious to every camper. Love this place❤️


Junior High Overnight Camps

Our Jr. High overnight camp programs are designed to guide campers through the very formative years of finding their identity in Christ while growing into their independence in life. With housing in our rustic Ridge Camp, every camper will have opportunities for lots of activity action combined with more in depth worship and Bible study. Zipping through the air on our Zip Line and playing laser tag in the woods, campers will experience real (not virtual) activity, as well as develop new and deeper friendships in a jam packed day.

Additional Jr. High Camp Options — Aviation Camp

Have you ever wanted to fly a plane? This summer you could make that dream a reality at our Brand New Aviation Camp being offered at Pine Ridge! Aviation camp will allow campers to learn the basics of flight, controls, and even let them fly a plane! Campers will spend the majority of each day Monday through Friday training at SMAT (School of Missionary Aviation Technology) while spending each morning and evening on the Pine Ridge campus. During this week of exploring mission’s aviation, campers will experience ground lessons on pre-flight inspection as well as a briefing prior to each flight, during which the basic concepts of aerodynamics and aircraft control are explained in an abbreviated and simple format. Each camper will experience 3 flights during which the basic skills of ground maneuvering, climbs, level turns, and descents are perfected. Space is Limited!

Steppin’up — Late Elementary & Junior High

Steppin’ Up Camp provides a great transition from Oasis to our Jr. High camps. This program allows campers, grades 5-7, to spend a week living in our Ridge camp area, playing new games, and getting a taste of new activities that they can look forward to in the Jr. & Sr. High programs. This camp balances familiar Oasis style programming with new Ridge experiences creating an exciting program for campers to enjoy. There is so much more to explore and experience after Oasis, you won’t want to miss the excitement that occurs during this amazing week! The schedule for this week is shown on the Ridge Camp page and is Session 6.

Adventure Trip

If you are looking for a completely different camp experience, try our Adventure Trip. This week of camp calls and caters to the adventurous soul in all of us. This week involves an overnight trip to a rustic camp ground, rafting down the Pine River, cooking meals over a campfire, and some hiking. The focus of this camp will be to surround our campers in God’s creation, and through rigorous challenge, be stretched for growth in relationship with God and others. On the return to camp, campers will get to enjoy many of our amazing camp activities and games they have come to know and love at Pine Ridge. This will be an adventure they won’t want to miss.

Take Camp to the Next Level

Take camp to the next level by adding one of the following additional experiences to your camp week. Enjoy the daily fun of Christian camping while also spending specialized time trying out a new thing or improving on skills you may already have.


Campers will enjoy a daily trail ride, while also deepening their understanding of both horse and rider safety. Daily instruction will focus on emergency equine care, independent saddling, and bridling, as well as equitation.

Campers will get to take care of a horse and learn to saddle and ride it throughout the week. All equipment is included, but we do ask campers to bring their own boots/good riding shoes and extra-long pants to ride in. No prior riding experience is required.

Basic & Advanced Watersports

Our Water Sports program is for all of our water-loving campers that want to develop some mad skills. These campers receive daily sessions and personal instruction out on beautiful Pine Lake. Each program includes tubing, knee boarding, water skiing, and wakeboarding, along with a trip to Action Wake Park where your camper will learn how to ride the cable.

Advanced Water Sports is for campers that have prior experience in each discipline or has previously went through our basic class.

Battle Games

This emphasis is for those who want to take Pine Ridge battle activities to the next level! In addition to the laser tag activity that we offer battle games will provide campers with the ability to play paintball throughout the week! All equipment will be included as campers will learn battle strategies and how to work together as a team!


Campers will be taught how to catch “the BIG one”. Each day we will fish in Pine Lake with some seasoned pros guiding the way. Bring your own pole and tackle box or use Pine Ridge equipment. All experience levels are welcome!

Summer Camp Discounts

Pine Ridge strives to make camp as affordable as possible. However, we realize that families sometimes still need additional support. The first thing to consider is participating in one of our Camper Fundraisers. We have two Food sale fundraisers with dates in March and April, and we also have a Key Card fundraiser that can be done at anytime. With much gratitude to many friends of Pine Ridge, we are able to offer generous scholarships to help those that can not participate in a fundraiser. We have made a $40 scholarship request simple this year as a way to offset the significant price increase due to inflation. This simple, no application, request expires on April 30.
