My son is absolutely in love with Pine Ridge Bible Camp! Last year was his first time ever at an overnight camp. He was a bit scared at first, but by the time the week was over he DID NOT want to leave. He asks every day, “How many more days until I go back to Pine Ridge?”.
Children’s Overnight Camp
Our overnight summer camps for kids buzz with energy, motion, and noise! These campers are ready to hit the ground running just as soon as they arrive at Pine Ridge, and our staff will be ready to run right alongside of them. Campers will be challenged spiritually to take personal ownership of their faith as they learn how to study God’s word and apply it to their own life.
Most of our camp sessions are 5-night camps with check-in on Monday morning and check-out on Saturday morning. However, we also offer a 2-night camp for the younger grades. Campers will stay in our Oasis cabins which offer bunk beds and an attached restroom.
New for 2024! Oasis programming will include pathway choices for your camper to choose from. The campers will choose according to what they want to participate in for an allotted period of time each day of the week. This decision will be made the first evening of camp. Examples of some of the pathways that will be offered are sports, crafts, outdoor skills, animal care, canoeing, and drama.
Prime Time — Youth Camp
We know that for many of the campers this will be their first overnight experience away from home. This step of independence is a huge step in life. So, we carefully select Cabin Leaders that will be attentive to the physical, emotional, and social needs of the campers, and our cabin groups for these young campers stick together and try each of the age appropriate activities as a group.
The chapels and teaching times are tailored toward introducing the camper on how to use their Bible and discover the truths of Bible stories that come alive through exciting teaching, drama, and songs filled with motions that the campers will continue singing even after they leave camp.
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 dates and price for Steppin’ Up are shown on the Jr High page.
Horsemanship Camp Overnight Horse Camp in Michigan
Horsemanship with a purpose! This add-on, for campers entering 4th grade or higher, has a focus towards those with little to no experience. The instructional time will include safety measures, learning to care for a horse, leading the horse on a walk, trail rides, grooming, and tacking if comfortable.
