Weekend Retreats

There are a variety of ways to serve at a weekend retreat, such as:

Foodservice: Preparing or serving meals - Typically Friday dinner through Sunday breakfast.

Operations: A little of everything as needed, including check-in, helping move campers' belongings, washing dishes, & clean-up. 

Activities: Leading or assisting in the following.

  • High Ropes Challenge Course (climbing wall, zip line, & Big Swing)
  • Low Ropes Challenge Course (team-building) 
  • Marksmanship (archery, BB guns, tomahawks) 
  • Crafts
  • Games

If you have personally experienced how fun and meaningful a retreat like these can be, please consider coming out to help us facilitate a God-honoring, family-building weekend.

Meals and accommodations are provided.

Volunteers may arrive on Friday any time after 3pm, and stay through noon Sunday. Yes, you can just do Saturday or any other time period that works best for you or your group.

Just let us know your schedule!

Service Projects

Due to the tragic 2011 and 2015 fires, we will be rebuilding our camp again. We are in need of supplies, donations, and volunteers.

We have a long list of volunteer projects just waiting for you!  They range from painting to plumbing and electrical or construction.  There are even projects you can build at home and assemble at camp, such as bunk beds, picnic tables, cabinets, etc.

Check out our scheduled workday events here!

If you can help in any way please contact Ron Hunt at ron@wildernessridge.com or call (512) 237-4442.

Seasonal / Long-Term Service

We regularly accommodate groups with a purpose of serving either Camp Wilderness Ridge or the local Bastrop/Smithville community, such as:

We have over 16 RV spots on our CWR-West facility.

We also accept applications for individuals, couples, or families who desire to give a season of their life to serve at Camp Wilderness Ridge. 

If you are interested in any of these opportunities, email ron@wildernessridge.com or call (512) 237-4442.
