About Camp Wilderness Ridge


Founded in 1987 through the vision and efforts of men of the Christian Service Brigade and Spring Branch Community Church in Houston, Camp Wilderness Ridge is an independent, non-denominational Christian summer camp and retreat center located in the heart of the Lost Pines of Central Texas.

Camp Wilderness Ridge is committed to providing a Christ-centered, affordable wilderness experience to young men and families.

Following devastating fires in 2011 and 2015, Wilderness Ridge, Inc ceased operating and transferred its' assets to Forest Glen Camps. Forest Glen is committed to carrying on the mission and vision of Wilderness Ridge by establishing similar facilities and programs at their Springs property in Rosebud, TX.
