WHY CHOOSE CAMP WILDERNESS RIDGE?

 

OUR PRINCIPLES.  We live out biblical principles, share the Gospel, and teach about R.E.A.L. MANHOOD.

Reject passivity (Luke 9:23)
Eternal prospective (Matthew 6:19 & 1 Corinthians 4:18)
Accept responsibility (John 4:34)
Lead courageously (1 Corinthians 11:1)

 

OUR STAFF.  We strongly believe that “SUMMER CAMP IS ABOUT THE STAFF, NOT THE STUFF.”  This means that even if we have a great programming and activities, it’s really the staff that make the difference.

Our Summer Staff is made up of college age young men and adult men some paid and some volunteering their time.   Dads of camper or camper alumni.  The application process is very thorough, even for volunteers.  The process is a detailed application, interview, multiple references (each contracted), and background checks.  We seek out men of good character who have a passion to know Christ more and to make Him to others, (Phil. 3:8) a desire to a leader through serving others before himself, (Mark 10:45) and a drive to help train up the next generation of young men. (II Timothy 2:2).

OUR PRICE.  We about half the average for independent Texas summer camps!  Also, we believe in making Summer Camp accessible to all– Scholarships are available based upon need.

OUR ADVENTURE!!!  While playing tons fun camp games and activities, campers receive authentic experiences learning about and exploring the outdoors in a safe environment.  Your camper will remember this week of summer for the rest of his life!!!
