Basic Info & FAQs
When is Family Camp?
We are planning to host our Family Camp on Labor Day Weekend, September 1-4, 2023.
How do I register my family?
Just click on the register button at the bottom of this page. Only one person from the family will need to register, and you will be able to add family members to your registration. You will need to choose grade 12+ in order to access the Family Camp Registration.
How much does it cost?
If family is in one cabin together:
Ages 13 and older - $375, Ages 6-12 - $285, Ages 2-5 - $210, Age 1 and younger - Free
Families that share a cabin with another family get a 10% discount.
Where will we be staying?
Families will be staying in cabins or rooms at Camp Crestridge and Camp Ridgecrest. Families will be given their own private cabin at Crestridge, which includes 2 individual showers, 2 sinks, and 2 individual toilets. While most Family Camp activities take place at Camp Crestridge, we will also be offering cabins at Camp Ridgecrest for Boys. These cabins are clustered around 2 bathhouses, one serving men and one serving women. If you choose to share the cabin with another family, there will be a 10% discount for each family. There can be no more than 12 people in each cabin.
Do you have any COVID Guidelines?
Yes, please visit our Weekend Camps COVID Guidelines page for more info.
What will we be doing?
While we don't want to spoil the surprise, we will give you a little taste. We hope to create a Ridgecrest Summer Camps experience for you and your family to enjoy together. We want you to have an absolute blast, filled with adventure, fun, laughter, relaxation, learning, and growth. We desire that you grow closer together as a family, and ultimately closer to the Lord. It is our goal that this would be the best weekend of your year!
What to bring?
Don't worry, we will provide a more detailed packing list for all of our registered families before your stay. Here is a basic packing list to get you started.
Will we talk about God?
Yes, we will. While we hope to point everyone to Jesus, we also believe that it should be a fun experience. We don't do cheesy, and we try not to do awkward. We have found that our God is filled with adventure and we want to explore that with your families.
Are there any attendance guidelines?
There are many great family camps operating today, each with its own focus and attendance guidelines. Like other family camps, our program focus is designed with certain groups in mind. Our attendance guidelines include people related to one another by marriage (the uniting of one man and one woman in covenant commitment), blood, or adoption. And yes, this includes single-parent families!
Are there any minimum age requirements?
We have no age requirements for Family Camp. We do want parents to know that some activities will not be specifically designed for children younger than 6. However, with your guidance, we believe that children of all ages can enjoy an unforgettable weekend with their family at camp!
Can we request to be in the same cabins as other families?
You may request to share a cabin with another family, but please understand we do not:
Place unmarried, romantically involved adults in the same cabin.
Place single adults in a cabin with single adults of the opposite gender (unless related by marriage, blood, or adoption).
There is a family roommate request on your registration form. There will be a discount of 10% if you choose to room with another family. Please remember that there will only be 12 people to a cabin. While we can't guarantee cabin requests, we try very hard to please everyone.
What if we have never been to camp before? Can we still come?
Of course. You will not be the only family that has never been to camp at either Camp Ridgecrest for Boys or Camp Crestridge for Girls. You will still have an amazing time and make some great friends! Plus, I can't think of a better way to "check out" Ridgecrest Summer Camps!
