“I worked at Ridge Haven for five summers. My first two summers were as an intern and my last three were as a counselor, intern director, and counselor again. Every summer I worked there, I learned something unique and my faith was deepened in a new way. Although the location of Ridge Haven is beautiful and awe-inspiring, the aspect of Ridge Haven that has impacted me the most has been the people that work and have worked there. Every summer I have made new relationships and strengthened old ones. From working in the kitchen to leading a cabin full of campers, I have learned so much about what it means to serve and to advance the Kingdom. God has used Ridge Haven and the people of Ridge Haven to make me into the person I am today. Every time I leave Ridge Haven I know that I will return, and I cannot wait to do so.” -Matt Garringer Click the link in our bio to learn more about a summer at Ridge Haven!
Great day for Bubble Soccer today at Winter Retreat!
“I have worked at Ridge Haven for the last two summers, and they have been the best two summers of my life. The work at Ridge Haven is hard and tiring but each day seeing the joy on the campers faces as you go throughout the day makes it all worth it. Ridge Haven has been known for being better than Disney, I couldn't agree more. The staff has pure joy and love for camp, the kids, sharing the gospel and each other. Being on staff at Ridge Haven has grown me in my relationship with God, taught me how to serve others better, and my relationships with other people. I'm forever thankful for Ridge Haven in all that it has taught me and the beauty of God's love it has shown me.” -Amanda Getgen If you want to come experience the best summer of your life, follow the link in our bio!
“Last summer I was approached and asked to describe Ridge Haven in just three words. After a moment of contemplation, I decided to go with Gospel Driven Community. These three words describe why working on staff at Ridge Haven is both one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences of my life. The staff at Ridge Haven is unified by one defining message - to see God's Kingdom grow and to see the truth of the gospel impact both our staff and our campers every day. The community here will challenge and support you to approach this ministry every day with both love and humility. I will forever be grateful for the eternal impact that this place has made on me and my relationships.” -Sam Hodge If you want to experience God’s love through relationship and service this summer, follow the link in our bio to learn more about what a summer at Ridge Haven looks like!
“There’s not been a year where I haven’t been at Ridge Haven since seventh grade. Eleven years later, and it’s still having the same strong impact on my life. The mountains make it beautiful, but the people remind me of God’s sovereignty and steadfast love for his children. Ridge Haven impacted my faith, the way I handle relationships, and my future career. I can’t explain how grateful I am for the counselors I had as a camper, those I worked with, and those I instructed. Camp remains as one of the most formative parts of my life and understanding of the gospel message of forgiveness and doubt.” -Kat Smith If you want to come join us this summer, follow the link in our bio!
