Junior Great Adventure Week (GAW) is designed specifically for young campers (rising 3rd - rising 6th graders) who want an introductory experience to the great outdoors. Campers will participate in all the regular camp activities of Junior Camp, but will also spend one night out in a tent in our camping village cooking their dinner and breakfast over a campfire and learning basic camping skills. 

GAW activities will be facilitated by our staff here at Ridge Haven so that the campers can focus on making new friends in their cabin group and enjoy great times of worship and teaching. See a list of our activities here.

Watch our camp video to get an inside look at what camp at Ridge Haven is like:

This was such a positive experience for my children - to be able to be with other believers in an uninhibited, fun, way. It was a way for them to experience Christ through the talks and through relationship with peers and through their counselors in a carefree, yet structured environment.
