Pine Ridge Bible Camp has been impacting the lives of campers since 1946!

Pine Ridge exists to share and model the message of Jesus in a safe, innovative, and relational setting.

During their week at camp, campers will clearly hear the word of God and be able to respond in worship. They will meet new friends and amazing staff members that are highly trained in reaching the lives of students and keeping camp safe.

And with everything we do, kids will be encouraged to have fun as they spend time playing games, singing songs, and trying new activities.

Have you ever wanted to fly a plane? This summer you could make that dream a reality at our Brand New Aviation Camp being offered at Pine Ridge!

Aviation camp will allow campers to learn the basics of flight, controls, and even let them fly a plane!

Campers will spend the majority of each day Monday through Friday training at SMAT (School of Missionary Aviation Technology) while spending each morning and evening on the Pine Ridge campus.

During this week of exploring mission's aviation, campers will be given the opportunity (weather permitting) to fly a plane three separate times, visit the control tower at Gerald R. Ford International Airport, learn about plane maintenance, and will participate in a special presentation on Saturday morning.

Space is limited!

Adventure Trip (Grades 9-12)

If you are looking for a completely different camp experience, try our Adventure Trip.

This week of camp calls and caters to the adventurous soul in all of us.

This week involves a day trip allowing campers to cook over a fire, enjoy water activities, hiking, and more. The focus of this camp will be to surround our campers in God's creation and marvel at all He has made.

On the return to camp, campers will get to enjoy many of our amazing camp activities and games they have come to know and love at Pine Ridge.

This will be an adventure they won't want to miss.

Advanced Watersports (Grades 9-12)

Take water sports camp to the next level! Advanced Water Sports is for campers that can water ski, wakeboard, and kneeboard.

If you do not know how to do any of the above skills we invite you to sign up for our Basic Water Sports week to learn these skills.

Campers will spend a few hours each day having fun on Pine Lake water skiing, tubing, or wakeboarding.

Also included is a day trip to Action Water Sports where campers will have the opportunity to practice jumps and tricks at the wake park.

Art (Grades 9-12)

This Emphasis will allow each camper to explore one’s love of art beyond what is usually offered in the craft shop.

The instruction will focus on several or progressive projects as time allows. Projects can be taken home by each camper to share with others and remind them of all their hard work.

Battle Games (Grades 7-12)

This emphasis is for those who want to take Pine Ridge battle activities to the next level!

Basic Watersports (Grades 7-12)

Our Water Sports program is for all of our adrenaline hungry, water loving campers.

This program includes tubing, knee boarding, water skiing, and wakeboarding.

These sessions include teaching and instruction on each water activity to increase the success of each camper.

Space is limited so, if you are interested, be sure to register early. Equipment is provided for all.

Fishing (Grades 7-12)

Campers will be taught how to catch “the big one”. Of course we will fish in Pine Lake, but we will also try out some other bodies of water around the Cedar Springs area.

Bring your own pole and tackle box or use Pine Ridge equipment. All experience levels are welcome!

Horsemanship (Grades 4-12)

Campers will enjoy a daily trail ride, while also deepening their understanding of both horse and rider safety.

Daily instruction will focus on emergency equine care, independent saddling and bridling, as well as equitation.

Campers will get to take care of a horse and learn to saddle and ride it throughout the week.

All equipment is included, but we do ask campers to bring their own boots/good riding shoes and extra-long pants to ride in. No prior riding experience is required.
