Ever had mustard, relish, chocolate syrup, ranch dressing, flour and ketchup poured on you? Well, the chippewa campers and staff sure have…and that’s not even all the ingredients used!!

The starter camp girls get to experience lots of the same things that would happen during a regular session. One of those things is the mudpit! The Chickasaws went over to boys this week to play in the mud and had a blast! In the “real” world, people pay lots of money for a mudbath, but I wager they don’t have near as much fun as our girls do! Watch the video and see for yourself.

Starter camp has begun and the summer fun continues for another week. Since starter camp is only half as long as a regular session, the campers don’t experience everything. But we try to give them as much of the full camp experience as possible. They participate in skills (albeit a bit differently), village activities and campwide activities. The campwides include campfire, sockwar, and this year…the newspaper party!!
Watch the video below to hear about it from Sharon and to see a bit of it for yourself!

This summer we introduced a new camp wide activity…OMC or Organized Mass Chaos. Campers who came session 1B and 2B got to experience what that meant here at camp. As you saw in the video above, it really was chaos. But, as in everything here at camp, there was a method to our madness…no, really. The night definitely was chaotic, but it sure was fun.
Tell us your favorite part of the night!

It’s the first Wednesday of the session and that means trip day here at Crestridge! Two of the villages, Chickasaws and Choctaws, will stay here in camp while the other three head out the gates. Watch the video below to hear from Sharon as she tells us where the villages are going.

3. First layer is cooked chicken (cut into small pieces)
