New Crestridge Flag

Posted on May 24, 2011 by Kayla

Flags represent a community of people, where they come from, and what they stand for.  This summer, Crestridge has received its own  special addition to fly proudly at camp. Given to us and made by hand by one of our own lovely camp nurses, Monica Kidder, the flag sports camp’s symbol and colors. We are happy to have a place like Crestridge where we can grow in the Lord, and make lasting friendships that build up the body of Christ.  Whenever you think about Camp Crestridge or see the waving flag this summer, give thanks to the Lord for blessings such as camp, friendships, and creation. We are getting so excited for the summer to start, and we are just about ready to have all of you here! See you all very soon!

January Secret Assignment Winner

Posted on February 23, 2011 by Kayla

It has been busy the past month here at camp! Camp conferences, traveling and recruiting new staff, designing and choosing new camp attire…there’s tons of exciting camp preparations going on. In the midst of it all, we  loved watching your video entries for the January secret assignment. We asked you gals to submit videos of you and random friends singing your favorite song or cheer in a public place. The decision has been made, and we picked our winner.

The Knowles and the Myers bring  Crestridge pride to Disney’s Hollywood Studios, shouting ” Pride of the South” for all to hear! They sound great!

Some very honorable mentions are Kierstin Haddock also singing “Pride of the South ” with two very awesome guys from her campus ministry. Way to step up dudes and represent the ladies with no shame.

We have enjoyed doing all the secret assignments the past few months, and really liked getting to see all of you bring camp into your everyday lives! As  it gets closer and closer to summer (it’s already about March! Can you believe it?)..we will have new and fun videos  and information to give you to get you pumped and ready for camp! It’s getting closer, so get excited!
