Touring Colorado Springs, CO

Posted on December 7, 2009 by Sharon

This past week, Ron, Phil and Sharon attended the Christian Camp and Conference Association’s National Conference in Colorado Springs, CO.  We had the opportunity to attend seminars/sessions and also worship with other camping people.  It was a fun and restful time!  We thought it would be a good idea to give you an idea of what we got to do while we were out there.  Take a look!

Guinness World Record Speed Stacking Results

Posted on November 18, 2009 by Sharon

As some of you may have read, Ridgecrest Summer Camps was involved in breaking the Guinness World Record for “Most People Sport Stacking at Multiple Locations in One Day” this past Thursday, Nov. 12.  Last we saw, there were over 270,000 people signed up to participate.  Well as we were stacking here in the office, we decided to have a competition of our own.  For all of you thinking about what skills to take this summer, you should think about Speed Stacking (aka cup stacking).  Try to beat our times!

We do get work done here in the office as opposed to what some of you may think.  We hope you enjoy the entertainment we try to provide for you!

Experiencing Asheville and its Surroundings

Posted on November 6, 2009 by Sharon

Each session, our villages have the opportunity to take a trip out of camp.  We’d love to show you just a few places they visited this summer.

Some that you did not see in the video include whitewater rafting on the Nantahala, tubing down Deep Creek, Sliding Rock, painting pottery, WNC Nature Center, ice skating, Upper and Lower Creek Falls, and more.  It’s always a fun and exciting time at Camp Crestridge!

New Skills were a Hit

Posted on October 28, 2009 by Sharon

We added several new skills at Crestridge for 2009.  Those included cooking, needlecraft, digital photography, mystery skill, outdoor games, and table games.  They were a great addition to camp!

If you have any suggestions for summer 2010, you can comment below!
