Although winter is coming and it’s almost Christmas, we’d like to take you back to the summer and show you some of the best blobs from 2009. I’m sure some of these could have been painful, but it’s always worth it! Hope you are getting excited about next summer and being able to blob again.
It’s that time again; time to eat turkey, stuffing, and all the fixin’s! We hope you enjoy your time this weekend with your friends and family while you are away from school and work. Get some rest and take time to thank God for all the ways He has provided for you. Here’s our way of wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving!
Ridgecrest Summer Camps is about to be involved in breaking a Guinness World Record! We are joining the WSSA Stack Up! team to beat the world record of “Most People Sport Stacking at Multiple Locations in One Day.” The event is being held this Thursday, Nov. 12. Ron has been pushing us hard to train and get ready for the event. Check it out!
Check back at the end of the week to see our involvement in breaking the world record!
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!
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!

When there are no campers here, we have to make simple things fun. This video will show you one of those times.
In case you did not read our previous blog, we are having a Photo contest. You can read the guidelines here. Be sure to submit photos from the summer of 2009. Staff can participate as well!
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!!
When we say messy, we mean MESSY!!!
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!
