Summer camps have been offered at Quaker Ridge since 1949. Friends Camps are designed to provide youth with active, adventure-filled experiences within a safe learning environment. Each camp provides campers with fun recreational activities, creative uses of the outdoors, positive peer interaction, supportive and caring Christian counselors, and solid bible-based teaching. We have three camps running the same week, each with the same theme.
Middle School Camp - Entering Grades 7-9
Welcome to Middle School Camp! No one said Middle School was easy, but our team of counselors and directors are excited about exploring what it looks like to help you discover how to live a life following Christ. Expect to have a great week spending time with friends doing games, worship, and all the other activities you love at camp.
Directors: Randy Wesson, Chris Stanfield, Autumn Keith
Junior Camp - Entering Grades 4-6
Junior Campers can expect to have the best week of their summer when they come up to enjoy a full action packed week with the greatest counselors! Junior campers will get to experience God as they learn about what Jesus Christ did for them. There will be singing, worship, bible study, devotions, games, and of course lots of laughter. You won't want to miss out on the Great Counselor Hunt, swimming, horseback riding, night games, climbing Soldier's Mountain, and well... you will just have to come see!
Directors: Meghan Rose Miranda-Troup, Ally Cabrera and maybe you
Senior High Camp - Entering Grades 9-12 and those that just graduated high school
Following Christ is a lifelong process. The Bible speaks about this using many metaphors but one that the Apostle Paul uses is running a race. It is this metaphor we will be exploring while also playing games racing around Quaker Ridge Camp. Life is truly an Amazing Race. We hope that we can use this theme to teach the High Schooler's ways to lay a foundation for them to follow Christ all of the days of their lives.
Directors: Dwight and Rebecca Scull, Drew Holcombe, Bart Jacks
