At Mar-Lu-Ridge, campers of all ages experience and engage in cooperative learning while participating in new activities, all in a safe, non-threatening, non-competitive and hands-on environment that builds campers’ confidence along with an understanding of what it means to live as a “community in Christ.”
We welcome all people to a mountaintop experience of Christian community that changes lives, makes disciples, builds friendships, and encourages care of God’s creation. People of all faiths are welcome! We are open to everyone, so invite your friends, co-workers, and partners to see what Mar-Lu-Ridge has to offer.
The 2017 Open House dates for people interested in learning more about our summer camp are March 26, April 30 and May 21. You will have a chance to meet some of the staff, tour the grounds and facilities, and ask questions from 2:00 – 4:30 p.m. No appointment is necessary, just come and check us out!
