Mar-Lu-Ridge Summer Camp 2018 Brochure is available now!
****New for 2018: SPACE CAMP!****
****Registration for all summer programs opens January 1, 2018!****
Once a camper is registered, please check out our Parent/Guardian Handbook.
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! Rules for acceptance and participation in Mar-Lu-Ridge programs and use of facilities are the same for everyone without regard to race, color, national origin, religion, age, disability, sexual orientation, or gender expression or identity. We are open to everyone, so invite your friends, co-workers, and partners to see what Mar-Lu-Ridge has to offer.
Counselors and staff can have a tremendous influence on a camper’s growth. Mar-Lu-Ridge staff members are carefully selected and specially trained to ensure a safe, meaningful, and unforgettable experience of faith. Registered nurses, emergency medical technicians, certified specialty instructors, lifeguards, and pastors are also present each week during the summer to provide a safe, healthy environment in which to learn.
We have two open house dates in 2018: March 18th and May 20th. These open houses are for people who are interested in learning more about our summer camp. 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. Tours will start from Agape Hall. No appointment is necessary, just come and check us out! If those dates do not fit your schedule, please call us at 1.800.238.9974 to set up a personal tour.
In addition to our traditional camp sessions, we also offer many specialty camp sessions including, but not limited to: adventure, arts, horseback, Night Owls, Civil War, and space camps. You can discover more about the different camps at the Camp Descriptions page. To see when our camps are offered, check out the Schedule and Fees page. Registration opens January 1st!
All residential camps begin with registration on Sunday 3:00-5:00 pm and end on Friday with departure between 7:30 and 8:00 pm (unless otherwise indicated). It is requested that these times be strictly observed. Please call the Mar-Lu-Ridge office at 1.800.238.9974 if you are going to be late in dropping off or early in picking up your camper.
