Shake N Wake
How do we start our camp each day? Each morning all the staff and campers meet in the main auditorium to kick off the day with music, singing, dancing, games, special teaching and instruction for the events of the day. Shake N Wake, guaranteed to kick off the day in the right way.
We believe that offering STEAM on Monday and Wednesday afternoons will support our mission of investing in the minds of young children through fun and rewarding activities. STEAM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics — in an interdisciplinary and applied approach.
Imagine young children having an opportunity to learn how all truth is God’s truth. Imagine
investing in the potential of our next generation, especially those who wouldn’t get a chance
otherwise. Imagine the impact this will have on future leaders in the marketplace and the church.
We stay on target by focusing on fun, participation, physical fitness, skill development and teamwork.
Activities suitable to the physical abilities of the various age groups include: Basketball, Soccer, Football, Frisbee, Bombardment, 9 Square in the Air, Wall Ball, Floor Hockey, Four Square, Kick Ball and trips to Curtis Memorial Park, just 7 miles north of Rocky Run.
Jump in the pool, splash a counselor, or jump off the diving board, fun in the sun never stops whenever water is part of a camp day. Quality lifeguards and instructors insure a safe and fun environment.
Weekly pool trips to a large semi-public pool are scheduled for all age groups. Boating and creek adventures at local lakes may happen as well, and watch out for Wet-N-Wild games that happen throughout the week.
Summer At The Ridge staff takes pool safety very seriously. We understand the potential risk with water activities and prepare our staff to provide quality supervision and care. All children must complete a swim test administered by either our trained lifeguard or pool lifeguards before being permitted to swim in deeper water. Children will swim in water depth appropriate to their size and swimming ability.
Children who have not learned to swim will stay in either the fenced in 1-foot pool or in the 3-foot pool while wearing a life jacket.
Parents, please provide your own puddle jumpers. Inflatable floats are not accepted at the pool.
We believe in the value of engaging children's minds, bodies, and hearts with activities and trips away from campus.
