Perfect balance of Christian teachings and crazy activities. We've been a loyal CC4G family for 8 summers now. I cannot say enough about having girls go to an all girl camp. Where else will at 14 year old girl roll out of bed and simply enjoy the perfect world that God has created without worrying about doing her hair and make-up. My daughter's camp friends are her world - she is much closer to these girls than her friends as school. Beautiful surroundings, lots of fun activities, Christian college girls as role models... 'nough said. RID: 45216

They LOVE it and I have never heard a negative comment from them about anything at camp. If you are looking for a Christian summer camp, this is it! I wouldn't consider sending my girls anywhere else! RID: 45147

Click to report rating    3/24/13   5     5     5     5     5   Every summer, in June we leave Louisiana and head up to North Carolina for camp! We look forward to it every year, and can't wait to go this year! I can't say enough about the staff there. They truely care about the girls. The staff are so dedicated to that ministry; the result of their dedication is reflected upon the girls joyful faces. The girls are treated as family, and the campers are all so close by the end of the summer. Many tears are shed on closing day, because they don't want to leave and are going to miss their cabinmates, and counselors. I wouldn't send my daughter anywhere else. This camp has to be one of the best ones in the country. I can't even imagine another camp topping this one. The girls are all well taken care of during the summer. Many of the cabins are newly built, but still have the rustic feel and look that a cabin should have. The scenery is beautiful there with perfect weather! Overall, coming here is a memorable experience which leads them closer to God. RID: 44067

Click to report rating    10/26/10   5     5     5     5     5   I absolutely love camp crestridge, it is my motivation that gets me through each year. This will be my fifth year at camp crestridge and I plan to have many many more. I will be a Cherokee and am pumped for another year of friends, fun, and faith. Camp crestridge has changed my life more than anything in this world and I have no idea where I would be without. The friends you make are unbelievable. In such a crazy place it can be hard to find people that share you beliefs and values but camp crestridge is a place where you can connect with these people. 80% of my facebook friends are from camp and they are excellent support and help me make through when the going gets rough. If you are looking for a camp where you or your child can find excellent role models, life long friends, a huge leap of faith, and memories that can last a life time look no further than Camp Crestridge for Girls RID: 34317

 1/31/09   5     5     5     5     5   I have been going to camp for 8 years now and I absoulutly love it! It combines a love for Christ with fun, and getting to know each other better. some may think the camp is too long but you really need that much time to get really settled in. I stay for four weeks and wish I could stay for six but if conflict with my mission trip to russia. but I'm looking forward to becoming a co! every camper gets a special one on one time with each co. called council of progress talks. a.k.a. cp talks. It is a wonderful time to open up about anything you want to talk about and the cos don't just say "ok talk" they help you and you become best friends with them. It many seem like a lot of money but it is totaly worth it! Every session the village goes on an out of camp trip and we go on several other trips close to camp! overall this is a wonderful camp that helps you grow, mentally, spiritually, physicly, and mentaly!

I'd recommend this camp to anyone. From the moment we leave at the end of the summer, my girls are already eager to sign up for next summer, and planning for it! The best summer experience you can possibly give your children!! RID: 25733

Click to report rating    8/13/08   3     4     4     3     4   Overall this is a great camp! The staff truly care about the kids and want to show Christ love to each and everyone. Yet inadvertently it can easily become very exclusive. Many of the staff and campers have been there for year and are deeply rooted in the history and tradition of the camp. While these both add to the overall experience of Crestridge, it can be hard to come in as a new face and feel included. This camp is a great place, I would just encourage kids to begin going there at a young age so that they can build the same friendships that the rest of girls carry with them throughout their years at camp.

Click to report rating    5/28/07   5     5     5     5     5   I've been going to Crestridge ever since I was a Chippewa (this will be my 8th summer and i'll be a Cherokee). This story is a favorite of my parents: My first year at camp I was 8 years old. My parents left me at camp crying and all. So 2 weeks later they drove up and were like "We missed you so much" and the first thing out of my mouth was not "Hey I missed ya'll too or I love you or anything" but "Can I stay 2 more weeks???". And that pretty much sums up camp. It's addicting. I start counting down days til camp in the fall. The staff is amazing, the activities are amazing, heck, even the food is great! I also grow a lot in my spiritual walk at camp. The counselors/ staff are always there for you to talk to about anything. The skills are fun. Campwide and village activities are crazy fun. Sock Wars are my favorite =). I drive everyone crazy talking about "Oh we did this at camp...oh i learned that at camp...or this one time at camp...". I definitely recommend it to EVERYONE. =) RID: 11230

If you want your child to have an amazing experience and learn about God, this is the place. The traditions are wonderful and memomorable. I have developed a hunger for my relationship with Christ and I owe it to Camp Crestridge! Love it! RID: 9897

Click to report rating    11/28/06   5     5     5     5     5   AMAZING! Our Daughter was a Chippwaw at Camp Crestridge and our son at Ridgecrest and they both had a BLAST. The whole way home all we heard was Camp Songs and they still are bugging us to this day about next summer. This camp is EXTREMELY old school Americana Girls Camp. She said she felt like she was in the American Girl book where Molly goes to camp. They have alot of pride and history, she also was cabinmates with alot of girls from affluent families so the networking is a plus. Here counselors were in my wifes sorority, and she raved about the food etc. My son had a blast at Ridgecrest the boys camp also. It was a GREAT experience for ALL involved A ++++++++++! RID: 5422
