Father Son Camp has been canceled for 2020. Please consider joining us for our Family Getaways this summer!
When? August 28-30, 2020
Every summer, boys go home and tell stories about wild adventures, new friends, and memories that will last a lifetime. Father Son Camp is your chance to enter into that story with your son!
Don't settle for another typical weekend at home. This weekend only happens once a year. You don't want to miss it!
No one will have a greater impact on a boy than his father.
And a son's greatest desire in life is to spend quality time with his dad.
Basic Info & FAQ
Imagine you and your son doing the Blob together, going down the zipline, sitting around the campfire, or doing the slide together. Imagine playing Sock War on the same team, throwing water balloons, shooting a rifle, going fishing, or shooting a bow and arrow. Imagine praying together and making memories. That's what Father Son Camp is all about.
When is the weekend?
While we typically have Father Son Camp each summer, this summer we are offering Family Getaways every day until August 2nd! Register your family here! (Our traditional Family Camp over Labor Day Weekend has been canceled.)
How much does it cost?
Father/Son pair: $380
Additional son or grandfather: $130/each
How do I register?
Just click here! Make sure you register in YOUR (dad's) name, and put the grade as "12+"
Where will we be staying?
Fathers and sons will be staying in our newly renovated cabins. You will be grouped with other fathers and sons, and there will be no more than 10 people in each cabin. The cabins are clustered around a bathhouse with showers, toilets, and sinks. See more: Camp Ridgecrest Property & Facilities.
What will we be doing?
While we don't want to ruin the surprise, we'll give you a little taste. WE hope to create a Camp Ridgecrest-like experience for you and your son to enjoy together. We want to set you up to be the hero to your son. We want you both to have an absolute blast, filled with adventure, fun, laughter, relaxation, learning and growth. We desire that you grow closer together as a family and, ultimately, closer to the Lord. It's our goal that this would be the best weekend of your year!
What should we bring?
Don't worry, we'll provide a detailed packing list for all of our registered campers in early August.
Will we talk about God?
Yes, we will. While we hope to point everyone to Jesus, this is not a conference or a retreat. There are no breakout sessions or long-winded speakers. We want to create a fun experience. We don't do "cheesy" and we try not to do awkward. We have found that our God is filled with adventure and we want to explore that adventure with you and your son.
I have more than one son. Can we all come together?
Absolutely! Just make sure you note this in your registration.
Can we request to be in the same cabin as other fathers and sons?
Yes, there is a cabin roommate request on your registration form. While we can't guarantee any cabin placements, we'll try very hard to please everyone. You may request to share a cabin with another family, but please understand we do not place unmarried, romantically involved adults in the same cabin.
Are there any minimum age requirements?
Yes, we ask that boys be at least 6 years of age before attending this weekend.
What if we've never been to camp before?
No problem! You won't be the only father and son who are experiencing Ridgecrest for the first time! You'll have an amazing time and make some new friends. We can't think of a better way to check out camp for the first time!
Camp Ridgecrest is not simply a place where your boys grow as individuals; it's a place where you can grow together as a family!
