THE RIDGECREST FOUNDATION
Honoring legacy. Forging new trails.
We are thrilled that a group has been formed to come alongside our Camps and partner with us to ensure the future of this ministry.
This new non-profit, known as the Ridgecrest Foundation, will serve the ministries of Camp Ridgecrest, Camp Crestridge, and the Ridgecrest Conference Center. Their desire is to continue building on Ridgecrest's strong legacy and tradition and help our ministries be ready for wherever the Lord leads in the future.
In the coming days, you'll have the opportunity to learn more about this group and how you can support it. We couldn't be more excited and we are once again reminded of, and thankful for, God's goodness and faithfulness!
