Hey, Camp Families!

While there are some stragglers yet, the camp season is over for most of you. Still, it’s never too early to start considering where you’ll send your camper for the next summer season. Whether they’re going for the first time or looking for a change-up in the camp experience, taking the steps to exploring how well a camp will suit your child is one of the most crucial parts of a successful camp stay.

And just for that very reason, we like to highlight the summer camps with whom we’ve formed great relationships. Today, let’s shine our Camp Spotlight on Camp Crestridge for Girls in mountainous North Carolina.

Built and established in 1955, Camp Crestridge has welcomed young girls to this spot of abounding natural beauty for a two-week adventure that helps shape the woman your daughter will become. Nestled nicely on the south side of a heavily wooded mountain with a view of a plethora of mountain peaks all along the horizon, Camp Crestridge sits on an extraordinary piece of land that stretches out over a hundred acres with miles of private trails and campsites.

They’ve got tons of fun going on for the summers like their Giant Swing, Leap of Faith, Water Slide, Octaball, Four Square, Hiking, High Ropes Course, Canoeing, Outdoor Cooking, Zip Line, Blob, Time in the Swimming Pool, and Time with Puppies. The campground borders the Pisgah National Forest which provides mountains of mile-high peaks, cascading waterfalls, and forested slopes—a perfect backdrop for adventures.

The waterfront is also a staple of most girls' adventures at Crestridge! The lake is central to the grounds which makes it an easy find and frequently enjoyed! Girls have a blast on a blob, the diving board, the floating dock, Corcl boats, and plenty of Adirondack chairs surrounding the area for relaxing and hanging out near the water.

In the luxury pool atop the Blue Ridge mountains like they have at Camp Crestridge, campers are treated to not just an amazing view, but a diving board, hoops for water basketball, nets for water volleyball, custom underwater lighting, and plenty of lounge chairs for hanging out around the poolside.

The recently-renovated dining hall sees 600+ girls come in from serious play, sit with their cabin, relax, and enjoy the good food. And the cabins are built in the same simple, clean, and rustic style with mountain air breezes in place of air conditioning. The cabins have two private full bathrooms and are big enough for ten campers and two or three cabin leaders.
