CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Our Vision
At Earth Path Education we encourage the experience of being at home in nature and within oneself. We empower girls, boys, young women and men, adults and elders to claim the path to earth connection that is within each of us. We begin to see how bio-mimicry, being like the stream, being like the deer, can help us to live harmoniously, reducing stress and enhancing the ease of our existence. Through learning Earth skills, nature awareness, and ancestral wisdom we remember our place in an interconnected web; we remember who we are.

When we commune with our unity; we naturally develop compassionate communication skills with all beings. These skills aid us throughout life by allowing us to feel how our thoughts, words, and actions affect the whole of our community, the whole of life. We then begin to understand how we want to show up for ourselves, our communities, and our world.

With an understanding of our inter-connectedness to Earth and each other, we grow the roots to support a life of balanced giving and recieving. We naturally develop the inner wisdom that allows each of us to live our lives with confidence in ourselves and our visions, integrity within our relationships and actions, and humble gratitude for all that we experience everyday.

We help grow a culture of listening to mother earth as our wisest mentor.

Our Approach
Nature Awareness:
Through focusing on nature awareness we encourage our students to experience what is happening around them, awakening curiosity and inspiration. When students are empowered to root in processes like making fire, foraging wild foods, making rope, and learning bird songs; they begin to feel capable of relaxing and deepening in the wilderness. We believe that learning skills of how to source our human lives from the abundant life around us grows respect; respect for the plants that heal our wounds, the sticks that give us warmth, and the creek that cools us. We develop a deepening gratitude to the elements that offer us life.

Regenerative Presence:
We use a variety of tools to inspire a regenerative presence on the planet. At Earth Path Education, we believe that the concept of regeneration is the key to a harmonious future here on Earth. We believe that as humans we can do more than not harm, we can actually feed all of creation with our beauty, our rituals, our songs, and our deep listening.

Village Building:
We hold necessary the role of the village in our Wilderness Rites of Passage ceremonies. It is the village that sends the initaites into their journeys, and the village that catches the initaites and witnesses the transformations. The rites of passage is also a key part to the health of the village, pumping all members with health, inspirations and vitality, bringing to the village the vision seeds that are to sprout us into a more harmonious way of relating.

Ceremonial Arts:
At Earth Path Education we are committed to the beauty way. We make earth offerings, and leave equsitie altars in the forest. We sings and dance, at each spring, we feed the fire with our stories and we compost our grief and our burdens, so that life can grow corn with it to feed the people. We pray for our lives, we pray for the earth. Our dreams bring us messages, and as we tune into our rhythms, and synch up with the rythms of the land. The earth starts to dream up through us, clarifying our purpose, calling us forward, and illuminating our gifts. Our ceremonies are an art of listening, to that wisdom which has been held in the earth and is just waiting to be danced up through us.

Permaculture:
Permaculture creates systems that provide for Human needs and the Earth’ s needs through mutually beneficial relationships. The health of our human community is linked to our local bioregion, which in turn is linked to the wellbeing of all ecosystems. We instill the ethics of Elemental Linking and Holistic Thinking. As every element becomes an integral part of the whole system, the whole community becomes more dynamic, harmonious, and energy efficient. These enhanced relationships reduce maintenance and stress, while increasing yields and happiness. These permaculture principles apply to our ecological relationship and our social relationships.

Play:
We instill the idea that work and play can be one in the same. We inspire youth and adults to follow the things that they are truly passionate about. We help guide each other to feel confident in achieving our dreams, and manifesting a life that we are happy to be living each day. We believe that the most harmonious accomplishments come from a people who love what they were doing, feeling that their calling, is a place where ones passion is meeting the thrist of the world and bringing sweet water to the driest of places. We support our participants in finding this inspiration, passion, and motivation within themselves and taking action on their calling.

Meet Our Instructors
We offer instruction from connected, knowledgeable Ecologists, Naturalists, Primitive Skills Enthusiasts, and Crafts Teachers, and other Earth-loving individuals. We invite special Guest Teachers and Inspirational Elders to join us throughout our programs. Please check out our instructor bios. All of our instructors will share with your children and teens the wisdom they have been so committed to incorporating into their lives and the world. The great thing is we will learn as much if not more from them!

OTHER CAMP INFO: Growing Goddess is much more than your average camp. Here at Earth Path Education, we are truly passionate about supporting youth as they grow and mature. We think of these young women as a part of our family, and strive to support them in all aspects of their lives. We provide a safe space for these girls to freely share their joys and their sorrows. We thrive together through honoring our sisterhood. As we see the benefits of connecting together within a supportive network, all competitive energy melts away. With the guidance of mentors and a close connection to the earth, a culture is created that marks this powerful transition with intentional ceremony.

The Rites of Passage allows each young woman to connect to her inner guidance. This clarity inspires self-confidence, empowered decision-making, compassionate communication, and goal motivation. We come together to find the beauty inherent in each of us, so we fully believe in ourselves and each other. We sing, we dance, we celebrate! We learn about who we are and how we want to show up for our communities, this earth and our lives.

We learn about how to care for our amazing bodies, and discuss how to maintain a positive body-image. We learn about the traditional Moon Lodge, a sacred space established to honor a woman’s moontime. Through implementing these ceremonial practices, we learn how we can create space to deeply explore the blessings of being a woman.

We experience ourselves through ceremony and through play! We learn ancestral crafts, games, stories, and songs as we root into our bio-region! As we camp and hike our amazing landscapes, we explore the ways in which we can sustain ourselves through our understanding of the natural world. We learn a variety of earth skills including how to make fire, wild edibles, permaculture, plant medicines, and much more.

We call upon elders in our community to share their wisdom; we bring in strong role models to teach a variety of skills, crafts, and classes. Together we form a web that nourishes the fertile soil that feeds our growth and expansion throughout life. This quest is a powerful and fun-filled experience for all, helping to create the beautiful, heart-centered women of our future!

We facilitate camper growth by offering a Christian camp program that has been around for 130 combined years.

Our staff are highly trained, committed believers with a heart for children/youth ministry. Both camps are accredited by the American Camp Association and Christian Camp and Conference Association. Join us for an unforgettable experience of fun encompassing physical, mental, social, and spiritual growth.

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: Available to 17 year olds at Camp Crestridge for Girls. The SALT Program is for former campers or those new to camp who wish to be part of camp life, but more importantly seek to develop leadership, service, and discipleship abilities. SALT participants live together under the supervision of a director who is typically upperclassmen in college or a college graduate.

Spaces are limited to 14 per session. Sessions last 4 weeks. The cost of the program is $800 (a quarter of what it would cost as a camper). This money goes back into the SALT program to pay for their trips, entertainment and basic needs in order to increase the quality of their time and training while at camp.

The SALT program has three main components: service, discipleship, and fellowship. The camp administration sees this as a vital part of developing the long-term leadership of Camp Crestridge and beyond. The SALT positions are typically filled by Christmas.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: We have limited scholarships available. Please e-mail rscamps[AT]ridgecrestcamps.com to receive a Scholarship Application.

FAMILY CAMP SESSION(S): Imagine spending a long weekend with your entire family at Camp! Stay together in a cabin with your own restrooms, and enjoy a weekend in the mountains. Swim as a family, play one of our famous Camp-Wide games, go hiking together, visit our crafts lodge or ceramics studio, enjoy fantastic food, sit by a campfire, rock in a rocking chair, shoot a rifle, or learn to shoot the bow and arrow. Family Camp is held over Labor Day Weekend, September 4-September 7.

YEAR-ROUND PROGRAMS: Do you ever have trouble thinking of something to do with your daughter? What does valuable time with your daughter look like? We have a great option! We are excited to provide you with an opportunity to join your daughter at camp and share life changing experiences and fun memories.

You can act like a kid again by going off the Blob or down the zipline and slide at the lake, sneaking through the woods playing Sockwar, sitting around the campfire on a cool fall evening, having a paint war on the green, challenging yourself on the climbing wall, painting pottery in the ceramics studio, learning to shoot a bow and arrow or rifle and so much more. The best part about this…you can do it all with your daughter!

Aside from the activities, you’ll be able to experience God’s love through His creation, hear from God’s Word, and have devotional times with your daughter. Camp Crestridge is not simply a place where your girls can grow as individuals; it’s a place where you can grow together as a family! Our Mother & Daughter Camp will be August 21-23. Registration is open!

SUMMER CAMP JOBS:
Being a counselor is no ordinary job and we are not looking to employ just ordinary people. When we hire staff for the summer we look for people that will form the foundation that we base our entire community on. We look for people that we believe would make strong, positive role models in the lives of our campers and be leaders and mentors within our small community.

The residential setting means that every choice you make will be observed and potentially replicated by the girls in your care. Do you feel that your behavior is role model worthy? We want counselors who are role models, but also not afraid to be silly and have fun! By applying to camp you are expressing an interest in helping children to develop in a caring, nurturing, and fun environment.

You will be giving up a great deal of privacy and comfort, working long and demanding hours, adhering to camp policies which you may find very limiting (curfews, time on, time off, lack of privacy, no smoking, no drinking alcohol, etc). We look for people who will not see this as a "setback" but rather as a "set up" for a great working environment.

If you believe that you have what it takes to lead and help shape the next generation of young women, then drop us a line or apply today.

Camp Carolina is about adventure and meeting challenges head- on. It’s about the simple faith that anything can be accomplished through determination and enthusiasm. It’s about living fully, setting personal goals, making friends and enjoying accomplishments. Its mostly about fun – on the rivers, lakes, rocks, trails, courts, parks and fields, Our program is so diverse that boys can be successful here as long as they are willing to try.
