Never a dull moment...

Timberline offers the best introduction to Kidder Creek for campers in 2nd—6th grade. For one full week, the days are filled with crazy games, competitions, outdoor activities, and target sports like archery and riflery. Daily water events at the pond include swimming, the water slide, fishing, and the aqua glide. Cabin devotions and campfire are times of sharing and learning more about God.



There's always something cool and exciting to make to help you remember your time at camp. Crafts range in ability and appeal for all ages and our counselors make craft time fun for girls and boys.

Adventure Ridge High Ropes Course

Bond with your cabinmates and friends on a high ropes adventure. Once you’re in the trees, you’ll traverse with your partner through nine different elements without coming down in between.

Pond Time

During the heat of the day, the coolest place to be is at Kidder Creek’s pond. Between the waterslide and our famous Aquaglide, the pond offers something for everyone.

Timberline Target Sports

Take aim on a variety of target ranges at Kidder Creek. With our trained staff, slingshots, archery, and riflery will improve your skill as your “best shot” keeps getting better!

Horseback Ride

Saddle up for an hour long trail ride through the trees around camp. Our trained Wranglers will guide you through the basics of horsemanship and western riding before you hit the trail.

River Float

An incredible ½ day float on the Klamath River that is suited for campers in 2nd–6th grade. See what wildlife you can spot on the shores as you paddle through a picturesque backdrop. Four class II rapids complete the day with a thrill that is sure to leave you wanting more.

Whitewater Rafting - Salmon Hole to Tree of Heaven (Class II)

The Perfect introduction to whitewater rafting for young adventurous campers.  This stretch of water will leave adventurers begging for more as they navigate splashy class II rapids and spend time swimming in the pools.
