Kidder Creek

High Adventure and Horse experiences for the outdoor enthusiast at our Northern California location

Adventure for all ages

Located in far northern California just south of the Oregon border, Kidder Creek is nestled at the base of the breathtaking Marble Mountains. This remote setting includes almost 600 acres of mountain forests, horse pastures, bubbling creeks and a popular recreation pond. Whitewater rafting on the Klamath, rock climbing beautiful panoramic cliffs, high country trail rides, and refreshing waterfalls are all short trips from home base.

Why Kidder?

Adventure with a purpose

Kidder Creek provides a bridge to a life-transforming encounter with God. Through high adventure and horse programming, our aim is to show each camper how they are special to God and to us. In doing this, we offer a clear presentation of God’s Word embedded in a well-designed program and presented by a spiritually mature staff. A variety of adventures have been designed to build confidence and create lifelong memories for campers of all ages.
