Adventure for all ages

A jewel in the crown of our properties! Located in northern California just south of the Oregon border, the camp is nestled at the base of the breathtaking Marble Mountains. This wilderness setting includes almost 600 acres of mountain forests, horse pastures, bubbling creeks and a popular recreation pond. Whitewater river rafting on the Klamath, rock climbing beautiful panoramic cliffs 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. Our aim is to make campers know 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.
