High Adventure Camp 2020

Kidder Creek Adventure Camp starts and ends at Kidder, but journeys beyond for rafting on the Klamath River, sleeping under the stars and hiking to spectacular waterfalls. At camp enjoy pond time, bmx bikes, laser tag and the high ropes course. Lessons flow naturally from the many teachable moments embedded in the high adventure experience while daily devotions, and counselor-led discussions are geared to help campers go deeper spiritually.
