i grew up going to this camp, from age 7-15
Many of my good childhood memories stem from this camp, every summer i remember pulling up in our vans full of screaming kids, running out straight to see what cabin room i’d be in. I still have friends and counselors from my first year of camp i still keep in touch with today, i’m 19, this place will always have a special place in my heart, i pray and hope this place will be open whenever i have children so that they can experience the same.

We absolutely love this place. Not only is it beautiful the staff is amazing. The food is so yummy its an amazing place to reconnect with yourself your family or with God. The activities are fun and family oriented. You can relax in the evening around the fire and look at the stars or have family night with a movie and lots of snacks. We have been several times with our church for our women's retreat. Our next goal is to plan a family reunion. I definitely recommend Granite Ridge.

Attending camp as a youth was always something very special. I sold a lot of cans of candy to help fund my camp experiences. The Experiences at Granite Ridge has always been just as rewarding. Regardless if it as work team, or serving as a Board of Directors Member, Granite Ridge Christian Camp holds a special pace in my heart. It has been said the requirements for a Great Camp is "Good Showers, and Great Food!" Both will be found at Granite Ridge along with a Great Staff ! - George Eastis

I was looking for a children’s camp for my church. I had heard about Shay Stewart and Granite Ridge and for a number of years I got involved personally because of what I saw! I thought, “I want to be part of this! It’s awesome!” Shay and his staff do an incredible job at making the camp fun and memorable! I would not ever ever ever hesitate to recommend Shay and his staff and Granite Ridge!

The staff at this camp are awesome - friendly, helpful, and caring. The food is way beyond typical “camp food”. Tracy, the kitchen queen, takes pride in her meals. She provides meals that are balanced nutritionally, visually appealing, and tastes fabulous. Her cookies? Well, you would have to taste them to understand- they are heavenly.
The camp grounds are clean and there is lots of room to roam and plenty of activities- swimming pool, horseback riding, hatch throwing, just to name a few. And of course you can just rest in their well supplied and clean cabins.

Campers repeatedly remark about how great the food is, best food ever, better than their mom’s cooking. They love the homemade desserts, especially the chocolate chip cookies.
Campers talk about their love for the outdoor experience, seeing God in nature, being away from their normal everyday routine, going home renewed.

I have been going to this camp since it was still named Emmanuel Heights. My involvement has grown over the years and so has my love for this special place! This is truly a sacred place and place set aside by God, a refuge from the world. You feel it the second you step onto campus.
