Status: Completed 1998 One of Camp Crestridge Alumnae and Friends shining achievements at camp has been the gift of the pavilion....
Crestridge is in the process of building a new infirmary. (Any girls who have seen camp recently can testify this will be a HUGE blessing the one currently is falling apart...) We NEED your prayers and help as the alumnae to make this happen.
We all have been changed by Crestridge in some way and without facilities that are up to date and help campers and staff feel safe and loved, camp wouldn’t be possible.
We’ve raised 10k so far for the new infirmary! Praise God!! But we need to raise 20k more to make this happen. Yes, that number is big, but we trust in God to make it happen. A little donation goes a long way and we know that we as an alumni can make a difference at Crestridge this summer and touch young girls lives by making this infirmary fully funded ASAP.
The four ways you can help are:
1. Through prayer.
❤️ We believe bold prayers are powerful prayers. Pray we can raise the funds and the building will remind campers they are love and cared for.
2. A simple 10 dollar donation.
If everyone who read this donates at least 10 dollars, we will have hit half our goal. Donate your $10 through Venmo is an app and you can and venmo @camp-crestridge-alumnae. Venmo is completely safe and owned by PayPal. Crestridge has changed us for forever, a simple $10 can help campers lives be changed through this building at camp. After you do this comment why you love camp! Let’s see how many people can do this small act and the BIG difference it could make.
3. If you feel lead to donate $1,000 for this project, you will get to stay at the Driggers small cabin in the Ridgecrest community. This would be for 6 whole nights! We are giving this away to the first four who donate $1,000!
4. If you feel lead and donate $3,000, you get a large cabin stay.
If you make this donation of this number (and are one of the first 4 people to donate this number) you will get a 6 night stay in a large cabin in the Ridgecrest community between September-March. How fun would it be to reconnect with your family or camp friends near Crestridge??? We plan for this offer to go quick!
The first large contribution of CCAF was a two-level pavilion and deck located between the chapel and the gym. This structure was entirely funded by alumnae and friends' contributions, and was erected by volunteer labor supplied by Ridgecrest Conference Center over the fall and winter of 1998-99. It was dedicated to Willard K. "Daddy" Weeks at the 1999 reunion and a stone fireplace was added in the spring of 2003, funded chiefly by Ruth and Norvel Lee Burkett.
In 2002, the alumnae covered the cost of adding a large deck to the new Craft building.
Renovation and expansion of the camp chapel was accomplished in time for the 2005 sessions through our "Reach for the Stars Campaign." This ambitious project added enough extra seating to ensure that the chapel can comfortably seat the entire camp and upgraded the lighting and the stage area.
In 2006 a custom-made playground was built in a common area of Chippewa/Chickasaw Hill.
Our most ambitious project to date was a two-story building to house the camp store and the CCAF museum. Completed in time for 2012 camp sessions, the new Beehive provides more space plus much-needed extra bathrooms. At a cost upwards of $150,000, this project is the result of the generosity of alums, friends, parents of campers, and Lifeway.
