Kidder Creek

Kidder Creek is in an amazingly unique location in northern California just south of the Oregon border at the base of the breathtaking Marble Mountains. Where else in the world can you ride horses in the high country of the mountains, or take a short trip and play in nearby falls, or sleep out under the stars after an amazing trip down the river? We’ve counted. One. And it’s here, waiting for you and your group to go on an adventure of a lifetime.

Testimonials

"I brought 16 high school students to Kidder Creek last summer. It was awesome and we loved it. It's October. We went in July. These past months have been our best months. I think it's largely because the group we brought came back with a spiritual vitality and a renewed sense of passion for God that they didn't have before camp. It has actually carried over longer than I thought it would. They have used that as a catalyst for diving into their own personal bible studies in the mornings and asking new, thought-provoking questions. They want more of an experience of God."

"I have been bringing kids to Kidder Creek since 2002. I feel like one of the most important aspects of Kidder Creek is that it really strips life down to what is most important. It's all about relationships, adventure and being present. There's no technology, there's no distractions and so our students get to really be present with each other. They get time away individually to reflect on God and his creation. To pray, to be quiet, absorb life and process things that they're experiencing. At night, we take time to process through those challenges (rafting, jumping, camping, and climbing) and see how those activities relate to life at home, whether it's in our relationships with other people, how we view life or the challenges we're willing to take on at home or at school. Most importantly, how we view faith and how we can learn a lot about following Jesus through our activities at Kidder Creek and what it means to listen to God as he guides your boat down the river of life."

"Thank you for being authentic and transparent. Thank you for allowing yourselves to be used by God for His work. Even when it wasn't comfortable; even when it was tiring, even when it was hard to be patient, to discipline, or to include... thank you for laying it all down for Him. The model you are is inspiring and transformative. As I was told by some boys, they got "life changing" talks. You all are world changers and life shapers. Thank you for carrying that weight well."
