Summer Camps at Laurel Ridge are special! Just ask anyone who has ever attended camp there! For 50 years campers have grown in their spiritual faith, found lifelong friends, dedicated and rededicated their lives to Christ, and grown to know Laurel Ridge as a very special place. For information on the Summer Camp schedule, go to the website.
Senior Highs meet September through May. They are involved in a variety of “helping hand” projects such as Samaritan’s Purse and community projects. Each year they prepare to participate in a short term mission effort during the summer months. The summer of 2007 was a week at the Moravian Seminary in Bethel, Alaska; in the summer of 2008 they traveled to New York to work at the Moravian Open Door, a facility for the homeless; in 2009 they traveled to Texas to minister in Hurricane relief: in 2010 they missioned in Costa Rica; in 2011 our youth went to Mississippi to work on Hurricane Katrina relief; and in 2012 went to Banning and Downey, California where they did mission work with Morongo Moravian and Downey Moravian. Their work included leading a worship service and Vacation Bible School, and ministering to the homeless on skid row.
Junior Highs: The Junior High Youth participate in several outreach projects including the 30 Hour Famine and Operation Christmas Child. The group meets every other Sunday throughout the year. One Saturday each month, the youth meet for an outing away from the church to build stronger connections with each other.
