The Beauty of God's Creation
Royal Ridges Retreat began in 1978 with the very generous gift of 78 acres of land by Roy and Jean Andersen. We are located 25 miles northeast of Vancouver, Washington in the tranquil and scenic foothills of the majestic Cascade Mountain range. Our camp has use of 390 acres of breathtaking hills, trails, pastures, and streams that wind their way to Andersen Lake.
Our Mission and Affiliation
Royal Ridges Retreat is a Christian non-profit ministry. Our mission is to move one step closer to Christ by reaching the unsaved with the gospel of Jesus Christ through love and personal example. This is done through the following three points: fun, safe, God. Our goal is to provide a fun and safe experience for every camper who attends a Royal Ridges camp. We do this while also teaching important Biblical principles in the context of God's beautiful outdoors. Campers will learn new skills, meet new challenges, make life long friends, and learn about themselves in a positive, caring environment. All campers are welcomed at Royal Ridges without regard to race, color, or national origin. Our camp programs are tailored for youth grades 1 to 12. Our adult programs and retreats are perfect for groups or organizations as well as individuals. We also offer a unique combination of parent-child programs. Although we are a part of the Pacific Northwest District of the Evangelical Free Church, all of our programs are intended to be non-denominational in design, scope and teaching. Thanks to revenues from operations and the generous gifts of individuals and churches who believe in our ministry, we are able to be self supporting.
