What Did We Do Last Summer? Small Changes That Campers Will Love
At Cedar Ridge we always approach every challenge with a positive outlook and try to make the best out of every situation. Taking this mindset, we saw this past summer as a great opportunity to make improvements to our site and programs. Here’s a list of what we were up to this summer:
- Lakeview Cabins Renovation: The Lakeview cabins are located in one of the most beautiful spots in camp. Positioned in main camp, steps to the beach volleyball court and in close proximity to the shower house, these cabin are close to all the action. Not to mention the amazing view of the lake right from the doorstep. However, built in the 1960’s these cabins have long needed some love. Having the cabins empty this summer provided the time to remodel all 5 cabins. Each cabin received new windows, doors, shelves and floors. The Lakeveiw cabins are now one of the best places to stay in camp.
2. New Bouldering Wall: Bouldering is simply rock climbing without a rope or harness and is a huge trend in the adventure sport world. Our new bouldering wall allows campers to challenge themselves by completing a number of different climbs of varying difficulties. The wall will be a great teaching tool for climbing techniques and allow campers to further develop their climbing skills.
3. Shady Lane Shower House Remodel: Everybody loves a fresh new bathroom. This summer the Shady Lane Shower house was stripped down to the studs and completely remodelled. Campers will enjoy the new showers, stalls and sinks. We have also added an outdoor hand washing station to help further our health and safety practices.
4. Cedar Ridge Trail System: With 150 acres of property, Cedar Ridge Camp provides the perfect place for exploration. This past summer Cam (Feta) worked tirelessly to create a new network of trails throughout camp. These trail will be great for mountain biking, cross-country skiing, hiking, night walks and camp games. These trails also have a number of bike obstacles to challenge riders. All trails have unique names and are graded for their biking difficulty.
We are excited for campers to enjoy these improvements and can’t wait to see everyone back at camp this summer.
