Since launching in 1987, Wilderness Ridge has been one of the highest rated overnight camps for boys in central Texas. The program has been growing strong ever since. After 2 wildfires tragically burned the original property and facilities within a few years of each other, Wilderness Ridge became part of the Forest Glen family in 2016.
Wilderness Ridge takes place at our camp 45 minutes southeast of Waco, TX. Boys grades 1-11 have a blast at camp with our incredible team of counselors. Don't miss out on the BEST week of summer for boys at Forest Glen Wilderness Ridge!
"BLOBBING IS AWESOME!"
— Ben, Camper
Through designated donations and our partnership with Psalm 68five and the Christian Camp & Conference Association, we are able to provide camper scholarships based on need.
Every year, we drive across the state to every major university & college, searching for the best college students to serve our campers. We look for young men who are role models for our campers, leaders on their campuses and full of energy & excitement. Our staff is extensively trained in CPR & First Aid and are committed to serving your campers with excellence and with joyful hearts.
