ABOUT US

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!
