Kidder Creek Custom Adventures

Real Adventures, outdoors in God's creation

Journey from the noise and distractions of daily life to be challenged and refreshed through adventures in God's Creation. Kidder Creek is Northern California's premier adventure camp where relationships are strengthened through shared experiences and quality time with your group. Our adventure programs allow you to package a fully customizable experience for your group that will challenge and inspire them to live lives transformed by Jesus.


Your base-camp for adventure

Near the California / Oregon border in the mountains with rafting, rock-climbing, cliff-jumping and mountain biking close by. An easy half-day drive from both the San Francisco Bay and Portland Metro areas.

"Kidder Creek strips down life to what is essential. It's all about relationships, experience and challenge; and so when we come away from the trip our relationships with each other and with God are stronger."
