Learn about
Summer Camps!
  
Camp Aldersgate is big enough to find yourself in! With over 200 acres of woods and trails, you can discover all the wonderful and amazing things which God created, things as tiny as a spider or as huge as a tall pine. You realize that you're one of these wonderful things, too, that you fit into God's plan and have a purpose here.
 
Camp Aldersgate has a lake for skating, fishing, swimming, boating, sailing, canoeing, baptizing, or just gazing upon. Camp Aldersgate has quiet spots for meditation and busy spots for games, campfires, or walking with friends. Aldersgate brings all this to campers as well as retreat and picnic groups year round. Our summer programs provide special experiences for children, youth, adults, families, and persons with a variety of special needs, giving all the chance to grow in exciting and different ways. Campers learn to worship, praise, sing and gain new understanding of our Christian faith. They learn about outdoor living skills, new games, rope courses, swimming, canoeing, rowing and stewardship of our food and natural resources.
 
Camp Aldersgate is an American Camping Association Accredited Camp and a member of the Rhode Island Association of Camps, subscribing to its principles of operation. If you'd like to learn more about us, call, write or come for a visit.

The mission of Covenant Hills Christian Camp is to provide experiences which enable people of all ages to grow in their awareness of and response to God as they live in Christian community and in harmony with God’s creation. 
 
The goal of the Covenant Hills Camp Program is to help participants grow physically, mentally and spiritually, within a natural camp setting; while at the same time providing challenging activities for groups, large and small. All programs are run under the guidance of caring, well trained staff members. Our Resident Camps give children an experience that lasts a lifetime.
 
Our camper development goals and outcomes are:
  • To allow each child to experience Christian community through family group living.
  • To allow each camper to discover and appreciate God’s natural world and to take an active role in the stewardship of our environment.
  • To provide age appropriate opportunities that foster spiritual growth and build relationship in God.
  • To provide opportunities which stimulate the development of each campers individual potential and to build self-esteem.  
Rolling Ridge Retreat and Conference Center

Learn about
Summer Programs!
 
Rolling Ridge offers a special alternative to traditional camping programs. Rolling Ridge programs provide spiritual and personal growth through the special experiences of conferences, summer programs, day meetings and weekend retreats. The time-honored tradition of being a people-place is enhanced by the refreshing swimming pool and the turn-of-the-century Georgian Manor. Those comfortable indoors enjoy the library and other quiet spots, while those who prefer the outdoors can explore our woodland acres.
 
As a spiritual center, we are called by God to care for people and their needs. We provide a variety of settings and unique places for programs, retreats and conferences where children, youth, adults and families experience Christian community in diverse ways. We believe this renews, enables, affirms and equips persons to become effective disciples now and in the future.
