About Royal Ridges


The Beauty of God's Creation

Royal Ridges Retreat started in 1978 with a very generous gift of 78 acres of land by Roy and Jean Andersen.

The camp is located 25 miles northeast of Vancouver, Washington in the tranquil and scenic foothills of the majestic Cascade Mountain range.

Our camp has use of over 390 acres of breathtaking hills, trails, pastures, and streams that wind their way to Andersen Lake.


Camp Life

All our buildings are designed to blend with nature, and provide a clean, warm, and dry environment for our guests. Each cabin has its own bath and electric heating.

Our camp programs are tailored for youth grades 1 to 12. Our adult programs and retreats are perfect for groups or organizations as well as individuals. We also offer a unique combination of parent-child programs.


Our Mission and Affiliation 

Royal Ridges Retreat is a non-profit ministry of the Pacific Northwest District of the Evangelical Free Church. All our programs are intended to be non-denominational in design, scope and teaching.

We take very seriously the trust and responsibility you place in us by sending your child to our camp.  Our goal is to provide a fun and safe experience for every camper who attends a Royal Ridges camp. Campers will learn new skills, meet new challenges, make life long friends, and learn about themselves in a positive, caring environment.  We teach campers important biblical principles in the context of God's beautiful outdoors. Campers are welcomed at Royal Ridges without regard to race, color, or national origin.   

Royal Ridges is a Non-Profit 501c, 3 Corp. Royal Ridges Retreat is self supporting thanks to revenues from operations and the generous gifts of individuals and churches who believe in our ministry.
