Bridge Camp

Least of These Carolinas is excited to offer Bridge Camp to children in foster care and kinship care from all over the Carolinas. Bridge Camp is for children 8 to 18 years old (still in high school) currently in foster/kinship care OR were adopted from foster care in the last year. Bridge Camp is for Level 1, non-therapeutic children.

This overnight camp is held at Crowders Ridge Camp and Retreat Center in Gastonia, NC. It is a place where they can build lifelong friendships and develop unforgettable memories. This is an amazing opportunity for children in foster/kinship care to connect with others in similar situations and most importantly for them to know they are not alone. This camp is full of fun outdoor activities including lots of water activities. We have great music and speakers at camp. We have many campers who come back and many camp counselors who come back every year because they LOVE Bridge Camp so much.
