• Our History

  • Where did the name Camp Cherith come from?

    Cherith comes from the story of Elijah in the Old Testament. Cherith is the name of the brook the Lord sent the prophet Elijah to for spiritual refreshment. While Elijah was there, ravens brought food to him.  You can read all about this in 1 Kings 17:1-6.

    Today we look at Camp Cherith as a place girls come to learn more about Jesus Christ and have their hearts refreshed by the Lord.

    Camp Cherith (pronounced Care-ith) is an official camping Ministry of Pioneer Clubs and an interdenominational Girls only Christian camp. Our aim is two-fold: To introduce campers to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, and to help them apply Christian principles to daily living. Camp Cherith helps campers gain an appreciation of nature, develop lasting relationships, and learn new skills in a safe environment under the direction of qualified and trained staff.
