Community Kids and Camp Ridgedale

Community Kids

Community Kids, a ministry of Ridgedale Baptist Church, seeks to provide a caring, nurturing, and enriching environment for children in our community while also addressing the need for quality care after school. We serve Westview, Bess T. Shepherd, and East Brainerd Elementary, and CSLA. Our program operates every school day (including half-days), beginning the first day of school. We are open in the afternoons from school dismissal until 6:00pm. Community Kids is closed on all long weekends, HCDE holidays, Fall Break and Spring Break; however, we do offer a Winter Break Camp during HCDE winter break.

We have an exciting year planned with many daily activities. Some of the activities are snack time, homework, reading, computer lab, recreation, playground, game room, arts & crafts, science club, music club, cooking club, & JAM Bible Club. On Fridays, we have special speakers, kid’s choice, large recreation activities, movie day, game rotations, & Worship. For more information on Community Kids, please email us at

Camp Ridgedale (May 26th – Aug 6th, 2020)

Ridgedale Baptist Church also offers a summer day camp program. Children must be entering first through sixth grade (Exception: 7th graders are accepted when younger siblings are enrolled) to be eligible for enrollment in this program. The purpose of this ministry is to provide opportunities for children to learn Christian principles in a wholesome environment, and to provide a safe place for a parent to leave a child during the summer daytime hours. Camp Ridgedale is open from 7:30am-5:30pm, Monday-Friday. Daily activities include swimming, recreation, playground, and gameroom. Weekly activities include Worship, JAM, theme days, Team Time, clubs, Game station, indoor/outdoor game rotations, special speakers, kid’s choice, and field trips.
