About RockRidge Canyon

RockRidge Canyon is a Young Life camping property set in a breathtaking mountain valley near Princeton, B.C., Canada.

Young Life camping involves high adventure, lots of fun, great food and excellent speakers. Each year, more than 2,000 kids from across Canada and as far away as Europe or Asia, spend a week at RockRidge Canyon, having an experience that many describe as the best of their lives. From September through June, when not hosting Young Life camps, RockRidge Canyon rents its excess capacity, serving as a conference and retreat centre for businesses, churches, and schools.
