We Are Planted There
CSL - Camp Labyrinth

CSL Teen Camps are very familiar with this location, as it was frequented by our groups from 2004-2007. Our teens created a sacred labyrinth at the Cedar Ridge Camp as a team-building service activity. This labyrinth remains today as a testament of collaboration and teamwork that are part of the CSL Teen Camp experience.

Our teens felt so connected with the campground that they chose to plant a tree on the site of Cedar Ridge Camp and this tree stands more than 20 feet tall today.
