Ebenezer Ridges Campus Annual Camp Friendship Cabin Trip is in the books!
Beautiful weather, people, and accommodations –
time to enjoy silly, joke-filled banter and deep, contemplative conversations,
time to take part in lake-inspired activities,
time to create art and poetry,
time to learn and play games and
time to just sit and let your mind be carefree.
More about Ridges Annual Camp Friendship
What started as an opportunity to fulfill a resident’s dream has turned into a highly anticipated annual tradition at Ebenezer Ridges Campus in Burnsville. For the past seven years, a team of care providers from Ebenezer Ridges Campus takes residents from our care center, assisted living and memory care, as well as participants from our adult day center on a three-day, two-night camping trip to Camp Friendship in Annandale, MN.
Residents from our Ridge Point Independent Living also join the group for the fun. On August 22nd, 40 seniors and 20 staff packed their belongings and camp equipment onto three buses and into a U-Haul and traveled 70 miles northwest to Camp Friendship. Here, the senior campers enjoyed pontoon rides, fishing, singing camp fire songs, roasting s’mores, doing arts and crafts and even commemorated their trip by tie dying a Camp Friendship t-shirt.

Thank you to all who were able to attend the Grand Opening of our Ridges Care Center Remodel.
The remodel was the last phase in our campuses great overhaul. The last gutted renovation was completed in 1994. The Care Center renovation is much more than just paint, pictures and furniture, the building's structure had a full renovation as well including the roof, all of the windows, and the heating/cooling/ventilation system have all been upgraded. We are so very pleased with the beautiful and hard work completed!
If you were not able to make it to the Grand Opening, give us a call today for a tour, we'd love to show you around! 952-898-8400
4th Annual Blessing of the Bikes at Ebenezer Ridges Campus in Burnsville – May 30, 2018
Why would a care center of all places want to bless motorcycles? Especially when our residents can no longer ride them! Well, even though our folks are unable to ride a motorcycle they continue to miss the roar of a bike and the deep smell coming from the exhaust. True story. One of the residents even awaits his copy of the Harley Davidson magazine each month and then proceeds to call the dealer to learn about current prices and the waiting list for the most popular bikes!
We bless motorcycles each year to honor those memories. We bless the riders and their helmets at the beginning of the riding season to pray for safety. Many of them are staff or family members who ride. Over the years we have added other forms of transportation to the blessing service. Some come on pedal bikes in their Spandex. The fifty-six kids in our daycare haul out their tricycles from the playground and bring their bike helmets from home to have them blessed. The Burnsville Police Department joins in each year to help honor our hopes and prayers for the safety of all who ride on the roads and trails. And the color guard and rifle team from the Apple Valley Legion joins us to recall the helmets that protected and continue to protect the men and women at time of war. There is a lot of blessing to go around!
We bless motorcycles and all manner of wheeled devices (even wheelchairs and walkers!) because they are signs and symbols for us of the freedom of the open road, the happiness associated with moving our bodies, the safety for which we fervently pray and most importantly for the sights and sounds and smells that connect us to our deepest memories. You see, to have our hearts and spirits so uplifted helps to remind us of who we truly are, blessed children of God. That’s why we bless motorcycles.
