Cedar Ridge has a long and colorful history. It began as a family farm in the early 1900s. In 1963, it was converted into a basketball camp by three innovators; brothers Bob and George Perry, and coach, Ted Wilson. At that time, gas was 30 cents a gallon and a new home sold for under $20,000. Larry Steele, a Portland Trail Blazer, and member of the 1977 NBA world championship team, first lectured at the camp in 1972. And in 1991, he purchased the 28 acre facility. Larry opted to expand the function of Cedar Ridge, and began renting it out to other sport teams, group rentals, and hosting and facilitating company picnics. Over the years, Larry's family has played an important role in the growth of the business, as managers, camp directors and behind-the-scenes supporters.

That was nearly 20 years ago, and Larry still owns the property with his wife, Britt.

Now, we, (Larry and Britt) are dedicated to, day by day, increasing the sustainability of the business, and dreaming of, someday, attaining a zero carbon footprint. The journey has only begun, and with the help of our staff (some of whom have been with us for nearly 20 years!), we have expanded our outreach and client base. We are glad to be part of the evolution of these amazing times, and welcome all individuals who are inspired by this beautiful environment. May we provide an environment that inspires you... whatever your path may be.
