Wish List

Trail Ridge has a wishlist on  This is a list of things that would be helpful here at camp. 

On this list are things for the kitchen, recreation equipment, and maintenance.  Check out the list HERE. 

Special Projects

We occasionally have needs for construction/remodeling materials like lumber, paint, parts, pieces and thing-a-ma-jigs.  Special tools and equipment are sometimes needed to keep up with ongoing repairs.  If you have any of these things you'd like to donate, please contact us to see if we can use it or have room to keep that in stock for a future project.  

Daily Needs

At Trail Ridge, we run various programs all year round.  Throughout the year we go through basic items as we clean, conduct maintenance, make facility improvements and host many activities. 

The cost of all these items adds up, and it would be a great help to have these basic needs provided by our supporters.  Items from THE LIST can be donated and would be helpful any time of the year. 

Donate your Car

Vehicle donations are a great way to support Trail Ridge

You can now donate your car, truck, boat, motorcycle or RV to the camp ministry!  If you've got a vehicle in any condition that you'd like to donate, you can contact CARS by calling (855) 500-7433 or by visiting their web site below.  A portion of the proceeds from the sale of your car will go straight to Trail Ridge.  
Another way to donate your car, truck, van or SUV would be to call Trail Ridge at 608-489-3810 to see if we could use that vehicle for our day to day camp operations.  If so, we may be able to schedule the pick up of your vehicle.  If you wish to donate in this way, we request that a vehicle be dependable and not in need of immediate repair.

Help us create a
Lego Imagination Station

We would love to create a space in our game room to spark campers' creativity and see what they can build with Legos!  We're looking for Lego-brand (no knockoffs) sets, collections, or just bins of random pieces that you don't know what to do with anymore.  To donate your Legos to camp, contact us through email at or by calling the camp office at 608-489-3810.

Vehicle/Equipment Donations

Trail Ridge is located in rural Hillsboro, WI.  In order to procure supplies for camp like food, hardware, materials, and such we have to be able to get to town.  The camp property is a total of 385 acres.  As you can imagine, there's always a lot of work to be done to maintain and make the best use of the facilities God has blessed us with.  Our facilities are very spread out, so our staff need dependable daily drivers to help us make the most of our work day.  Recently we were gifted a new tractor to replace our worn out fleet of tractors as well as a new (to us) vehicle to use for making longer trips for recruiting staff, attending special events and other camp ministry opportunities.  Below are a few items that would also be of great help to the camp.  If you have any of these items that you'd be interested in donating to Trail Ridge, please call our camp office at 608-489-3810 or email:

Skid Steer

There's always skid steer work at camp. Used for moving stuff around, working at the farm, grading roads and more.  Our current machine is getting old and just doesn't have the power we could use for some of the bigger jobs.  A grapple bucket attachment would be a huge perk as well.

Industrial Wood Chipper

Tree work is an ongoing project at camp.  We cut a lot of firewood and clean up many dangerous or already fallen trees on a regular basis.  Having a chipper would help us make use of the whole tree by using the wood chips to landscape and beautify the camp.  

Bucket Truck or Cherry Picker

This would also be very helpful for tree work, painting projects and more.  A truck would need to be 4 wheel drive. 

Utility Vehicles

ATV's, Mini Trucks, small pickup trucks, 4 wheelers, gas golf carts, etc. are all types of vehicles that would be of great service at camp.  Each serve various purposes and come in handy so often.  

3/4 Ton Pickup Truck

Having a truck like this would help us to safely haul equipment to be serviced, haul firewood around camp and various other tasks.

Other Vehicles

Over the years, various donors have given their older vehicles to camp.  These vehicles are used for short trips to town, working around camp and transporting volunteers to their work sites.  Vehicles of most use would be SUV's, Mini Vans and hatchback cars.

Mini Excavator or Backhoe

A mini excavator or backhoe to fit on our tractor would save a lot of time with the various projects on the waiting list.  

Small Enclosed Trailer

When we go to purchase food, snack shop inventory and items to sell in the camp store, we run out of space in our vehicle.  A small enclosed trailer (about  4x6 or 5x8) would help save time making long shopping trips!
