Merry Winterfest to All and to All a Good Night

Wow! Winterfest has come and gone and God did some amazing things. This year was the largest Winterfest ever with over 1,200 campers! From the ropes courses, all camp games, dance partys, and winterized versions of classics like Pitch Black Attack and Espionage, we hope your camper had a blast and also grew in their relationship with Christ. On top of the awesome camp activities, our Ranch, Timbers, and Shores campers spent Saturday night rocking out with Family Force 5 in concert! A couple hundred students synchronize dancing to the Wobble and Chainsaw…yes please! If you weren’t able to join […]

The Most Wonderful Day of the Summer

Let’s be honest, every day of camp is the “best day ever!” Still, a few days stick out more than others. We celebrated our nation’s independence day with an outdoor club and an impressive fireworks show. We dropped red white and blue balloons from the ceiling in the Rock!

We don’t just cheer for everything at Pine Cove, we celebrate everything too. Birthdays, for […]
