Shores Bible Study Theme: FAITHWORKS

You’ve probably heard the saying “Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.” Of course, this saying goes beyond just fishing. I think there’s a problem in our Christian culture. Young believers aren’t spending time with Jesus in their daily lives. Whether it’s because we’re lazy and just don’t care, or we’re intimidated by the Bible and how to pray – we aren’t growing in our relationship with Jesus after professing our faith in him. We even use the excuse that we just can’t “find time” to read […]

Friend Requests at Pine Cove

We know that campers love to be in the same cabin with their friends. So here at Pine Cove, we’ve carefully (and prayerfully) created a cabin mate request system to handle this. Our intention is to create the best environment and experience possible for all campers — those coming alone or with friends. We want every camper to have the best week of their year, believing the ultimate camp experience is to connect with Jesus. When and how can I make a cabin mate request? After March 15th you’ll be able to make a cabin mate request through your online […]

Camp In OUR City

Editor’s Note: This following post was written by Rebecca Ross, Children’s Pastor of North Metro Church in Marietta, Georgia, where our Camp in the City team set up camp for Week 3. East of the Mississippi River, Marietta, Georgia is a suburb of the city of Atlanta. It was here that we first experienced the arrival of a Pine Cove trailer and a rock climbing wall. It was love at first sight. 32 college students unloaded onto the campus of North Metro Church to leave the handprint of God on the lives of host families and campers. They sprawled out about the campus […]

Bible Study Theme: The High Fives

At Camp in the City this summer, we are excited to introduce campers to a group of friends called The High Fives. Each of these friends will help us understand a different aspect of who God is, and they will give us a real life example of what it means to be like Jesus and demonstrate His character. Each of us was created with a unique identity and one that reflects the God who made us in His image! Our elementary campers may think they know themselves pretty well, but what we really want them to understand is that there […]

Camp in the City at Fellowship of the Parks

In 2010, Pine Cove started a traveling day camp that partnered with churches to bring a high-energy program to neighborhoods across the South. One of Base Camp’s (now Camp in the City) original partners was Fellowship of the Parks in Keller, Texas. We began our partnership with FOTP because their mission aligns directly with the mission of Pine Cove. We sought out churches that are passionate about the gospel of Jesus being proclaimed in their church and in the community. The Lord has blessed FOTP with a staff that believes in that mission and He strategically placed them in a […]
