This year, we don’t have any pranks planned, but we thought it would be fun to walk down memory lane and remember a couple of […]

Construction Updates Around Pine Cove

by Chelsea ConnorPosted Mar 9, 2018


Since last summer, Pine Cove has been busy. Very busy. We have been building a brand-new camp (The Ridge), adding cabins in South Carolina (Chimney Point), renovating cabins at another beloved family camp (The Bluffs), and adding more castles (also known as Towers cabins).

The Essence of Pine Cove

by Reed LivesayPosted Mar 9, 2018


As our 50th year in ministry began in 2017, we asked ourselves, “Who is Pine Cove today?” Throughout our 50 years, culture sure has changed, and while we always strive to be relevant, one thing remains steadfast… the life-saving truth of the Gospel. CHRIST-CENTERED Pine Cove is, and will remain, Christ-centered. Our commitment is to […]

It’s Time to Treat Yourself to an FOB

by Mikaleh OffermanPosted Feb 28, 2018


Just because camp isn’t in session doesn’t mean you can’t take time to rest. We all deserve some time to relax and take a breather. Parents, raising kids is hard! You deserve a few moments of peace and quiet. If you’re not sure what those two words mean, then you’re in the right place because we’re about to […]

We celebrated Valentine’s Day this week, so we thought it would be a good time to bring up everyone’s favorite topic: dating!

The 40 Date Challenge

by Kathryn ShoafPosted Feb 13, 2018


In the busyness of life, the relationship between a husband and wife can become strained.  As they strive to provide for their children, volunteer at church, and pursue a career, meaningful conversation is sometimes neglected.  Jonathan and Mali Eaton, campers at the Bluffs family camp, realized that their dating relationship dissolved once they were married.

If the Winter Olympics Were at Pine Cove

by Chelsea ConnorPosted Feb 6, 2018


We are really big fans of the Olympics around Pine Cove. This should come as no surprise, since at camp we can turn anything into good, healthy competition. (Did someone say “Pit ‘n’ Palace?”) Admittedly, it’s a little easier for most of us to relate to the Summer Olympics, because hey, they’ve got pools, and […]

Meet our New Alumni Director

by Hannah CarterPosted Feb 6, 2018


When was the last time someone asked you what your camp name was? Well, we’re asking again! Not everyone gets to spend a summer in the middle of nowhere… cell phone off, cheering about meal time, wearing the same clothes as their peers two days a week and being known by a seriously fun name, […]
