‘Tis the season for hospitality and delicious food! It’s a subject we could go on and on about, so we decided to take a look through the cookbook Crier Creek put out a few years ago, called Crier Creek’s Elk-cellent Cookbook, to get inspired for holiday cooking. We think any of these would be perfect […]

We love a good game night any day of the year, but the holiday season definitely brings out some of the best nights for board games. After feasting with your family and friends—and after the football games—nothing quite brings the group together (or shows everyone’s true colors) like a competitive game of Catch Phrase. Maybe […]

At camp, we love costumes. Give us any excuse to dress up, and we are all in! Whether we are dressing up to be in a skit, to perform a birthday rap, or to participate in a theme night, we love going all out in the costume department. This summer, we had some hilarious theme […]

If we had to choose a favorite season of the year, it would 100% be summer, for obvious reasons! But fall comes in a close second place. There’s a lot to love about the lower temperatures, the changing leaves, and of course, the football. Our camp teams spend a lot of the fall out on […]

The Azalea cabins have been a fixture at the Woods since 1968. We love them, and lots of campers love them. People tell us all the time about how they have “stayed in Azalea 202 every summer from the time their kids were babies ‘til they became counselors,” and that is definitely a lot of […]

It probably won’t surprise you to find out that staff meetings at Pine Cove typically include some sort of “seriously fun” element. For example, Chapel in East Texas always starts out with some friendly competition, that usually borders on ridiculous. “A game with a twist,” they often say. Some of you may have seen examples […]

For summer 2018, we hired around 1,800 summer staff across all of our camps and regions. They come from colleges all over the nation, and though they’re all here for the same thing—to serve the Lord and to serve campers—we often talk about the schools with the most representatives in a bit of friendly competition.

At Pine Cove, we are literally in the ministry of retreats. We encourage everyone to come and get away from their normal everyday lives, and spend some time with the Lord in the great outdoors. We believe in this so strongly that we even practice retreating ourselves! Over the past month, all of our regions […]

Pine Cove’s Outdoor Education program, the Institute of Wilderness Studies (IWS) quickly becomes an annual favorite for teachers who bring their schools out for overnight field trips. The hands-on science classes (TEKS-based) are top notch, the staff is excellent (and seriously fun!), and the facilities are fabulous. We gathered some of our favorite quotes from […]
