“Camper Share” is a long-held tradition at Pine Cove. On Fridays across most of our camps, including Camp in the City, campers have a chance to take the microphone and share what God taught them during their time at camp. Elementary-aged campers naturally share things a little different than high school campers, but we love it all!
For example, there was a Camp in the City camper recently who shared, “My counselor’s cool. I like him. He makes me think of Pikachu.” Does it get more genuine than that? Also, this is probably the highest compliment a counselor could get!
Now that we are at the halfway point in the summer, we wanted to share with you some of the things campers have shared with us during those times. We’re truly so thankful we get front-row seats to everything the Lord is doing in the lives of campers this summer!
