Last summer, our Chimney Point family camp parents had the unique opportunity of praying over the site of our newest youth camp, the Springs. After serving appetizers, our staff led a small prayer walk around the property and ended at the Dome so they could write Scripture and prayers on the walls. The prayer walk […]

Pine Cove exists to be used by God to transform the lives of people for His purposes and His glory. It is a joy, then, when campers share with us just how He is working that out during their time with us. See what some of our campers have had to say.  “I have been […]

Spring-y Camp Names

Texas weather is notoriously unpredictable. So much so that you can experience a snow flurry and a heat wave within a week—or maybe even a day! With the countdown to camp ticking down (double-digits, friends!) and a day or two of temps around 67 Degrees Ferret-Heit (another seriously fun name!), we decided it was time […]

A woman from Samaria came to draw water. Jesus said to her, “Give me a drink.” (For his disciples had gone away into the city to buy food.) The Samaritan woman said to him, “How is it that you, a Jew, ask for a drink from me, a woman of Samaria?” (For Jews have no […]

We’ve rounded up some of our full-time staffers’ footwear favorites from hardworking boots to comfy, casual crocs. There were a few repeats (looking at you Madewell and New Balance) but we were pleasantly surprised to see the variety in their responses.

Their alarm clocks often buzz at 4 am, there’s more dirt under their fingernails than you’d find in a sandbox, and their jeans may or may not be stuck on because of the 100-degree heat, but you’ll rarely find one without a big smile on their face. They’re the Pine Cove wranglers, and they really […]

Drift. That’s a fun word when you’re applying it to camp! Drift on a wakeboard behind a boat on the lake. Drift down a hill on a drift trike. Drift on a giant swan float in the pool. When it comes to relationships, however, we absolutely do not want to drift. It’s pretty easy for […]

One thing we hope you’ll never tire of hearing is that here at Pine Cove, “our staff is our program!” Our relational recruiting model has changed not only the way we look for and hire those staffers, but also how we interact with them the other forty weeks of the year.  One of those ways […]

Camaraderie. As we stand shoulder to shoulder with dozens of other staff, dressed in the same opening day shirt and khaki shorts, ready and willing to spend and be spent for the souls of campers, we realize we’ve found what it looks like to have true camaraderie. Where does this type of community come from? For […]
