When our family moved to Texas in 2002, we kept hearing about Christian summer camps. If I am honest, I thought camp sounded like the dumbest thing I had ever heard. Our church went to family camp every year, and seemingly everyone talked about getting away with their families for a week or sending their kids to summer camp. I can’t tell you how many times I told my wife, Kristen, we would NEVER go to camp.
Fast forward a few years. Our twins started going to Pine Cove’s Camp in the City. They loved it, and Kristen really wanted us to look into Pine Cove family camp. I resisted for a while, but finally gave in after dozens of people shared with us about the greatness of Pine Cove family camp.
I’ve said a lot of dumb things in my life, but telling Kristen I would never like or want to go to camp may be in my top five. The Kedersha family headed to Pine Cove family camp that next summer, and I am so grateful we did. We returned again for a 2nd and 3rd year for an even better time, and we signed up to return next summer.
As long as we are able, we will bring our family and send our kids to Pine Cove. Our family has participated in overnight family camp and Camp in the City, but we have heard great things about all of the different camps that Pine Cove has to offer. From day camp to youth camp to family camp, Pine Cove has something for everyone!
