How to Have Any Meal Pine Cove Style

by Caroline Reyes

meal time

Follow these guidelines and you can turn any meal time into a Pine Cove party (and a Pine Cove party don’t stop!)

  • At Pine Cove, meals are an event! Pick some crazy, fun music to play at the start of your meal.

  • Put on that HYPE song, head to the table, stand on your chairs, dance, and GO CRAZY.
  • Don’t forget to wash your hands and drink lots of water!

  • Last, but not least, don’t forget about cleaning up (everybody, everywhere!) – it can be fun. Blast some tunes, have everyone pitch in, and then head to your next activity!

Now that you’ve got the basics down, below are ways to make every meal time a total blast! Use some of these program ideas to bring some serious fun to the table.


1. Show a Random Video

2. Ask Fun Questions
  • If you could ride any animal into battle, which one would you choose? Would the animal be giant or small?
  • If you could push your nose and anything could come out of your fingers, what would it be?
  • If you could fill a swimming pool with anything and then dive into it, what would you choose?
3. Play a Pine Cove Dance Song and Do a Camp Dance


1. Do the lunch cheer!

“Don’t give me no bread, no bread!

Don’t give me no meat, no meat!

Just give me that beat, what beat?

That Jesus beat, that Jesus beat – HUH!”

2. Create a Skit

If this was one of your morning activity classes, perform it now! (or just make one up on the spot—it can be fun!)

3. Challenges
  •  Recreate or take part in a fun Instagram or TikTok challenge!
  • “Challenge” the other members of your family or even other families or neighbors.
4. Follow along with this awesome Just Dance video from the Towers!


1. Play some fun music that goes along with your theme night!
2. Ask Fun Questions
  • If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, which one would you choose?
  • If you could have a super power, what would it be?
  • Would you rather be three small hot dogs or one giant hot dog?
3. Play a Dance Song from our Top Songs from Summer 2019 Spotify playlist!

That’s it! Now you can have a little taste of camp anytime!
