Let’s Get You To Camp – Day Camp Edition

by Jesse Garner


Updates for Summer 2022

We are continually evaluating the latest state and church recommendations for our procedures to protect the health of campers, staff, and parents.

Day camp is just around the corner, and we’re here to help! Here’s everything you need to know to make sure your camper is totally ready for their week at Pine Cove City (and you are too!). Let’s do this!

What to Bring

We’ve made the list – now you can check it twice. Look over the packing list and pay attention to the items we’d rather you leave at home. Medication must be in original containers and turned into the nurse at drop-off. We made a handy guide with everything you need to know about medication.

Don’t forget to pack your lunch! We’ll provide campers with a snack in the afternoon but if your camper has any specific food allergies, we recommend packing them a snack for the afternoon as well. 

On Tuesday, grab your favorite safari or animal attire and join us for Who’s Who in the Zoo. On Thursday, it’s Intergalactic Rodeo! No need to buy anything special, but come dressed in your best items to fit the theme: cowboys and aliens!


If you haven’t already, fill out your profile and health forms now. It won’t take long, and it will help us know how to best serve your camper! The deadline to fill these out is a week before you come, but better late than never. If they aren’t complete, you will be required to fill them out when you arrive, so skip the line and do them online.

Drop-Off & Pick-Up

Monday morning you’ll walk up to check them in for the first time. You will be given your unique pick up code. Anyone picking up your camper must have the correct Pick Up Code, so make sure to share it with spouses, family members, or anyone else picking them up.

For the rest of the mornings, just drive on through and drop off your campers! More drop-off and pick up info here.

In the afternoons, park and bring your check-out code with you to pick up your camper!

Camp Store

Want some Pine Cove swag? Get excited about our Pine Cove City pop-up shop! We’ll have a selection of great Pine Cove gear set up for you to check out.

Closing Celebration

At the close of the week we’ll gather on Friday afternoon for a time to celebration of the week and hear from our counselors about character attributes they’ve seen in your camper. If you need to pick up without attending closing celebration, please pick up before 4pm or after 4:30pm.

Download the App & Follow Us

Did we mention we have an app? With Pine Cove’s CampLife app, you can experience each day of camp right along with your camper, thanks to tagged photos and more! Download CampLife now and you’ll be ready for a front row seat to every day at camp!
