Theme Nights

Sunday: The A-Dentures: Endgame Do superheroes get older like the rest of us? The movies may not show what heroes are like later in life, but we’ll find out on the first night of camp at the Springs! Your cabin will be venturing all over the galaxy to compete, so come dressed as your favorite superhero, favorite super year-o (senior citizen), or combine it all and come as an aged superhero like… Naptain America! Or Wonder Grandma! We really can’t wait to see this.

Monday: Fast Food Who would win in a foot race: a Big Mac or a Whopper? What about a cheetah vs high speed internet? Is this night going to be total chaos? Pretty much! We’ll be playing a big all-camp game, and we promise you’ve never seen anything like it. So come dressed as your favorite fast food place, your favorite fast food meal, or your favorite fast...thing, like a professional athlete, a car, or even a fast animal! This is gonna be bonkers.

Tuesday: Neigh-On Knights What would happen if a cowboy, a cowgirl, a knight, and a fair maiden fell into a vat of neon glow-stick fluid? Then what if those neon people had the most nebular dance party these shores have ever seen? We’re glad you asked! You’d get Neigh-On Knights, of course! Pine Cove dance parties are worth writing home about (literally). So bring your western attire, or your medieval attire, but whatever you do, throw some neon in there!

Wednesday: Lou Lou Luau : On Wednesday nights at the Springs, on Lake Louise (which we affectionately call “Lou Lou”), all of camp is going to enjoy an island themed party with boating, swimming, nomming on a special surprise dinner, and lots of Luau-inspired games (where your cabin can earn points for the big UCC, to be explained on the first day of camp). We will also enjoy a sunset and outdoor worship. Come dressed in your Hawaiian gear, ready for the chillest of hangs.

Thursday: Fortress You may want to sit down for this announcement. This Summer, for the first time, the Pine Cove Springs will be activating our new night game arena, and it’s called (drum roll please): The Fortress. The Fortress is a wooded arena where, on Thursday nights, campers will enter in the dark to compete against the staff. This night game involves stealth, intelligence, patience, and strategy. So grab your packs, throw on some face paint, camo, and other dark clothing because it’s about to go ALL THE WA

Friday: Pine Cove’s Got Talent: Springs Edition We were all created with so many different gifts and talents. Some of our talents are noticed by others, and some… well, sometimes we are the only ones who see it. Thankfully we’ve got our PCGT Judges to sort it all out! Some campers will get to display talents that they genuinely possess, while some staff will have the opportunity to display talents that they didn’t even know they had! And the campers will LOVE it. The evening starts with a nice dinner, and the show right after, so come dressed
