The Ridge is our brand-new youth camp created exclusively for 9th-12th grade campers! Located right outside of Columbus, Texas, the Ridge is where high school campers can unplug from technology and high school stress, be influenced by our Jesus-loving, fun-obsessed summer staff, and plug into seriously fun activities!
Pat “Michelangelo” Preston worked two summers at Pine Cove before joining the full-time staff in 2008. Pat was the Men's Director at the Shores and Outback prior to serving as the Outback Director for five years. Pat is now the Director of the Ridge as well as the Central Texas Ministries Director. He and his wife, Meghan, have five children.
The Ridge is conveniently located just off Highway 71 in the middle of central Texas. Positioned just 70 miles from Houston, 80 miles from Austin, and 120 miles from San Antonio, the Ridge is ideally suited to serve campers from a wide variety of nearby cities.
“Pine Cove has absolutely changed my life! The people here absolutely love Jesus. It’s a great place to totally learn about Jesus!”
