Shores Two-Week Experience

“So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ.” Colossians 2:6-8

What is it?

  • Two-week experience
  • Same cabin and counselor
  • Shores activities and theme nights, PLUS additional activities that are exclusive to OverFlow
  • Targeted Seminars


OverFlow, a two-week experience at the Shores, is dedicated to building a firm foundation in the lives of high school students by taking their relationship with Christ to the next level. The program provides both a learning environment and a training ground for students to solidify their faith, just as Colossians 2:6-8 encourages. Through biblical teaching and comprehensive studies on issues facing teens today, our desire is to inspire students to stand firm against the false teachings of this world and cling to the truths of the Bible, thus helping them apologetically defend the faith. Our hope is that as a result of the program the students will develop a passion for Jesus Christ that “overflows” into the lives of those around them.


OverFlow has been designed for the camper who wants to experience the fun, excitement, and energy of the Shores over a period of two-weeks, instead of only one week. This is done by stretching the one week experience out over two weeks, and by adding extra events unique to the OverFlow program. During their experience these campers will enjoy events that are devoted strictly to OverFlow campers. These events will be spread out over two-week period and are as follows:

  • Assisting behind the scenes at other Pine Cove camps, as well as the Shores.
  • Opportunities to serve at camp and in the Tyler community.
  • Exclusive Seminar sessions just for OverFlow (held during activity classes on certain days).
  • Assisting staff with opening day.
  • Participating in all the Shores theme nights at least once, with additional “special events” over the two week period. (For example: If they were to participate in Espionage on the first Tuesday night of camp, they would participate in an extra “special event” the next Tuesday night of camp.)

Things To Know

Campers will, at times throughout the two weeks, be doing activities away from camp. Therefore, they will experience each Shores theme night one time, but over a two week period. This will be done in no particular order throughout their time at camp.

Campers will be given the opportunity to serve in and out of camp. This means they will be helping behind the scenes doing service projects within camp, and in the Tyler area. This is not for the purpose of putting them to “work,” but to help instill within them an attitude of servant leadership.

Campers will need to pack a few additional items listed below. The standard packing list can be found here.

What to bring (Additional Items)

  1. Two sets of clothes that you do not mind throwing away.
  2. A pair or two of khaki shorts.
  3. Pine Cove t-shirt.
  4. An extra swimsuit.
  5. Clothes for 7-10 days. (Laundry services will be provided.)

*Campers will experience every activity and theme night the Shores has to offer, but over a two-week period instead of only one week. This will be done in no particular order.
