Amplify is a two-week experience full of activities, theme nights, skits, worship, and Bible study. It is one of four two-week experience programs that Pine Cove offers, along with Cultivate at the Outback, Rooted at the Ranch, and Overflow at the Shores. Each program comes from Colossians 2:6-7 which says, “So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened (amplify) in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.”
Amplify is specifically designed to help strengthen your faith in the midst of a culture that is trying to weaken it. It is our hope that this program will empower you to stand up to the pressures of society by emphasizing three basic concepts: to know your faith by understanding who God is, to find your identity in Him, and to equip you to be able to share your faith and advance His kingdom. You will still have the opportunity to participate in the same activities and theme nights as one week campers, but you will also be able to attend in-depth lessons on key topics, serve behind the scenes, and get to see a side of camp that most campers have never seen, all while having the same counselor. Overall, we hope that your faith is strengthened or amplified during these next two weeks!
Campers will, at times throughout the two weeks, be doing activities away from camp. Therefore, they will experience each Timbers 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.
