Conor became a member of the Towers full-time team after spending two summers at the Woods Family Camp. It was those summers at the Woods that made him realize his love for seeing campers' and staffers' lives transformed by God's radical, redemptive grace. Conor graduated from Texas A&M University in 2015 with a degree in English Literature and is currently pursuing a Masters of Biblical Counseling from Dallas Theological Seminary. Pine Cove has been one of the most sanctifying things in Conor's life, and he is excited to be a part of a such an incredible ministry that God is using for His purposes and His glory!

Around here we have a saying that "Our staff is our program." By this we mean that we place a high standard on whom we hire for our summer staff positions. The activities at camp are fun, the skits will make you laugh, and the music is loud, but it is the staff that will encourage, invest in, and model Jesus for your child. We interview thousands of college students to hire just a few hundred. Our screening process is intense and long, but worth it! We are committed to making sure your child is cared for physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
