Christ-Centered Counselors

The counselors and staff at Pine Cove have a simple goal: to help kids and families connect with Jesus. Through intentional conversations, Bible studies, and worship, our staff will share the life-changing power of the Gospel with your camper and show that a relationship with the Lord can be exciting, interactive, and impactful.

Time to Unplug

Looking for an excuse for your child to have some time away from phones, tablets, and other distractions? Pine Cove is a "phone-free" camp–including our staff! So instead of turning to social media, text messages, or other outside voices, they'll be able to focus on building connections with new friends, learning about the truth of the Gospel, and being mentored by our Jesus-loving college staffers. Don’t worry–the CampLife App will keep you in touch! As campers step away from their phones and tablets, they'll get more undistracted moments to focus on faith, friends, and fun.
