Typical Day

All in a Camp’s Day

Vacations should be relaxing and fun, and at the Woods, you’ll have the perfect opportunity for both! Your family will have time together to dive into enriching Bible studies, laugh together at meals, and experience high-adrenaline thrills at a variety of activities. But there’s also time for Mom and Dad to get away for some adults-only activities like golf and leisurely trail rides while trained Pine Cove counselors make sure your kids are having a blast (or having a nap!). Get excited for the most restful and entertaining week of your summer!

“The Pine Cove experience is a vacation get away where not only do you have a vacation, but you have a life changing experience that stays with you long after you leave.”
