We find the face of God everywhere – in nature, helpful and kind people on our way, and in ourselves. This summer, we’ll chat about how God is found in the every-day world around us, things we do, and places we go. Let’s find God’s love together.
Summer 2018 Camp Programs
LEADERS IN TRAINING
Campers tell us they can’t wait to come back as counselors. Here’s a camp to equip you with the practical and people skills necessary to answer your call to volunteer at Pinecrest and pass on your great experiences as a camper.
Last year, Discovery Camps sold out, so we added another week! Expect ‘campy’ stuff at Discovery – arts and crafts, swimming, archery, biking, hiking, night games…and campers go home more independent, with new skills and experiences.
Mini-Campers are excited to have a few nights of fun and adventure away from home. Sleeping in cabins with friends and highly trained, adoring counselors who ensure their safety makes for a great first camp experience! An experience so great that they can’t wait to return!
A July camp for added summer fun! Campers stay in girl and boy groups throughout the week. Kids do some woodworking and building, make shelters, hike some cool trails, and other stuff they don’t normally get to do at home…bring on the power tools!
MIDDLE SCHOOL CAMP
This camp has sold out the last two years! Our middle schoolers like the extra freedom they get to plan their week. As a group, they meet to decide what activities they want to do. They might sleep a little late or stay up all night, but come daylight, they’re laughing and enjoying being around other great kids. (40 spaces available)
HIGH SCHOOL CAMP
2017 was a great inaugural year! Our ‘graduating’ middle schoolers begged for a High School Camp. They couldn’t imagine summer without climbing trees, singing karaoke, and Oscar (camp awards) Night. We listened. Sign up early. Space is limited.
You know that you grow closer when you road trip, right? We head to the Gulf Shores area and beach together, play together, talk, study, live (in gender specific areas!), shop, bowl, cook, watch movies…together. We become life-long friends who know and love God…together. NOTE: brochure dates are incorrect. Camp is 7/15-20 Only 26 spaces available.
OUTDOOR CHALLENGE CAMP
Pinecrest has been taking campers to East Tennessee and North Carolina for 17 years now. Campers rappel, go spelunking, whitewater rafting on the Nantahala, paddling different crafts on the Hiwassee, swim in the Ocoee, tackle a ropes course, sleep in tents, and generally discover the outdoors. Great camp. Forever memories. (Fills fast!)
Realizing that families have different abilities to pay, Pinecrest offers a voluntary three-tier fee program. You know your family’s financial situation better than we do. Simply choose the tier that is most suitable or comfortable for your family. All campers receive the same Pinecrest experience, no matter which amount you choose to pay. As you consider your family’s financial situation, please also consider the true cost of camp.
Every Child Should Experience Camp
We believe that every child should experience the powerful impact that summer camp at Pinecrest provides, regardless of income. For this reason we also provide “Camperships” (our word for financial aid), so that no child is denied that experience because of financial hardship. If camp fees present a challenge for your family, please contact us at 901.878.1247 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
