Go & Tell

When something really great happens to us we want to go out and tell everybody we know, right?  So did the disciples.  They wanted to tell everybody how wonderful God was to them.  We’ll look at how we see God in the world (and in each other!) and figure out how to Go and Tell everybody all the ways that God works in our lives.  Join us!

Summer 2019 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.

DISCOVERY CAMPS

Three week of Discovery Camps! Choose one or all of them! 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-CAMPS

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!

DANGEROUS CAMPS

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

It’s always fun to spend a week at camp!  Can’t imagine summer without climbing trees, singing karaoke, and Oscar (camp awards) Night? High Schoolers get to make their own schedule and even sleep in a day or two. Sign up early. Space is limited.

BEACH RETREAT

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!)

CAMP FEES

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 lucygc@bellsouth.net.
