Ezekiel 34:16 “I will search for the lost and bring back the strays. I will bind up the injured and strengthen the weak”
This Scripture encompasses what we desire to accomplish each summer here at Five Pines. Present the Gospel; come alongside those who have walked away from God; help out kids who are hurting physically, spiritually and emotionally; and encourage opportunities for growth through God’s word.
Excited campers come to experience camp based on God’s Word in a fun and exciting way. We work hard to meet this core value because everything we do we want to enhance the Gospel, not hinder it. Our interactive Bible lessons are reinforced in nature, swimming, a powerful drama, Scripture memorization, crafts, ropes course, canoeing, climbing tower, and teambuilding. Our program uses these camp activities and God’s creation as golden opportunities to expose kids to the Gospel. The fruit of this is that kids come home changed. They trusted Christ and, equally important, they strengthen their relationship with the Lord.
We don’t do summer camp alone. God provides us with incredible counselors. Each year we have dedicated counselors who eagerly volunteer countless hours to do ministry. This is another focus our summer program - equipping disciples of Christ. It’s not about counseling, but about growing in their relationship with the Lord and out of that growth comes service - counseling. They have energy, passion, unique gifts, abilities, and talents. Counselors begin their experience with us through a pretty tough application process and interview, then each counselor must attend our summer camp orientation. At this five-day orientation, counselors learn their role, program, respecting other faiths, preparing a testimony, evangelism, behavior management, to name a few. Each day of camp we meet for devotions, prayer, sharing experiences, caring, and building community. The focus is not that they are helping staff do ministry, but we are equipping them to do ministry. Not only do we see the fruit in campers' and counselor's lives, but also in staff, parents, and families . . .the ripple effect when God gets ahold of a submissive heart.
We are very excited to announce our new online registration for our summer camps, utilizing the software of CAMPBRAIN.
