Summer Day Camp

Safe, Fun, Affordable

Summer Camp at Five Pines Ministries is a time for incredible fun, experiential learning, and relationship building. Kids enjoy fun, age appropriate activities and learn the truths of God's Word through bible lessons, nature experiences, and relationships with counselors and peers.

 

Our summer day camp programs are broken into five age groups and are scheduled for weeks beginning June 21 & 28, July 12 & 19, and August 2. Counselor Orientation begins June 14.

  • Kindergarten (All 5 weeks)​​

  • 1st-2nd Grade (All 5 weeks)

  • 3rd-5th Grade (All 5 weeks)

Early & After Care

As a day camp, we recognize that dropping your kids off at camp more than once a week can be difficult, especially for parents who both work full-time jobs! That's why we offer an early and after care option for summer campers. You can bring them to camp as early as 7:30 am and pick them up as late as 5:30 pm. Just select this option during the registration process.
