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. 

Please know that Five Pines programming is the same and repeats every week of camp. Children who are registered for more than 1 week of camp will experience the same programming each week.

  • Reduced Pricing is less than base pricing and is a seamless way to request scholarship assistance without a formal application. ​Choose this option for any reason, we WANT your children to camp with us!​​

Camp Descriptions


All campers experience a full day camp in buddy groups of 5, inside larger groups of 20. Each buddy group has a counselor, and each large group has a lead counselor (SONIC). Each camper experiences unique programming that is specifically designed for their grade range.

Here is a little more detail about each camp:

Kindergartners, for the 1st time ever, will stay for a full day program! They participate in bible, crafts, nature, swimming, and other activities and adventures.

1st-3rd Graders participate in bible, crafts, nature, swimming, sling shots, large group games, and other themed activities and adventures.

4th-5th Graders participate in bible, crafts, nature, swimming, archery, large group games, a water polo tournament, and other themed activities and adventures. These campers spend an overnight on Thursday and now experience the outdoor high ropes course and climbing tower!

6th-8th Graders participate in the same activities as above and add indoor High Ropes, Saint Joseph river canoeing, and a trip to Warren Dunes!

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.
