June 29 – July 3 (ages 14-17)
This camp is specifically designed for high schoolers to kick off their summer with no worries about cell phones, grades, or schedules. This will be a time for fun activities, late night talks, campfires and spiritual growth conversations.
July 15-20, 2018 (ages 9-12)
Remember playing outside as a kid? Before iPhones and the internet? We remember. And we believe in the good old-fashioned awesomeness. Your kids will, too, after a great time of music, crafts, friends, team-building games and fun outdoor memories.
July 23-25, 2018 (ages 5-8)
Early elementary kids love this not-too-long taste of camp. Adventures with friends include campfires, cabin times, singing action songs, decorating cookies, making crafts, playing team games and growing in confidence!
July 29-Aug 3 (ages 11-14)
We’re pretty sure our massive 200-foot slip-‘n’-slide will be a highlight this summer. Not to mention the wide games, improv dance parties, octoball showdowns, low ropes course activities, or dirtboarding.
Are all camps overnight?
How is registration confirmed?
Can I cancel a completed registration?
Are sponsorships or subsidies available for those with financial need?
Does my child (or myself) need to have a professed faith to attend Pineridge?
How does Pineridge screen its staff?
Volunteers in roles not likely to involve one-on-one contact (eg: kitchen staff) have reduced requirements, though we strongly encourage ALL our camp volunteers to complete Plan to Protect training to be on the safe side. While we acknowledge that no camp is perfect in recruiting and supervision, we do consider camper well-being to be an overwhelming priority.
What if a camper misbehaves?
Can campers come and go?
What should campers not bring?
Our other requests are related to common sense and courtesy for others (eg: no lighters, knives, drugs, magazines, etc). We recognize that every family has their own standards for judging what is and isn’t appropriate, but we ask that campers consider the feelings and views of others regarding things like clothing and reading materials.
If camp leaders sense that something is a concern, they will talk to the camper or contact the parents/guardian to address it with sensitivity and reasonableness.
What should campers bring?
(1) Weather-appropriate clothes, including swimwear and shoes.
(2) Two or more towels (one for outdoor use, one for showers).
(3) Personal toiletry items (shampoo, toothpaste, deodorant, etc).
(4) Comfort items like stuffed animals, journal, or flashlight.
(5) Bedding including a foamie/air-mattress, sleeping bag, pillow.
Please note that our bunks DO NOT have mattresses. They are hard plywood structures. Campers must bring their own foamie/air-mattress and warm bedding including pillow. If getting a mattress/bedding out to camp will be an issue please give us advance notice and we will do our best to accommodate.
