  • • At Five Pines Ministries we offer experiential programming through many different activities.

    Life-Application Bible Lessons:
    Campers take an active role as the truths of God´s Word are brought to life through powerful drama, memory verses with sign language, and engaging Bible lessons.

    Creative Crafts:
    Our specialty! Age-appropriate crafts; designed to reinforce the Biblical theme of camp.

    Nature Hikes:
    Kids explore the outdoors with hands-on learning experienced each day during nature. God's marvelous creation is the classroom.

    Swimming:
    Recreational and instructional swimming offered daily. Activities include water polo, water volleyball and basketball. American Red Cross certified lifeguards are on duty at all times.

    High Adventure “Summit”:
    Summit is a high-energy worship experience for our 7th & 8th grade campers. With the teen-friendly feel of a youth group, the multi-media Bible lesson is thought-provoking and the band-led worship music draws kids’ attention toward God. Each camper works through a workbook, processing the lesson in small group discussion after each session.

    High Ropes Course and “Goliath” Climbing Tower:
    Exciting staff-intensive activities challenging Adventure Campers to strive to greater heights through "your choice your challenge".

    Archery Instruction:
    Campers use recurve or compound bows on our archery range under the trained supervision of our experienced instructors.

    Canoe Expedition:
    Our Adventure campers have instruction and the opportunity to paddle in a fun, supervised environment.

  •  At Five Pines Ministries safety is one of our highest priorities.
