  • 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.


    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 Camp Summit:

    Summit is a high-energy worship experience for our 7th and 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 Tall Trees:

    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 at camp and then an hour-long trip down on the Dowagiac River or Round Lake that tests their skills.
