GENEVA Pines is a fun, energetic, and faith-inspiring week! Some highlights of the week include zipping down the zipline, diving deeper at songs and skits, and creating cool stuff in arts and crafts. Taking on the climbing tower, strategizing with teammates for capture the flag, and launching friends into the air on the blob cap off an incredible experience on pines!
Throughout every activity, campers and staff build authentic relationships with one another while growing their faith in God. Pines campers look more at how our faith impacts who we are and what we do, alongside their caring and dependable camp counselors.
The CONNECT day camp program serves middle and high school male campers with High-functioning Autism.

This day camp program runs Monday-Thursday with an option to stay overnight Thursday night in a cabin and engage in extra evening activities and closing the week Friday morning.

Note: This packing list is also included in the Printable Confirmation Packet below and in the confirmation we emailed shortly after you registered.
These items are not permitted and will be held by the counselor and returned at the end of the week.
Punch cards are the best way for Pines campers to make purchases from the camp store, where they can buy snacks, apparel, and more. You can choose the amount of spending money they’ll have for their week of camp ($15, $30, or $40), and the punch card will be on the back of their nametag. Punch cards are less likely than cash to be misplaced, and if there is money remaining at the end of the week, you are able to get a refund in the camp store.
The $10.00 Tie-Dye Fee pays for a pillow case or a white GENEVA t-shirt for your camper to tie-dye. There will be an alternative activity for campers who choose not to tie-dye. Alternatively, tie-dying is free if your camper supplies their own white t-shirt or pillow case. We recommend these items be 100% cotton, washed and pre-shrunk with no fabric softener. Your camper can cover the cost of a shirt or pillow case with their punch card while they are at camp.
