GENEVA Pines

Entering Grades 7-9

At GENEVA Pines, campers will rediscover their identity in Christ and learn to grow in their faith while immersed in God’s creation. Campers will engage in Bible study, take on the climbing tower and blob, compete in all-camp games, create tie-dye, and make lifelong memories with their cabinmates. With counselors as their role models, campers will praise Christ together, spend time in the Word, and pray to our God who loves us and calls us into a life of love.
