What To Bring: Check out the Summer Programs/Trailblazers page at CovenantPines.org

Also leave electronics at home, including cell phones. In order to allow campers and staff fully enjoy and benefit from camp, we do not allow campers to make or receive phone calls. In case of emergency, staff phone numbers will be available. Please do not tell your camper they can call home whenever they’d like to or allow them to “hide” a cell phone in their belongings. We want students to engage one another and not be isolated behind technology.

Covenant Pines Mailing Address: One of the most memorable parts of camp for children is receiving letters from their parents, friends, and relatives. If you mail a letter on Saturday, it will arrive at the camp on Monday or Tuesday. No mail delivery on Thursday. Letters should be addressed to:

Life after Camp Pyro with Trailblazers

Is there a way for my camper to get involved at Colonial on a week-to-week basis? Absolutely. The weekly elementary school ministry at Colonial is called FaithTrek and is for students in grades K-5. 6th graders are invited to attend our middle school youth ministry called, CRASH, which meets on Wednesdays 6:30-8:00 pm.
