MY CAMP STORY!!
“Hi. My name is Brianna B. and I have been going to Pinecove camp in Palestine, TX for two years now! I love Pinecove because it allows me to learn about GOD and how he made each one of us different. I think Pinecove is the best because there is a week of fun activities, but they are all related back to GOD and that is what Pinecove is all about! I was so organized at camp all thanks to my trunk from EVERYTHING SUMMER CAMP, I also a had an awesome organizer (FROM EVERYTHING SUMMER CAMP) at the top of my trunk in which I could have my Bible in, my note pad and pens, and much more, and all my bunk mates said next year they wanted one too! I learned at camp that we should be focused on GOD more than anything else, and that GOD made you the way he wanted you to be. One of my favorite activities was the ZIPLINE, at first, I was really scared to do it because it was super high, but all my bunk mates cheered me on and I had the courage to do it. The thrill of the zipline was amazing, you could feel the wind in your hair and the scenery was beautiful! It felt like a once in a lifetime experience, and was a remarkable adventure in the sky! In the morning, we would always have 20-30 minutes where the whole camp had to be quiet and everyone would take out their bible and focus on GOD only (FUN FACT-THAT WAS THE ONLY TIME THE CAMP WAS EVER QUIET, THE REST OF THE DAY SOUNDED LIKE CHAOS!!) At the end of every day we would go to Worship at the “C.L.U.B”, where we would sing for 30 minutes and then pray after. Then we would do our Bible study and talk about what our pastor was saying that night. Then we would go outside get a bedtime snack and head back to our cabins for a shower and then bed. My favorite thing at camp was the camp store, there was so much stuff. I bought 4 shirts, a wrist band, and many more things!! I think the overall thing I enjoyed most was meeting new friends and knowing GOD wanted me to meet them!!”
