Camp Calendar of Events!! 

We are so excited that we will now have a building for our events!  We can plan a lot more fun events knowing that we will have some shelter for any inclement weather.  Check out our very fun upcoming season! 

We are really going to be focusing on nature-based activities this year for the kids.  We also know what it's like to have your kiddo driving you a bit stir crazy as they ask for something to do.  We plan to help you burn some of that energy they have.  They may even learn something too.  We will be having nature hikes for all the camp kids this summer.  They will get some environmental education while they camp at In The Pines.  Don't worry though... We won't mention to them that it's educational. ;)

We are also bringing back some old favorites.  Like the Carnival, Community Bonfires and Christmas in July.  We have Bags Tournaments and "Smoker's Weekend" planned for the adults.  Don't forget our very festive 4th of July Parade , kite fest and Halloween event will also be on the schedule.  We are so excited to share  These events with you, and can't wait to celebrate the 2017 season with you!

These events are for In The Pines campers and their guests only.
