august family camp

August Family Camp will be an unforgettable week for your whole family.

Family Camp is the perfect getaway to relax and have fun as a family. Families that have been coming for 20 years and families that just came for the first time all say that their week at Covenant Pines was the best of their summer. Our program team works hard to make sure your week is filled up with engaging activities for all ages. Our trained counselors show your family the love of Christ. Our speakers and worship team can’t wait to create a space for you to come closer to God in our Chapel services.

Our staff will be available to take you fishing, sailing, use our climbing tower, our Giant Swing, and so much more. We hold Chapel services twice a day with a separate children’s program for your kids. Ages 3 through 6th grade are welcome to join our staff during this time. We provide nursery care for children ages 3 and under. Scroll to the bottom of this page for more details about pricing, housing, and our speaker.

Family Camp is specifically designed to fit the needs of families with an array of activities for all ages. Our trained staff is available to assist you with sailing, swimming, the Red Shark, the waterslide, hydrobikes, low-ropes course, climbing tower, zipline, craft hall and much more. Chapel is held twice daily. Childcare is available for small children during chapel and also upon request during the evenings. We look forward to serving you and your family at Covenant Pines this summer!

*Camp begins AFTER 4 PM on Thursday and ends after lunch on Sunday. Dinner is served from 5:30 – 6:30 pm on Thursday.

Meals included

All costs at the top of the page, with the exception of the Tent/Camper cost, include meals during your stay. We will serve a total of 9 meals during Family Camp: dinner the first night, 3 meals the second day, 3 meals the third day, and 2 meals on the last day.

Meals for tent/camper

If you are tenting or staying in a camper, you are welcome to join us for meals or prepare meals on your own. The cost for meals are in the table below. There is no meal cost for children ages 3 and under.

Breakfast $7 (Adult) $3.50 (Youth)
Lunch $8 (Adult) $4 (Youth)
Dinner $9 (Adult) $4.50 (Youth)
3 Meals $24 (Adult) $12 (Youth)

Family Max

The family maximum refers to the maximum price that a family will pay for attending Family Camp. This figure is equal to the cost of 2 adults and 3 children. For example, to stay in Deluxe housing costs $245 for an adult and $122.50 for a youth. So, for 2 adults and 3 youths, the total cost would be:

(2 x $245) + (3 x $122.50) = $857.50

For Standard Housing the Family Max is:

(2 x $160) + (3 x $80) = $560

Even if your family exceeds 2 adults and 3 youths, you will not pay more than the Family Max.

The family max applies to members of one household.
