Greetings from Pine Cove Ridge! My name is Pat “Michelangelo” Preston and I am the camp director here at the Ridge. We are so excited to welcome you to year two here, at the Ridge, and so pumped for this week at camp. As a staff, we are eager to see how the Lord uses this place as a vessel to transform the lives of campers, while having the absolute best time throughout this week.

Thank you so much for sending your camper to Pine Cove Ridge, we have been fervently praying for each moment and for all the campers that step on this ground, that they would see the Lord in every smile, skit, and worship during club. We are humbled and grateful that you have let us be a part of your family.

This summer’s theme is “Joy”. We will be opening the book of Philippians and teaching that our joy is found in Jesus. Over the next few days we will be looking at how finding our joy in Jesus affects our life, mind, goals, and our everything. We hope to reveal and remind campers to see and savor these amazing truths about Jesus which is what ultimately fulfills.

My family, as well as our incredible staff are looking forward to serving your camper this summer. Our hope and desire is that your camper will have the best week of their entire year as they get to experience seriously fun activities, see hilarious skits, interact with phenomenal staff, and learn more about our glorious Savior. We know and trust that the Lord has a great purpose for your camper, the Ridge, and even you this summer, and we’re overwhelmingly eager to live out His purpose for His glory!
