Greetings and g’day from Pine Cove Outback! Pat “Michelangelo” Preston and Austin “Bama Jama” Burch here, and we are excited about the week to come. As many of you know, this summer is very unique as we prepare to open up The Ridge, our brand new high school camp, in 2018. We will have over 350 campers each week here on property and are so grateful for an amazing opportunity of ministry.  Because of the volume of campers and the wide age range, we will be dividing up the programs each week to give more specific attention and to provide better ministry for each camper. Bama Jama will be leading our middle school aged campers and program, while I (Michelangelo) will be leading the high school aged campers and program.

We are so excited that you have chosen to send your camper here! We have been praying for you and can’t wait to see how the Lord is going to work in the lives of each camper. Thank you for letting us be a part of your family. We are humbled and grateful!

Our theme this summer is “Known.” We will be looking at the life of Paul and hope to learn what it truly means to know God, be known by God, and to make God known. Our families, as well as our amazing staff are looking forward to serving this summer and being a part of life transformation. Our prayer is that your camper will have the best week of their entire year as they participate in amazing activities, see hilarious skits, interact with phenomenal staff, and ultimately learn more about our incredible Savior. Thank you again for entrusting us with this opportunity and we look forward to seeing the Lord do incredible things this week!
