Howdy! My name is Joe “Quatro Pico Train” Dalton, and I am honored and excited to serve your campers as the director of Pine Cove Silverado! I am the proud husband of my wife Emily, and the proud father of three children – Nate, Chloe, and Hudson.


I grew up as a camper at Pine Cove and spent all of my college summers on summer staff here. Through my experience at camp God grabbed my heart, drew me to Himself, and transformed my life for His glory. I have great hope that this very same thing can happen with your child this summer as we share the love of Jesus with each and every one of them!

This summer our Bible study will focus on Elijah – the drought-predicting, trouble-causing, chariot-racing, prophet of God! We look forward to sharing with your campers the powerful way that God desires to work in and through their lives. We are hopeful that the ripple effects from what is shared and learned this summer will have an immense positive impact on the world and the Kingdom of God for eternity!
