Summer camp is a place where kids can practice growing up and are able to feel their way through everyday social challenges. At Pine Grove, we strive to help campers develop healthy and strong relationships and give them the tools and confidence that will follow them outside of camp. Our goal is to create the best possible camp experience for your child and for YOU!
Our motto is PG4L (Pine Grove for Life) which means once you’re part of the family, you will always be considered part of the family. Our primary concern is helping your child to discover their potential and working and communicating with you is a vital component. Before camp starts you will receive information that will help you and your child better prepare for camp. You will also get the opportunity to provide a thorough description of your child so we can better meet their needs. During the summer we will never be more than a phone call away and we will be in constant contact with you.
There are a number of ways you can keep up with camp happenings during the summer as well as during the year. The camp director (Gary Maser) has his own Facebook page that is private and is only open to current Pine Grove families. If you “friend” him (and verified as a PG Family) you will be able to receive loads of updates, pictures and video that will be available just to you. There will be daily summer photos that are posted as well as a weekly video highlighting the week. You’ll practically feel like your at camp.
