Church of the Brethren Camp Registration

At Camp Pine Lake, we strive to provide a Christian camping experience that is formative and transformational for each of our campers.  We utilize the resources of talented, experienced, and trained staff and volunteers, the beauty of Creation in the Pine Lake area, and some of the best curriculum the camping industry has to offer. 


At all of our camps, we take a break from cell phones and other technology to engage with one another and God's Creation
