No excuse for boredom this summer


MERIDIAN — Pine Lake

Fellowship Camp

    Located on Pine Lake Road, Pine Lake Fellowship Camp has attracted campers from all over the Gulf Coast states (and others) since the summer of 1966. Its purpose is to provide a Christian camping program for youth ages 7-17 with the following objectives:

    • To bring campers into a personal living relationship with Christ, and to foster growth in the Christian life.

    • To provide an experience in inter-personal relationships based on the Biblical teaching of love, peace, forgiveness, and community.

    • To provide an experience in outdoor living so that campers may discover God’s revelation of Himself in the laws and beauty of nature, and be challenged to be faithful stewards of God’s creation.

    • To encourage campers to be open to God’s call to develop their gifts for Christian leadership and service.

    Campers are housed in a cabin of up to 8-10 campers, including staff. Activities include group games, archery, crafts, nature hikes, disc golf, ropes (challenge) course, zip line, ropes swing, swimming, basketball, singing, campfires, cookouts and more.
