Pine Cone Camp offers a variety of fun and dynamic activities during Summer Camp. Our goal is to recognize the individuality of each child, and plan diverse activities that meet each child’s individual needs. We believe that our summer camp is an ideal place to create special memories that last a lifetime.

June 29 – July 3
Children are naturally curious about their world, so pack your binoculars and join us as we explore the environment around us! Summer is a great time to observe the lives of various local insects, birds, and mammals. Children will have the opportunity to develop their inquiring minds, curiosity, and wonder, all while learning how every creature plays an important role in our ecosystem.
July 6 – July 17
Farming & Gardening
As the sun’s still shining and the weather is nice and hot, it is a great time to appreciate some of Mother Nature’s wonderful gifts. Children will participate in planting different seeds and plants. Throughout the summer they will take care of their garden, watch them grow, and harvest the produce as they ripen. Gardening and farming are the best tools to teach creativity, discovery, nutrition, health and fitness, responsibility, and appreciation of food that they have.
July 20 – July 31
Arts & Crafts from Around the World!
Grab your passports and join us on our exploration of art from around the world! Campers will experience art from global cultures and try their hands at various traditional art techniques.
