  • Summer serve

    Summer Serve is an opportunity to come to Pine Valley for an evening (5:30 pm-8:00 pm) experience on a Monday, Wednesday, or Thursday while camp is in session. Come meet our campers, hear a SERVIMONY from the staff that serve here, and be inspired by how God is at work in the lives of young people. Your group would have the opportunity to serve our campers a meal, help clean up, serve snack, and interact with campers as you serve them. Most importantly, you get to be the hands and feet of Jesus to these kids. It’s a simple act of love that goes a long way.

    If you would like to sign up for any dates this summer, fill out this interest survey and we will contact you!

    Once you have officially secured a date for your group, you will receive an email confirmation with an attachment to forward to the rest of your group. It includes any details you may need!

    CLICK HERE to evaluate your Summer Serve experience. Let us know what you think!

    *SERVIMONY--staff share why they come to serve at Pine Valley; it is similar to a testimony.

  • Work days

    Work days consist of maintaining camp facilities, building new facilities, and readying the camp for our busy summer season. Some ongoing projects include:

    • We are working on the foundation of a new duplex cabin which will sleep up to 30 and includes a central living/dining space. Once the foundation is up we will have volunteer opportunities for work such as framing, siding, and roofing. As the progress of the building continues, we will also have plumbing, electrical, drywall, cabinetry, flooring, and other interior work. We would love to have you come help with that.
    • We are also working on a camp home where staff members Matto and Jen Reichart and their six children live.  Their house had a new addition added on this past summer and we are currently working on the exterior of the addition, primarily siding and roofing. Once the exterior work is complete, we will move on to the interior and will need help with electrical, drywall, flooring, etc.
    • Adopt a cabin: spring clean, paint, hang curtains, repair furniture, etc.
    If you are interested at all in volunteering, please submit a Work Day Request and follow up by calling the office (724) 752-1661.
