            Summer Camps

During the months of June and July Summer Mountaintop Campers climbed the 7 highest mountains on the 7 continents! 

During June they explored Mt Everest in Asia as part of their VBS experience, did a walkabout at Mt Kosciuszko in Australia, ate some authentic  African food on Mt Kilimanjaro and made a new Russian friend on Mt Elbrus in Europe.  In July they had their own Iditarod races at Denali in Alaska, learned Spanish at Cerro Aconcagua in Argentina, and had an educational lesson and visit at SeaWorld at the Vinson Massif in Antarctica. 

They concluded their expedition by spending a week with Cedarkirk staffers who taught them the importance of having the correct equipment, partners, and guide to reach the summit. Along the way they confronted some of the mountains in their lives.  They learned to keep climbing, even when the way is hard. 

Our campers also learned the importance of helping others along the way.  The counted granola bars for hungry children and shopped for school supplies to help other children have the right equipment to start the school year. 

Thank you for supporting this important program as we provide a safe, fun, and educational experience for the children of our community.

Granola Bar Drive for Children’s Healthy Pantry
Pine Shores has set a goal to collect 10,000 granola bars to support the Children’s Healthy Pantry. The purpose of the Children’s Healthy Pantry is to ensure at risk children have additional food during the school day so they can concentrate on their school activities rather than the emptiness in their stomachs.
