Camp Pinecrest has been a summer destination where teens and staff build deep, meaningful relationships with God and each other for 25 years. We welcome everyone to southeast Missouri to experience the storied traditions that have made Pinecrest an annual highlight for many through the years.
As a family, we start every morning together in a Christian living talk before spreading out across the camp for the remainder of activities. Engaging Bible classes and Q&A sessions provide additional time to explore God’s Word. Dorms are organized “family style” (multi-age) to encourage leadership and provide support for every camper.
Campers participate in a range of indoor and outdoor activities to challenge them physically and mentally. Activities include softball, speedaway, volleyball, low ropes course, archery, riflery, swimming, dance class, rock climbing/rappelling, stand-up paddle boarding and journalism. There’s something for everyone!
Relationships are an important part of UYC. We provide open times for activities such as pickup games, gaga ball, volleyball, basketball or just to spend time with friends. Another dance earlier in the week is also being planned.
If you would like to join our staff, please note that staff workers must be 18 years of age or older and need the recommendation of their pastor. Every staff member must complete pre-camp training and make their Facebook page available for review. Some activities require specialized training or experience.
