Summer Camp 2021

We are so excited to share that we will be returning to Spirit in the Pines for the summer of 2021. Just in time to celebrate 20 years of ministry at our beloved property!

Throughout all those years, camp has been central to our ministry at St. Andrew, where safety is essential, our fun is kind, our message of God’s love is invitational and engaging, our relationships are affirming, and everyone is valued when we come together to build sacred community.

We are actively preparing for the ways that the COVID-19 pandemic may continue to shape decisions…yet the spirit of community at camp will feel the same and we know each camper will leave saying, “this was the best week of my summer!”

We hope to see you this summer!
