ABOUT THE CAMP
Camp in the City is Pine Cove’s summer day camp brought all the way from Texas to cities around the country and they’re coming to North Metro for the fourth year in a row, June 5-9. This weeklong camp is for students who are currently enrolled in Kindergarten through 5th grade. Campers will experience Jesus through Bible study, worship and time with their counselor as well as participate in tons of great camp activities, including a climbing wall, inflatables, water slide and more. There is a closing celebration with families on Friday, June 9 at 4:00pm. After five days with some of the most fun and exciting college students in the country, your child will be energized for the summer and ready for their own spiritual journey. Have your child be a part of this wildly popular camp that has waiting lists all over the country!
Help make Camp In The City The Best Experience Ever!
Thanks for your interest in exploring serving opportunities with Camp In The City. Camp in the City is completely staffed by a Pine Cove team, but there is one very important role that we need, greeters! Greeters assist families with dropping off their children in the morning. It can be overwhelming to come into a large church and find the location of a camper’s tent. So, this is where we need your help!
The schedule for Greeters the week of June 5-9, is as follows:
- Monday: 8:30-9:45am (assist staffers with form collection and assist families with locating their camper’s tent)
- Tuesday – Friday: 8:45-9:15am (assist families with locating their camper’s tent)
WHAT TO PACK
Bible and Pen
Swimsuit Modest, one-piece
Sandals or Flip-Flops (For water activities)
Tennis Shoes (For all activities)
Host staffers in your home for the week
Thanks for your interest in being a potential host home for Camp in the City Staffers. This is such a unique serving opportunity that has blessed many of our families in the past three years at North Metro Church.
A host home hosts a minimum of three staff members of the same gender from Camp in the City. They arrive on the evening of Saturday, June 3, 2017 and depart on the morning of Saturday, June 10, 2017.
Some of the required components of a host home are:
- Provide Continental Breakfast Daily
- Provide dinner 3 nights during the week (the dates of those nights will be determined in May)
- Provide a space where all staffers can stay together with access to a bathroom. No more than one staffer can sleep in a bed, regardless of size, but they travel with air mattresses and are used to sleeping on them.
- Lunches are provided by North Metro Church.
Staffers have access to shared vehicles that provide their transportation to and from the church each day.

Due to how popular the camp has been here at NMC, we’ve doubled our camp capacity from last year, allowing us to host 352 campers!
No, we don’t have a traditional Vacation Bible School, as we strongly believe a full week of Camp in the City is the best use of resources and more effective in helping kids find and follow Jesus.
Pine Cove launched its first summer camp in 1968 and has grown to hosting over a million campers over the nine camps it’s grown into. Their camps are so popular they took it on the road! Camp in the City travels to 70 cities over the Southeast United States hosting summer day camps.
