pine cove christian camp 2018
Mercy Street is excited to be going to Pine Cove Ridge located in Columbus, Texas from Sunday, August 5 - Friday, August 10, 2018. Uplift Heights Primary and Secondary are allowing scholars to attend and miss their first 4 days of school. Heights Primary scholars must have had strong attendance for the school year and must attend Meet the Teacher on Thursday, August 2nd from 4:30-6pm.
Students must be connected to Mercy Street through: mentoring, sports, bike shop, or Leadership Institute, and have completed 3rd grade. Below you will find steps to ensure that your Mercy Street student is signed up for camp and that camp will be a wonderful week! Thank you for entrusting your child with us.
There are behavioral expectations (attached) that all campers must obey before and during camp. If a child has a difficult time living up to the expectations at any point leading up to camp, they may not receive the opportunity to attend or may be asked to leave camp. Be advised there will be no cell phone use allowed at camp, unless it is an emergency.
Why does mercy street go to camp?
Mercy Street seeks to step away from the noise of the city and to ask God to use this one week away to impact kids in West Dallas. It is an experience that Mercy Street staff draws upon for years to come, walking out with students the new life that Christ has brought about at camp. Camp is a privilege for students who have demonstrated the ability to exercise self-control at Mercy Street, school, and in the neighborhood.
