Mid-August to May. We accommodate groups with unique needs & of varying sizes (7 to 750 give or take).
2020 is like no other year.
Out of an abundance of caution we canceled our traditional summer program camps. We did not have campers or guests on campus mid-March through July. Since August, we have been hosting small groups twice a month on average.
Our financial reality remains significantly challenging. We are grateful for gifts of any amount.
Pineywoods is a place where lives are changed, a place where people come to escape the everyday rush and to seek God. With a good understanding of the purpose of the ministry, and a knowledge of the history of the camp , those of us here at Pineywoods feel privileged to be allowed to serve at this camp, and we strive to make it an enjoyable experience for anyone who comes through the gate!
Since 1945 people have come to Pineywoods to see God work in their lives and in the lives of those around them. When in August of 1945 the Executive Board of District II of the Baptist General Convention of Texas purchased 18 acres in Woodlake for $9,000, the miracles were just beginning.
Pineywoods exists primarily for the purpose of providing a suitable environment for Christian worship, training, discipleship, evangelism, and recreation for the churches of participating Southern Baptist Associations.
The staff serves together to create a distraction-free environment where people can encounter God.
Pineywoods staff work diligently year round to accommodate every group that comes through the gates and to maintain, update, and expand the camp facilities as needed.
Each year, our staff family expands with servant-hearted individuals who serve as summer staffers. The hours are long and the work is hard, but the rewards are great!
The Kingdom-work accomplished at Pineywoods is not possible without the efforts of many people, including the numerous volunteers that bless the camp through their service each year. Summer camp would not happen were it not for the volunteer sponsors and leaders that pray and prepare for camp, then care for and shepherd the thousands of children and youth that attend.
