Mid-August to May. We accommodate groups with unique needs & of varying sizes (7 to 750 give or take).
Retreat season is in full swing, and we love to hear from churches who want to bring their groups for a weekend stay.
We are so thankful to have served summer camp guests again in 2021. Our summer staff team worked tirelessly, reflecting the love and grace of Christ to those they served. COVID affected us a little, but through God’s protection we never had to shut down.
We are still in recovery mode from the financial devastation of the 20-21 attendance interruption and slow resumption. It will take time and continued increases in attendance to fully recover, but we trust God to provide and guide us each step of the way.
Thank you to all of you who support us in both tangible and intangible ways. Please pray for this ministry, that many souls are are drawn to God through Jesus and that our staff remain healthy and renewed to serve joyfully and graciously.
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.
