Sugar Pine Camp 

This summer will be INCREDIBLE at Sugar Pine.  There is an amazing line-up of speakers and a high energy band who will challenge campers to understand the "Incredible greatness of God's power"  Campers will experience super-charged games, blast off on the new High Adventure ropes course, dodge the "ka-pow" paint on the paintball course and splat in the belly flop context.

Please read the following information carefully and thoroughly.  Camp space is limited and it is critical that you follow the instructions carefully and meet all deadlines.
