    I worked at Pine Cove as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    They have encouraging leadership. I made some of my closest friends while working here. Several were in my recent wedding. The staff have made sure to be incredibly intentional with both the summer staff and the campers, and it shows mightily.

    Cons

    Long, long hours. But that is just part of the job. You don't take a job here to be comfortable. Stifle the flesh and pursue the Spirit!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe throw in a few more off days for staff. Especially full summer. Three days just isn't quite enough to recuperate from the rigor of the summer.

    I worked at Pine Cove part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The people. I met my greatest friends while working here. I was mentored by incredible leaders who have shaped me into who I am today.

    Cons

    The work can be grueling. Some days you just don't want to wake up, but in the end you do because it is one of the most fulfilling things you will ever do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Possibly expand off days to allow staff to recover some stamina.

    I worked at Pine Cove full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Experience of a lifetime. Ability to make a lot of close relationships with like minded individuals. Opportunity to invest in the Christian community. Pay is not excellent, but all living expenses are paid for while working there.

    Cons

    Sometimes I felt trapped at camp. Most positions require 24/7 availability. The only down time is for 24 hours from noon Saturday to noon Sunday. If you have a difficult relationships with someone working there, you must address it because you're stuck with that person for the summer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The training provided in orientation is great. Keep investing time and efforts in the training and summers will continue to be successful.
