    Pros

    Wonderful place to work. Changed my life. Will always regret not going back.

    Cons

    It was wonderful! I have no cons besides the pay I guess but thats not what it is about.

    Advice to Management

    I loved the management and completely respect them. I wished some got to know counselors better and invested.

    Pros

    Outstanding commitment to ethics and faith. They are so great with the way that they treat employees--with discipline and also with encouragement and positivity. They challenge me to be better every day. This is the best company to have worked for!

    Cons

    I can't think of any cons about this place. Pine Cove really is its own culture, which is unmatched anywhere else!

    Advice to Management

    The only advice that I would give management would be to pay a little higher for counselors that volunteer so much of their time, energy, and effort. For many of the counselors, we are college students with loans, but want to spend time doing ministry at camp and get paid not much...

    Pros

    Community is awesome and you grow so close to at least a few people (with the definite possibility for many) who are bound to be groomsmen/bridesmaids at your wedding, Orientation is long but it is fun and upbeat and really gets you used to camp life, seeing God's work through and to you is unbelievebly rewarding and not something your average employer can give you, great leadership geared toward and focused on you who help you grow and push you to learn and be a better person, And they have a huge network of former staffers who come to the year round events that are held.

    Cons

    Being on almost any level at Pine Cove is physically demanding and exhausting, from orientation to your final day: you'll be getting a workout for sure. You also don't get paid much monetarily, but compensation reaches far past money.
