    I have been working at Pine Cove full-time (more than an year)

    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.

    I worked at Pine Cove as a contractor (more than an 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.

    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 as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great, uplifting atmosphere with encouraging co-workers. The staff trains you well and you feel welcome into the community/pine cove family. The welcoming week/training prepares you for the summer ahead.

    Cons

    The high paced atmosphere can get exhausting, but that is sort of expected with the nature of working at a summer camp.
