Camp Pinewood – Work Weekend

Camp Pinewood is a Christian camp and conference center in McCall, Idaho, that is supported by New Hope as well as ten other sister churches that are the Southern Idaho Regular Baptist Churches. The camp is run by a board that consists of pastors and laymen from our association of churches, as well as paid staff and many volunteers. Camp Pinewood’s mission is to glorify God by partnering with churches in making Biblical disciples of Jesus Christ through the camp experience. As summer camps get ready to kick off in June, the camp needs some cleaning and sprucing up. If you are able to help with some projects and cleaning around camp, please register on the Camp Pinewood website. The link is listed below. This is a great opportunity to serve at camp, get to know others from our sister churches, and have a little fun while doing so. An extra way you can help to make camp beautiful and colorful again this summer is to bring a flat of flowers or a hanging basket. https://www.camppinewood.org/
