A Must-Read Article For Retreat Planners
This timeless article, written in 2003, by Mike Yaconelli is more appropriate to today than Mike could ever have imagined. While written specifically to camp administrators, there is much in this brief article for retreat planners to consider as well. If time constraints are a problem, please, at least, read the parts of the article that we have highlighted. Your retreat program will be moved to a higher level and will definitely meet more people at their point of need.

Retreat Planning Made Simple
Planning for a retreat involves much more than selecting dates and a place to hold the retreat. Download our 22 page retreat planning guide by clicking on the link below. This will guide you through everything from pre-planning to follow-up after the retreat is over. This will help to eliminate the unwanted surprises encountered by not thinking about some of the details.
Twin Pines is a people intensive ministry - it involves people ministering to people and people serving people. We invite adults (21 years and older) to come and assist us. For summer, look over the brochure and download a copy of the Volunteer Application (summer) and a copy of the Abuse Form and send both forms to the camp address. For year-round, download a copy of the Volunteer Application (year-round) and a copy of the Abuse Form and send both forms to the camp address. We will process the forms and get back in touch with you regarding dates, etc. We do not accept parents as adult volunteers during the time when their children are attending camp.

Availability of Scholarship Funds
Twin Pines has limited scholarship funds available to help campers with limited resources have the privilege of the camp experience. Scholarship funds are made available through the generosity of donors who share our desire to make the camping experience available to the most people possible. Since these funds are limited, we cannot guarantee that your request will be granted. We handle requests on an "as received" basis. When the funds are all assigned to campers who have requested assistance, scholarships for that season will no longer be available.
To apply for a scholarship simply download the Scholarship Request Form, fill it our, and mail it to Twin Pines.
