Twin Pines knows it is a challenge to offer a retreat for your youth group and not get distracted by managing details. All you want to do is spend time ministering with your students through relationship building. Twin Pines Camp wants to help you with this challenge. We do the planning and managing of the retreat, so you do not. We secure the speaker and worship music group, plan the activities, feed you, and support you in spending time with your students to minister to them.

The 2022 ’s Winter Thaw theme is It’s Not About You! Look outward not inward based on Micah 6:8. It is so easy for teens to think about themselves, and not consider those who are in their sphere. Micah 6:8 provides a list of things people ought to do to look outwardly, not inwardly. In a culture which some call narcissistic, how can believers in Jesus act, love, and live differently than their friends?

Special COVID-19 Statement

As the virus is still a concern, and information from science and health organizations is still fluid, months before Winter Thaw 2021, it is difficult to provide specifics concerning mitigation policies for January and February. Twin Pines Camp is monitoring guidelines and direction from the Center for Disease Control and directives from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Prior to attending your Winter Thaw retreat, you will be informed of policies in place at that time. Twin Pines Camp wants to provide a safe experience for all who participate in what the ministry has to offer to grow disciples of Jesus.
