WHAT IS GENERATE?

We are strategic and intentional to create experiences where the name of Jesus is lifted up, where the Gospel is proclaimed through the preaching and studying of the Word, and where not only are students encouraged to take the next step in their faith journey, but the challenge and opportunity to be a person of global impact is clear. These experiences happen in times of personal devotion, in small group times of reading, listening and responding, in group building and serving, in times of corporate worship, and in strategic times with your church. In the end, a camp can’t really change a life, but a real experience with God can. We don’t want to simply create moments. We want to partner with you and be a part of moments that matter through the work of God.

SAFE & SECURE ENVIRONMENTS

Pinelake ensures all camps align with “Our House Promise”/background check protocols. All staff undergoes state and federal background screenings, motor vehicle reporting for those who drive company vehicles, and child protection screening. Because of the day we live in, GENERATE seeks to provide the safest environment possible for your students.

Our House Promise

Our Commitment to Shepherding Your Child

Pinelake Staff and Servant Leaders have made a promise to shepherd your children and students well while they’re in our care by providing a secure environment. We call this Our House Promise to you as a parent. This includes background checks, secure check-in measures, and much more.

Shepherds take responsibility to protect.

While your child or student is with us, we’ll treat them like our own.

Shepherds play it safe.

We only allow authorized parents or guardians to pick up kids; we have security personnel onsite at all times; and we provide plenty of ongoing safety training for our servant leaders and staff.

Shepherds build trust.

The servant leaders and staff who work with your children have all been thoroughly screened through background checks and relationship. We know them and trust them.

Shepherds keep everything in the open.

Every room has a window and/or a camera so you can check in and have peace of mind. Just tell us your child’s name, show us your sticker and we’ll be glad to help.

Shepherds work together.

Every children or student space will have at least two adults present. No one goes it alone— whether in big groups or small. In most cases, in fact, three or more adults are present.

Shepherds take immediate action.

If anything seems amiss, we will jump in to protect children and students. We take every accusation seriously and investigate it thoroughly.

Shepherds establish partnerships.

Don’t hesitate to speak with a staff member or servant leader about any concern or question you have. We’re glad to help.
