LaSata tours Five Pines summer camp ahead of reopening

LANSING, Mich.—State Sen. Kim LaSata recently toured Five Pines Ministries summer day camp with Executive Director Nate Parsons as the organization prepares to reopen to campers July 13.

“I appreciate Nate taking the time to provide a tour of his facilities and to discuss the camp’s reopening plans and safety guidelines they’ve established for campers amid the coronavirus outbreak,” said LaSata, R-Bainbridge Township. “Five Pines camp is a family tradition that spans generations, and it is great they are able to still provide this summer experience for youth this year.”

Some of the changes and safety measures the camp has implemented for this year include eliminating overnight stays, limiting camping groups to ten, requesting campers bring a mask, and frequent hand washing and surface sanitization with a disinfectant registered with the Environmental Protection Agency.

According to the Five Pines Ministries Summer Camp website, the camp is a time for fun, experiential learning, and relationship building. Campers enjoy age-appropriate activities, Bible lessons, nature experiences, and building relationships with counselors and peers.
