About Camp Pitt
Camp Pitt is Pittsylvania Christian Service Camp, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit Christian Camping Ministry owned and operated by independent Christian Churches ands Churches of Christ from across Southside Virginia. We offer summer camps for children and youth and seasonal retreats and programs for various age groups. “Our mission is to engage, encourage and equip our community for Kingdom growth through the partnership of our local ministries.”
What’s Included in the Cost?
Camp Pitt’s registration fees cover all of your camper’s lodging, activities, meals and canteen snacks. Plus, every camper receives a t-shirt at the conclusion of his or her camp session for no additional cost. Campers are encouraged to bring money to camp only for summer mission. Gifts to the mission can also be made through the registration process. However, participating in the offerings can be an important experience for campers. Parents should use their best judgment.
Medical and Emergency Contact Information must be completed to register your camper. If your camper has any medical conditions or brings any medications to camp, you must see First Aid staff at check-in. All medications must be brought in their original container, turned over to and dispensed by the camp’s First Aid staff. Expectations will be made for certain inhalers and epinephrine pen, but they must still be registered with the staff at check-in on the first day of the camp session.
First Aid Staff
Camp Pitt’s First Aid staff is on duty 24 hours a day while camp is in session. If you wish to speak with the person on duty you may call (434) 927-5756. Please be sure we have current contact information for you in the event you must be contacted about your camper’s health.
Session Details and Duration
All camps are fully residential and our campers, volunteers and staff stay in our comfortable and air-conditioned dormitories. The daily schedule varies per camp session but generally is made up of three periods: morning, afternoon and evening. Mornings at Camp Pitt usually include a devotional time, activity and worship time. Afternoons are filled with recreation opportunities such as: archery; air rifle; paddle boarding; canoeing; disc golf; swimming; group games; or team building course. Evenings are a special time at Camp Pitt. After dinner campers participate in main session worship, an evening activity, and conclude with campfire – one of the most memorable parts of camp. Check-in times are usually on Sundays at 3:30PM, and Checkout times are usually at 11:00AM on Fridays, unless otherwise noted in our brochures, advertisement or emails.
Volunteer and Staff
We realize parents are entrusting the staff and volunteers of Camp Pitt with their precious children, and we want to provide a safe and nurturing environment for all of our campers. Staff and volunteers are recruited from Camp Pitt’s family of member churches and sister organizations. All staff and volunteers 18 years or older submit to a national criminal background check. Our staff is certified for their individual responsibilities (Lifeguard, First Aid, CPR, ServSafe).
