Honoring Excellence, Transcending Traditions, and Preserving Legacies
Pioneers For Christ welcomes you to the Hall of Heroes, where legends are secured and memories are re-lived. We encourage you to reflect upon the years past and reminisce on the joyful moments of triumph.
The Pioneer Classic is one of PFC's longest standing traditions. An epic battle between two teams, Alpha and Omega, their rivalary is one of oldest ever documented in human history. Through a grueling series of physical and mental strength and endurance tests, only one team emerges as victor. We honor the team that took home the prestigious trophy along with the campers elected as Spirit winners each year.
|YEAR||ALPHA α||OMEGA Ω||Spirit Winners|
Each year, this honor is awarded to the staff member who best embodies and exemplifies PFC's core values. These are the "great" ones - the ones who've gone above and beyond, not just for the two weeks, but for the entirety of the summer. This is our small way of recognizing that their labor of love is appreciated.
One of the greatest honors that we bestow at camp is the nomination of the Camp King and Queen. These individuals are selected by an undisclosed criteria that is handed down each generation from Director to Director. We honor the following individuals that have embodied the spirit of Camp each year.

When we ask each graduating camper what their top two wishes are, the first wish is that they could keep coming to camp; the second is that they wish they had found out about camp earlier. We honor those who have caught the camp bug over and over, and over again. *Since Camp2009
Sometimes being on time means you are late. Then there are times when you just want to make sure your spot at camp is secured. We honor those that express their excitement by racing to Register as soon as they can.
