I felt like through the challenging experiences, I was able to mature as an adult and as a Christian. I was encouraged by fellow staff members through difficult times and enjoying the relationships built throughout the summer.
Serve With Us
I really learned a lot about myself and others by serving in different roles. I enjoyed every minute of camp this summer, and loved working there.
Serving at camp strengthened my relationship with God. Here, I am able to focus exclusively on servant-hood and becoming more deeply-rooted. I have found a new love for the scriptures this summer and was able to read nearly half the Bible while at camp. My leadership skills have also greatly increased.
Thank you for the tremendous job you have done in cultivating an atmosphere at camp where young people can hear the voice of God.
