I love camp because it's my home, it's my second family and everyone is my sister or my brother. What blows me away is not the cool activities or the fun programs, but it's the people I meet and the whole atmosphere and culture of love - God's presence is so overflowing and it's incredible that people can come and have a sense of belonging, when for some kids, it may be the first time they feel that level of love and acceptance.
I went to an awesome one-week camp (every year) from the time I was 8 to 18. Then I went as a group leader for several years. I learned how to pray, conduct my daily devotionals, how to worship, how to support my peers and seek godly friendships. I learned about the Holy Spirit. Now I send my son. It was life changing for me.
Camp was my favourite place while growing up! It was a great place to learn and grow. It was also a good break, in some ways, from the things happening back home..... chaos in my parent's broken relationship.
I spent many summers at camp! I worshipped, developed great friendships and learned to love God and people in new ways.
I love (Willow Park) camp because it's such a positive environment to make new friends, grow closer to God and as a person. You can gain so many different skills from camp, from working with different people to doing the dishes! So many opportunities!
