I remember growing up and going to a Bible camp for a week every summer from the fourth grade through high school. . Playing sports was a highlight for me each year. I recall the year one of the counselors was blind and I prayed I would not end up in his cabin because I did not think it would be fun. Joel was one of my favorite counselors and the Lord taught me much about my shallow attitudes. Each year was spiritually impacting.
If you went to camp with a spiritual emphasis while growing up, go back and think for a moment what stands out in your mind.
I have volunteered as a counselor at a Bible camp, served at a Christian hockey camp and last night spent five hours at our county fair helping raise money at a dunk tank that helps send kids to camp this summer. If a Christian camp was a part of your spiritual transformation, consider the impact you can make for a young person by volunteering and financially sponsoring a student this summer.
I would like to hear how camp impacted your spiritual life.
Share what you are doing to help make a difference this summer.
