Few people get to view the summer camp season from the inside out the way our faithful permanent staff team members do. So to look back at the summer that was, I asked some questions of some of the folks that in the trenches so to speak. The fourth question:
Did you experience anything this summer you have never experienced before?
This was my first job, so that can be one. Mucking a lake. Jumping off a bridge! Being able to go to a worship and serve EVERY DAY!!!
There were a couple of times when I was completely honest with God. I told God how it was and didn’t leave anything back. It was amazing to see Him respond powerfully in those situations. I am not sure if I had ever been that completely honest with God, but it worked out well.
Jumping off the bridge was something I never thought I’d do, seeing how camp is run from the permanent staff POV and appreciating so much more what everyone does, and seeing so many kids come to know God is awesome.
Driving the camp truck was quite an experience. It was well documented how many trees I ran into with it. I believe the total was 8. Josiah hit 12 trees and did more damage to the truck so I don’t feel that bad. 🙂
My first time experience this summer would be the position i held being a summer staff member and being out there to see each camp and see the fun and spiritual effect that took place each day during the 8 weeks of camp.
