Summer Staff Profiles: Meet Sarah Chambers

SarahAs the summer season quickly approaches, we’ve asked the Delanco summer staff to tell us a little about themselves!

  1. Name: Sarah Chambers
  2. Nickname (if you have one): None.
  3. Job: Communications Intern
  4. Age: 20
  5. Years on Summer Staff: This will be #3 (Kitchen Staff in 2011, Volunteer Coordinator in 2014)
  6. Years Attending Camp: 15
  7. High School/College: Eastern University
  8. Home Church: Sicklerville United Methodist Church
  9. Favorite Delanco Memory: There are so many! But nothing beats the first summer we moved up to camp in 2013. From the friendship of the incredible summer staff, memories like a failed tubing trip and late night stargazing and inside jokes, to counseling the best group of girls for Junior High 1 and 2, to making Delanco Camp my home it was just absolutely perfect!
  10. If someone made a movie of your life, which actor/actress would play you? I sort of love Anna Kendrick. (And we’re the same height, so there’s that.)
  11. You’ve been given access to a time-machine. Where would you go and why? I would love to go back in time and meet Jane Austen, or see a Shakespeare play at the original Globe Theater! (Can you tell I’m an English major?)
  12. What are you most looking forward to this summer? I’m excited to do something at camp that I have never done before and getting to interact with the campers in a way that’s different from all of the other roles I’ve had in the past.
  13. Favorite Bible Verse: Joshua 1:9.
  14. Briefly describe your testimony. Like most camp people, I grew up in a Christian home, raised by Christian parents. I got saved during a Junior Camp at the altar in the Tabernacle. However, I was never fully invested in my own relationship with Christ until I started high school. And my life has never been the same since!

13. Favorite Bible Verse: Deuteronomy 31:6

14. Briefly describe your testimony. I don’t have one of those big testimonies that will move you to tears. I grew up in a good Christian household with 2 loving parents who would do anything for me, and a sister who always supports me. I grew up embraced by the church and I always had a strong Christ based life. I went to church and youth group almost every Sunday and was at most the events that the church held. I grew up coming to Delanco Camp and every time I came, I felt so blessed to have such an amazing life. I knew my life was great but I never had a true relationship with Christ. It wasn’t until the summer of 2013, that I my walk with him became a true one. When my family moved to Delanco for the summer to take over as the caretakers of camp, my life changed. I had to leave my hometown, move away from my friends, and move High Schools going into my sophomore year. That is when God really started to test me. My life had changed in the matter of a month. After a summer with amazing people who helped to strengthen my walk with Christ, my life began to change for the better. Throughout the past summers of serving here at camp my world has changed so much and I cant wait to see where God takes me from here. I have never had such a strong faith and I am looking forward to grow even more this summer while serving here at Delanco Camp.
