If you’ve ever experienced summer camp, you probably have a few stories to tell. Perhaps you met your spouse at camp, or gave your life to Jesus there. Maybe you met lifelong friends and came home with a renewed perspective on your purpose in life. It could’ve even directed your career path or college major. You probably even remember some of the ridiculous camp songs you sang.
Whatever the story may be, a lot of us can look back on our camp experience with fond memories. Which got us thinking, what’s your power of camp story? This video was recently released by the Christian Camp and Conference Association and it shows some of the challenges kids are faced with in today’s world. Technology, peer pressure, self doubt, depression - All things that bog kids down and force them to grow up too quickly. At SpringHill, we believe in the Power of Camp and we believe that kids should have the chance to BE KIDS. To play, learn, grow, be mentored, poured into and recharged. To experience God in nature, community, activities, prayer and worship.
Whether your story is about your kids or yourself, we know lives have been changed and we know there are thousands of stories out there just waiting to be told.
