The Value of Summer Camp

Mosquitos. Smoldering heat. Close quarters. All of these things certainly bring some less-than-positive images back to our minds… images of camp. Thankfully there are other images too!

Recently in the summers I have had the privilege to be involved at Warner Camp in Grand Junction, Michigan. Through my participation there I have been reminded of many of the reasons I value summer camp.

  1. camp takes me out of my comfort zone
  2. camp forces me to do things i would probably never choose to do on my own
  3. camp allows me to meet new friends
  4. camp gives me concentrated spiritual experiences

And it is for these (and many other) good reasons that I will continue to be a rabid fan of summer camps.
