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.
- camp takes me out of my comfort zone
- camp forces me to do things i would probably never choose to do on my own
- camp allows me to meet new friends
- 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.
