Our favorite thing about working in camping ministry is how discipleship fits so well into our everyday work and life. It is awesome to see how God uses a week of camp to change campers lives and what's even more awesome is seeing how God uses the summer to grow the hearts and minds of the summer staff. God changes lives at camp and it is a privilege for us to be apart of it!
