By title, I’m the director for the first 5th & 6th grade camp at Camp Challenge. But that’s only because…
… I have a loving and supportive family, who hears all my thoughts and crazy brainstorming ideas throughout the entire year, and invests every bit of energy into camp as I do
… I have an amazing church family who supports the camp in countless ways, and graciously listens as I ask them year after year if they’d give up an entire week of vacation time in the middle of July to be surrounded by 80-100 fifth and sixth graders
… I have an incredible, competent staff of counselors every year who actually choose to be in a cabin with 7-10 preteen campers for every minute of four days, keeping them safe and investing in their spiritual lives
… I have great friends who understand why I always become slightly (more) insane in May and June, as I spend the majority of any free time finishing up camp plans
… I have awesome campers every year who make camp totally worth planning for
… I have a wise, powerful, and all-knowing God who is the true Director, and has blessed me with the incredible opportunity to serve with such amazing people.
So, all that to say, THANK YOU!
