In college I worked for four summers as a counselor at a camp near where I live, and there I got some experience in how much goes into making a successful camp. Sometimes at the end of the day I would be very tired and really tempted to just send my campers to bed without taking time to do devotions, but then I would think of what camp was like for me as a camper at Kan-Ok. I remember the dedication of my counselors, especially toward spiritual things- even if we couldn't get everything else done we would make God a priority. I also saw great examples as they kindly helped and worked with some of the more difficult campers. Seeing this example not only has helped me as a counselor, but also in everyday life.
So this week I am going back. This time I'll be helping with the cooking. I am looking forward to seeing God work at camp, and I pray that this week will be a time where hearts and lives are changed and a new generation is given an example!
