Why do you think camp is important?

Camp is a place where God’s presence seems surreal. Everywhere you look you see an act or an extension of God’s unconditional love. Camp gives people the opportunity to network and meet folks from all over. You get broad and great perspectives on how people see God and what he does for them. I wish i could pinpoint the main reason why camp is so important to me but there are just too many important reasons why it is! It’s an experience like no other!

What are you looking forward to as a director?

Getting a full summer’s worth being at Dayshore as a director! I’m looking forward to seeing how I can lead the charge for a program that inspires me and reminds me of God’s great love!
