and so, SO much more!
That's why we're excited to be kicking off our 2016 campaign we're calling #whywelovecamp.
Over the coming months, we'll be telling stories and posting photos that encapsulate all those wonderful reasons camp holds a special place in the hearts of campers, parents and families.
Our first featured family is the Hailu-Jennings family!
Judit says, "Most of all, I love camp because it teaches them God's word which is very important in our lives. And I also love the way camp teaches my girls teamwork, love and respect..."
Samaiya is 9 years old and in the 4th grade.
She says, "I love camp Gideon because it is very inspirational [to me]. Every time I am there I feel really in touch with God. Each year I [grow] closer and closer [to Him]... there is this joy in my heart that I feel, and it is just amazing. It is the best feeling in the world!"
