One young camper, about eight years old, was interviewed during our closing rally (in front of 400 or so campers and parents) by one of our staff about his week of camp. Here is loose transcript of the interview:
Staff – “What was your favorite thing you did this week at a camp?”
Camper – “To study the Bible and learn more about it.”
Staff – “What are you going to do with this when you get home?”
Camper – “I want to tell people about Jesus”
Staff – “Now you told me this afternoon what you want to be when you grow up, will you share that with everyone else?”
Camper – “Yes, I want to become a missionary so I can tell lots of people about Jesus.”
One of the life’s best kept secrets is the fact that, while at camp, more people receive (and later follow through on) their vocational calling than any other place else on earth.
Blog Note: This week I will be doing a four-part post about one of the most amazing stories I have had the privilege of being a part of while at SpringHill. The story will reach an important milestone over the next few days and I want you to share in the blessing of it.
