How Summer Camp Helped Shape A Young Girl’s Life
We believe that summer camp will help shape your future. Often times we receive letters describing how Camp Highland has helped shape their life in some way. This letter in particular is from a young girl who came through our program as a camper and as a counselor. She speaks about how her experience helped shape the trajectory of her life.
It was so nice to meet you this morning.
Camp Highland holds a very special place in my heart. In elementary school, I was a camper at the day camp. At the time, the camp was held at North Point Community Church. I loved spending my summers there, and my parents loved that I was having fun while being surrounded in a Christ-centered environment.
When I was 15, I applied for a counselor position at the day camp and spent my summer there. When I first started working at the camp, I thought that my primary goal was to lead and motivate the kids in my group. However, as the summer progressed, I realized that God brought me there for a greater purpose. Each week, the kids in my group inspired me to live better, be better, and not be afraid to let Christ’s light shine through me.
I am now going into my senior year of college. My experience from Camp Highland still plays a role in my life today. Thank you for leading such an amazing Christ-centered organization!
