I remember going to camp as a Junior High and I was truly challenged to think about these things at a much deeper than surface level. There are times when I'm thinking about my spirituality, and I can remember hearing important words from the MIR and Don that truly shaped the Christian that I am today. It taught me how to be the type of Christian that serves and one who helps others with the journey that is Christianity. There is no tolerance at camp for the "tear them down" attitude, it teaches very good lessons for everyday life. I still use the camp's Golden Rule even in college, this is how deep the lessons we learn at camp are. With the counselors as mentors, the campers are encouraged to participate in their Bible studies and think critically about the passages.
I'm so glad that this year's theme is "No Greater Love", because no matter how old you are, you need to hear that God's love knows no limitations and endures forever. I hope that each camper that comes to Junior High week at camp comes home refreshed in the Lord and ready to take on middle school with God close at heart. I pray and will continue to pray for their spiritual growth.
Go In Peace and Love,
Still A Junior High At Heart
