When I first started working at camp in 2012, it was the office assistant position. It was a summer only position. I applied so I could be close to my 2 youngest children who both worked at camp that year. In the fall of that year I was asked if I would be interested in being the office manager starting in 2013. I accepted the position with great excitement.
Not only was working for a Christian non-profit something I always wanted to do, but it gave me the opportunity to meet more people.
My family had recently moved and I was hoping to find some new friends. And boy did I ever. There have been quite a few people that have become very close friends that I met at camp either through working together, our non summer programs, our guest groups, camper families, and members of the ministry team.
So essentially, camp to me is building relationships, learning about others, helping others, while keeping Christ at the center of it all.
