“I really loved being there for the first time.  It was one of the best camps I’ve ever been to.  I can’t wait to go again and I really loved worship.  That was the most fun thing.  I really loved to sing and hear the different stories and learn about God.  I also enjoyed our small groups they were fun and meeting new friends. Can’t wait to be there next year. Scholarship Camper 2016
