Small but Mighty

This past week I was at Cane Ridge West in Montana. This camp ground was named after the Cane Ridge in Kentucky which I would  love to go visit someday. The camp in Montana is probably the smallest camp I will do this summer with the total number only counting up to eight people. Despite […]

Community is Key

This past week I was in the mountains of Northern California surrounded by a forest of pines working with High School campers. The camp was called the Community of the Great Commission and that name could not be closer to the truth. Every single second that I spent there I felt part of the community. […]

Our Bubbles

I haven’t posted since my first camp in Florida, so updates: I spent the past two weeks at the Christian Conference Center in Iowa and then at my beloved home camp, Tall Oaks Camp and Conference, in Linwood, Kansas. The Iowa camp was clearly so connected and has been built to be a camp of […]

I Can See Canada From Here

This past week I was at a High School camp at Dunkirk Camp and Conference Center in Dunkirk, New York. This is a beautiful camp on a cliff overlooking Lake Erie. The sunsets are some of the most beautiful that I have ever seen and at night you can look over the lake and see […]

A Land Flowing with Milo’s Sweet Tea and Zaxby’s

I don’t know where Milo’s Sweet Tea has been all my life, but let me tell you, it’s a delight when paired with homemade lasagna  after arriving at camp after a late night flight into Montgomery. Week 2 of my summer was at Camp Christian in Gordon, Georgia. Not only was it my first time […]

Desert to Sand Hills

Hey Y’all These past two weeks I have been to the camps in both Arizona and Nebraska. The two camps could not have been anymore different from each other but they were both very moving and spiritual in their own way. Something that they both had in common is how compassionate and caring everyone involved […]

Chi Rho! Chi Rho! From Indy to Oklahoma I Go.

When I found out that my first (and unfortunately, only) week of Chi Rho camp was the first week of my internship, I was reminded about something that one of my English teachers from high school told me. He said that he could picture me teaching junior high school. Junior high school kids are notoriously […]

Hope is Action part 2

God is absolutely amazing. I posted yesterday about hope in action and then last night we had one of the most powerful worships I’ve ever been to, about just that. Be prepared for some tears from this post. We began worship by being led, with our eyes closed, to our chairs by the kids who […]

What if hope is… action?

FLORIDA; TUESDAY- Quick update before I do a bit of reflection- I am currently at my first camp of the summer in Florida. I have been overwhelmed with the hospitality, but also the immediate connections I’ve had with other counselors, staff, and campers. These are all super awesome people here at Silver Springs and I’m […]
