Challenged by God

Posted on Sep 30, 2015 in Camp Blog, Searchable

Camp DeWolfe is such a wonderful place to come and experience God and I am grateful that I got the opportunity to work at Camp DeWolfe again this summer. I say ‘work’, but in all honesty it didn’t feel like work at all, due to the homely feel that camp brings about and the amazing staff that have become close friends. This year, I felt God wanted me to take on more challenges and boy was I challenged! I led canoeing this was very fulfilling as I got to teach the campers and watch them attempt things that were terrifying for them and then progressing from that. Seeing campers...

Working at Camp Dewolfe has been the most rewarding experience. I never expected a summer to change my outlook on life so much; I feel I have become more mature, more content in my faith and confident in my abilities.

My summer story

Posted on Sep 11, 2015 in Camp Blog, Searchable

During the Summer of 2015, I was blessed to be apart of a Christian Camp. Through Camp DeWolfe I learned so many things; not only about camp, but also about myself. I now know that I can take charge and be a leader. In my life previous to being a camp counselor, I never stepped forward to do things simply because I was afraid of being the center of attention. Now, I am always eager to lead and set a good example; not only for campers, but also for my fellow colleagues who need the motivation. I have learned how to experience God through nature, which I have never deemed possible for the...
