It’s Okay to be Imperfect

Posted on Nov 30, 2017 in Camp Blog, Searchable

This summer I learned how to be patient with myself and others around me. To see when someone’s having a rough day, and giving them the time of day. To realize I won’t be perfect on a new task, no matter how prepared I believe I am for it. And the patience to accept that it’s okay to be imperfect. In fact, it’s in improving and striving towards the impossible goal of perfection that makes someone living in Christ. Rachel Cregier Counselor and Lifeguard...

No Body but Yours

Posted on Nov 16, 2017 in Camp Blog, Searchable

I really enjoyed my summer at Camp DeWolfe. I learnt a lot about myself and my relationship with God. I realized the importance of showing other people God’s love and that you might be the only Jesus someone else sees because Christ has no body but yours. I also realized the importance of prayer and one of my favourite moments this summer was at Christian Formation on the beach on 4th of July when I was talking to our cabin about some prayers taking longer to answer than others. A camper said that prayers are like mail because some take longer to get there than others and we talked...
