Thoughts about camp from Wanakee campers.

If a friend is thinking about going to this week of camp, I would tell her/him:

"That it is really fun and that they should go so they could learn about God and other things."
- Catalina, Swim camp

"It's wicked awesome and you should come. I would also include what we do."
- Rodan, Swim Camp

"The counselors are great. The food is great! It's a great camp!"
- Holly, International Camp

"This is a great place that you are accepted and you get to learn about God and Jesus and sing songs and do normal camp stuff."
- Allysa, Sports and Games

Things I enjoyed most:

"Making whistles, putting on a really cool show, and making friends."
- Camper at Off Broadway Camp

My faith and relationship with Jesus grew in these ways:

"By praying and lots of singing."
- Anna, International Camp

"By reading the Bible and learning how important Jesus is."
- Jessica, Mammal Mania

"I think I feel stronger abut talking about Jesus. Also I want to talk to people about Jesus."
- Camper at Christmas Camp

"Through songs, Bible Studies and Morning Watch."
- Camper at Clay Camp

"...by listening to Jesus' work in the Bible during the devotion and morning watch."
- Sarah, Christmas Camp
