Our Favorite Places:

Camp holds such wonderful memories for all of us. We all remember our summers spent at camp or the church retreats or family reunions we attended. The year round staff have our favorite places around camp as well. Keep reading to hear about what we love the most about camp!  
Adam: I like disconnecting from the internet and reconnecting with God, nature and friends.

Gay: I enjoy hanging out in the shop, tinkering and building things. I also enjoy being here in the summer when my grandchildren are working so I get to see them and get a hug from them.

Gloria: Sunset shelter is my favorite place to be. I love the water and having picnics with my family.

Heather: This place has such wonderful sounds. I like listening to the nature and having the opportunity to work at such a beautiful place. I also enjoy staying at Shepherd's Inn to retreat with family and friends.

Jill: My favorite place at camp is the drive towards Shepherd's Inn, especially in the winter, because I enjoy seeing all the deer.

Saralyn: I enjoy spending my time at the pavilion. I had a great first experience with family camp and I am excited to spend my summers there. Such a beautiful space to enjoy the outdoors while building relationships with others.
