Marathon Camp – The Finish Line

We have had an amazing two weeks here in Ten Mile and we are so sad to see them come to a close. The campers and staff have played hard, made great new friends, adventured together, and spent quality time with their Maker in the natural setting of camp. There’s not much that beats a sunset Vespers service overlooking the lake while sitting around the campfire – close your eyes and maybe you can feel, smell, hear a tinge of what your kids have experienced during their time here.

Stop #2 on the Traveling Vespers.

I still look back on my summers spent at camp as my fondest, not because of the games we played or the crafts we made, but for the time I was able to spend getting to know God in a way that just gets lost in every day life – and I got to do that with some of the best friends in the world. I am ever thankful for those friendships and the influence my counselors had on my life. It is our hope, as the staff of John Knox, that your children (grandchildren, nieces, nephews, kid down the street that you know at camp, etc.) come home full of lifelong memories, love, laughter, and a deeper sense of self.

Thank you for allowing us to take care of your children the last two weeks – we hope they have had as much fun as we have!

Check back tomorrow for more details on check-out and how you can share your thoughts on your child’s experience!
