January 1st, I (Rod Vis) started a new position at Camp Kwasind. Over these past two months, I have been reading everything “camp” related I could find. I cannot count the number of times, while reading, I have said “Wow!” Time and time again, I am amazed at the wealth of knowledge and concrete evidence that points to the life-long benefits summer camps give our children. Summer camps have the ability to improve a child’s confidence, strengthen their faith development, gain more independence…and so much more. They are safe places for children and teens to explore, discover and develop, so that they can reach their full potential and be all that God created them to be. If this is new to you, I challenge you to also do some reading and see for yourself the real benefits summer camps can be.
Summer is only a few short months away. It’s time to consider how to best invest into your children’s lives. I believe summer camps is the best place to start!
