The actual experience of camp only lasts for a week, but we hope the long term impact lasts a lifetime. It isn't easy to maintain our commitment to life change or to remember everything that deeply affected us. Hopefully our campers (and staff) will be able to tuck away some small token which helps to cement those important events. It may be a shared word of encouragement, a picture of a unique event, or a small object lesson to enhance a learned truth. My prayer is that some portion will stick with us all and become a small piece of the foundation of who we become in the future.
It's part of the appeal of camp--this idea of a week spent with 160 other people leaving a permanent imprint on your life.
