Sarah W.! Check out her submission about her time at Bay Shore Camp right now…
“Bay Shore Camp. When I hear these words or think about them, I smile. It’s a home away from home for me. I’ve been going since I was five and I’m now nineteen. Twelve summers of my life. I haven’t been in a couple years, but I hope to counsel again one day if I get the chance. Camp is a place I met many people and made godly friendships that built me up. Most of all, it is a place where I experience a Spirit filled week, full of Jesus’s presence.
The zip line is fast and adrenaline pumping, and the pool is perfect to cool off on hot summer days. Canoeing in the shallow bay, where you would have to get out because you got stuck in the muck! Mini golf on the hottest day of the week, going through the Bible as you play. Crazy games like slip n slide kickball and chicken baseball in the soccer field. One year it flooded so bad we canoed there! Their food can’t be compared to any other and the cinnamon rolls and Chinese food are my faves! Campfires where I had to wear sunglasses because the bugs were so bad.
Yet none of it compares to early mornings and late nights in the Tabernacle, worshiping our hearts out! It’s awesome to see how lives are changed for Christ and how His love is so powerful! The summer of 2021, I counseled three camps and it was way better than being a camper. It’s pretty much the same it’s camp for free and you get to share Jesus with kids!! If everyone could go to camp, I think hearts would be changed for the better!”
Thanks for writing in to us, Sarah! I guess when you’ve been going to the same summer camp for more than a decade, it really becomes your home away from home. Thanks for the collage of fun times and your favorite activities, food, and aspects of your summer camp journey! Hopefully you make your return to your home away from home for another camp season at Bay Shore! Thanks again for sharing.
