“Because of Camp”
“Because of Camp Ondessonk I’m not afraid to open my self up to others. I have the confidence to be my crazy, unique self around strangers… Because of camp I see more and have a place I look forward to every summer and have a place I am guaranteed no worry… Camp makes responsibility fun. Before camp, I didn’t know how God was revealed to me. I now know that if ever I am in stress, God surrounds me in the outdoors and nature because there is no place I can remember being so thankful for life than singing with friends around a fire, eating the best meal ever made over an open fire, sharing old stories passed down through generations, or having a friendly race with the people that seem like family after only a week because they are your family. Camp Ondessonk is the place all God’s gifts are accented and brought out in the most beautiful forms. Because of Camp Ondessonk, I am the person I am today, and because of that I am proud.” – Rhiannon F., 14 year old Ondessonk camper.
Please consider giving the gift of camp. Contributions to the campership tuition assistance fund create “Because of Camp” memories for current and future campers of Ondessonk.
Thank you volunteers, counselors, donors, and most importantly, campers. We can’t wait for our 51st summer to begin.
