Can you spot me in the photo above? I’m rocking the tie-dye shirt on the right. This throw-back photo is almost 7 years old. 7 summers ago I spent a week at Jumonville Camp and left forever changed. That summer would be my 4th and last summer going to camp. Now, I would do anything to be able to spend another week at summer camp.
Jumonville Camp has impacted my life and faith in many positive ways. That is why I am so excited to have this organization partner with JP Ministries. In this post, I want to introduce Jumonville and share their heart and vision. Once a month for the next 6 months, we will share stories about how Jumonville changes lives, why you should send your child to camp, and why you should consider working on staff for Jumonville.
