I was 8 years old the first time I came to Swamp. That very first week I fell head over heels in love with the entire camp atmosphere, and I've come every summer since for the past nine years. When my self esteem was at an all time low and I was insecure about myself in every aspect, camp is honestly what saved me from those overwhelming feelings of inadequacy, and it's where I learned about how great God's love is. It's where I learned about how we are fearfully and wonderfully made in His image, and about how there is no part of me that God will ever see as undesirable. When I got into my sophomore year of high school I was consumed by the thoughts and actions of the world, and the friends I made were manipulative and toxic for my relationship with God, and for a long time it drove me away from Him. I came to Swamp the summer of summer 2015, and that's where I realized that I am so much more at peace and content when I am surrounded by people who are actively pursuing a Jesus like heart, and that I would be so much more fulfilled if I started to pursue that as well. I decided to start studying the bible that fall, and on June 12, 2016, I gave my life over to Christ and it was without a doubt the best decision I've ever made and will ever make.
