So this is my 9th week at Camp Swamp since I was 9 years old and I think that this will be the most impactful week. I'm so used to being in a cabin with teens slightly younger than me and there is a slight maturity difference. But this week I am in the "week 7" version of boys 8 since there is only 4 cabins, and I would like to say hanging out with guys older than me is such a joy because I can really experience what it is like to be an "elder teen" and having a really mature mindset, as well as being able to set an example for the younger campers and the upcoming teens. The older I get, the more I enjoy learning about God and getting closer to him at the Swamp. Especially ever since I became a disciple, the Swamp has been a place where I can in a way "revive" my soul and get hyped to learn about God. I especially love how the lessons are geared towards teens and are conveyed in a way that we can understand and appreciate the Bible. The Swamp probably constitutes for the large majority of my friends, and I can't begin to explain how lucky I am to have such spiritual friends in a very cruel and unforgiving world. And lastly I would like to say how amazing Mr. Jeff and Mrs. Jen are for the outstanding work they do for the Swamp and all the kids who go here. I really admire Mr. Jeff and just his whole attitude towards the camp and God. He is the person I look up to the most even for only knowing him for a few years. He is very approachable and you can talk to him about basically anything that you have on your mind. He does so much for everyone at this camp and I admire his drive and passion for what he does. He rocks! (And kudos to Matt freakin Long for asking me to write a blog for the Swamp, he as well is one of the coolest dudes I know and the work he does is so chill here at the Swamp.) Peace Out!!
