"I am definitely not the same person I was when I got there back in May. You can literally feel the presence of God once you step on to camp property. You instantly feel an overwhelming sense of peace which I can't explain. 
God has his hands on that place. 
Awesome people that work there that I will miss a ton."

"My faith went from religion to relationship in the summer of 2006.  I was thankfully raised in a family that attended church, but up to that point my faith was based mostly in rituals.  However, while serving as a camp counselor at a Walcamp Outdoor Ministries in 2006, I encountered genuine Christian community with people who had a vibrant, life-giving relationship with the Lord.  My fellow counselors spoke of the Lord as if He was present in their lives on a daily basis providing for them in each moment.  One evening by the lake I cried out to the Lord because I felt empty inside.  I had chased after approval, affection, and so many other things that never satisfied.  In that moment, I felt the Lord's presence so powerfully.  I sensed that He was asking me if I wanted more from my life, if I wanted Him.  My answer was a resounding YES, and my life has not been the same since that summer."

"My Walcamp story started while I was in Junior High in Genoa Kingston Schools. We came to Walcamp for a week for outdoor education. I remember making casts of animal footprints, and having to dance (YUK) with our fellow classmates. The food was good and it was a great experience !! Many years later I was on the GK Rescue squad and we had a call at Walcamp that resulted in saving a young girls life, I became close friends with the Doctor and he actually was our family doctor for quite a while. I and my family were baptized in the lake and I don't know how to swim and was very scary for me. I am now a board member and we have a seasonal site in family camp. Great how God has a plan for us we just need to let him take the lead !! "
