Close your eyes, picture the morning dew reflecting the beautiful morning sunrise happening in front of you, spanish moss flows quietly in the breeze from the lake, and soft music plays in the background…then the bell tower breaks forth with noise and screaming campers descend upon the dining hall and a day at Summer Camp has started and what a summer it has been! The staff of 25 college aged summer staff have done a great job providing a fun, faith filled, and nurturing environment for all to grow deeper in their faith and strengthen their relationships.
We started with a bang on Week 1 with 106 campers which was a completely full week for us. The rest of the summer is looking promising, with large groups on week 5 and 6 and the middle weeks having camps that are nearing capacity. Our leadership programs have exploded this year with 8 campers signing up for our Counselor In Training Program and 29 campers currently signed up for our Leaders In Training program.
We still have openings in our summer for campers that would like to have a life changing week at camp. If you know of anyone in your congregation or beyond that you think would benefit from a week at Montgomery, please get them in touch with us. As always we welcome anyone that is interested to come and visit during the week or to give us a call and arrange a time to come and see what we do at camp.
