Camp is the place where I have grown the most. Working at camp taught me the importance of looking for God in any situation, any place, or anyone. From my experiences at camp, I learned to interact with people by looking at them as a person bearing the image of Christ. As I pursue my career in Physical Therapy, I have seen God use my experiences at CLS to shape how I interact with patients who may be going through low points in their lives. I can challenge them to see their capabilities and show them a similar love that has been shown to me through God and camp because we are all made in God’s image.
