Reaction to Way of Life Christian Camp 2012

"This last week I went to Way of Life Christian Camp. Arriving on Sunday I did not realize the things I was about to learn and leave with that Friday evening. That week, new relationships were made and the old ones were made stronger, not only with friends but also with God. I learned that being the one standing out in the crowd was not a bad thing. It was actually a good thing if it was showing the light of Jesus Christ. During camp we called this "swimming upstream" and not being the one going with the flow. Being at camp really changed the way I look at my life and other people on this earth. Talking to the people in my cabin, I realized that I tend to judge people by their cover and not really what's inside. This is something that I am looking forward to changing about myself by getting to know people better and not judging them. I am also planning on setting a better example for the people at my school and in my community. I am going to make my example shown and noticed. Looking at my life, I have never realized how great of a life I actually have and I am so very grateful for everybody in it. Camp impacted me in a way I never thought was possible. This was because I didn't think a camp so new in my life (the location) would really change me the way it did. I thought a new location would change the way things worked and the feeling of everything around me, but I didn't realize how much better it would be. I got to meet some amazing people and experience some great things. I was one of those people who contemplated going to camp this year and I regret that deeply. I am so thankful for the people who convinced me to go because I had the time of my life. Way of Life Christian Camp week 2012 was so amazing and I am looking forward to keeping in touch with everybody, especially my cabin 4 ladies. I thank everybody who made this camp happen! Love you all!" - Abigayle Demchak (17yr. - Marysville, OH)
