Campers and counselors are some of the many characters that make up Shrine Mont Camps every summer. These camps wouldn’t function without any one of them. We’ve asked them to #ShoutIt from the mountain what they love about Shrine Mont Camps, what causes them joy, what brings them back year after year, and where they see God on the mountain. These are the characters of camp.
What’s made you come back to the mountain year after year?
“It’s such a loving community. The people here are just awesome. It’s the place where I really defined my faith. It’s brought me back every summer. I couldn’t imagine a summer not being here.”
Where do you find God on this mountain and everywhere?
“Well the music has always been where I can find my connections. I just love getting to know all the songs and singing them year after year with everybody. And just like the spirit of all the people is where I find all my connections.”
“This is my first time and it’s been three or four days. It’s fun. I wanted to come because I’m kind of dramatic and I need to get out in the world. And I’ve never been to an overnight camp. The first night was kind of rough because it’s a new night. But then it gets better. And I’ve learned that if you set your heart to anything, you can do it.”
