TESTIMONIALS:

Camp was uber-awesomeness amazing fun times. Thanks for doing the camp “truly one of, if not, the greatest week of my life.

He had a really great week, thank you very much to Jim and Seth and all you very special caring people. Jim, you are an angel here on Earth doing very important work. We are lucky to have you in our lives!

“Tommy (Thomas as he now prefers) is doing awesome! You would be so amazed to see God’s work in progress. Your leadership camp has changed Tommy’s life!

He really enjoyed camp!  The best story was about his distractible and kind of stubborn horse who would not follow directions at first… when I asked what he did, he explained that as they got to know each other better, he started to do what I wanted him to… but he still kept looking over there because he has a short attention span…. when I asked why over there? he said come here and i will show you…. well, over there is where the donkeys and a couple of other animals were housed and his horse was more interested in them than what he was supposed to be doing…what a lesson for him in the car, on the way home he also shared about some of the talks and activities they participated in, the other boys, he considered basically all the boys in his dorm group as friends, vs. being the kid who only wants one or two good friends and insists on keeping a distance with all others….
