I was only a camper at Crossroads for two summers but I had the fortune of being on staff for several years afterwards. I started with the LIT program in 1997, got to be part of the first year of the Bridge program in 1999 (at that time we called it 8-4-6) and then was able to enjoy being on the Summer Team for four years starting in 2000. I actually remember being part of the prep and planning for the 20th anniversary!

During my years at camp, I was given the opportunity to cabin lead, work in the kitchen, lead chapels and run a lot of the different programs, including running the waterfront and serving as one of Camp’s program directors. Those leadership opportunities played a huge role in shaping me early in my adult years and in the ministry God was calling me to. Those experiences challenged me, allowed me to learn from a huge number of other leaders, young and old, and helped set the direction for my life. Camp was also where I first experienced God speak to me in a direct way, and that’s something I will never forget.

For me, remembering my experiences at Camp Crossroads brings back some amazing memories. There are lessons I learned there and people I met whose impact are still felt in my life┬átoday. I’m grateful for the chance to have been part of the work and ministry that God has been doing through so many incredible people over the past 40 years!
