Church Camp Helped Form My Faith

By Jeanette: Alumnus, Donor, and Parent
“I began attending THE ARK (formerly Rainbow Christian Camp) when I was in 2nd grade. My grandfather, Richard Maple, served on Pearson’s Mill and RCC's board of directors for many years. His enthusiasm and passion for camp made me excited to attend! Church camp played a vital role in the formation of my faith. I never missed a week of camp each summer. I even had the opportunity to serve on staff for a few summers during high school. I can recall life-changing moments during my weeks at camp, specifically a week of Extra Chance with Dave Wheeler. I truly felt God move through us that week. Now, my children can’t wait to attend. They come home with new friends, stories, and, most importantly, a stronger faith from the experience. Camp has changed so much since I attended. The facilities are bigger but so is the reach. My husband and I feel fortunate to be able to give part of our tithe to THE ARK. God laid it on our hearts after our kids started attending to support the work of the camp. The mission that Rod and Bev Cameron started, and is being continued by Bruce and Pamie, is second to none.  I fully believe God has blessed THE ARK, its leadership, staff, missionaries, supporters, and all the campers who attend each year.”
