Why do I keep coming back to this one place called camp? What does that word even mean? This one word can mean many different things to many different people. It can mean excitement, like whenever you stick a tomahawk in the wood and you hear that solid thud. It can mean fear-fear from when you’re repelling down the rocky cliff and you are not sure that your belayer will hold on to you. Or, maybe it is sadness. The sadness of having to say goodbye at the end of the week or the end of the summer. Never being sure how long it will be until we see everyone together again, because no matter how much we hope, or how hard we wish we did not, we still have lives outside of Haven. With your camp family you will go through more emotions in a week than you thought you could muster up in a few months. It is these people that see you at your best and at your worst.

I woke up the other day and it was Christmas time. Does that ever happen to you? Fall is moving along, maybe there is a little snow. Thanksgiving comes around, and then – boom – it’s almost Christmas! Suddenly what was a few months away is now a few weeks away, and I’m thinking about gifts, family, decorations, putting parties on the calendar, trying not to eat too many sweets just yet (even though they are everywhere!), and I’m fully anticipating Christmas again. This year my already last-minute process got interrupted by an unwelcome visitor: Nasty Stomach Bug. It hit all of us, in the span of a few days – Scott Family down and out. Of all times, right? Not exactly my idea of a fun family Christmas activity. But maybe the timing was just right.
Ladies and Gentleman…
We are happy to announce that our second annual Oinkerraiser is underway! Help us raise money for camp by purchasing some raffle tickets for a chance to win a whole lot of bacon! Twenty bucks a ticket will buy you a chance to take home half of a processed hog (pork chops, bacon, sausage, ribs…can you say barbecue?), and will also be a fantastic contribution to a camp that is working to change the lives of local kids. Win win! Call #307-577-5267, shoot a quick e-mail, find us on Facebook or talk to your neighborhood Haven on the Rock coordinator or board member to help us out with this fund raiser! God bless!
p.s. The drawing will be finalized in January, so get your tickets soon!
Every week of the summer we invite speakers to come and talk to the campers about Jesus and life. One of our speakers was Dawn Brady Wimmer. At the beginning of the week she shared the following object lesson:
On my way through the staff lounge a couple days ago, one of the counselors stopped me and said, “You’ll never guess what just happened.” “What’s that?” I asked. He continued, “The most important thing that can happen at this camp. The thing that we hope for every week. One of my kids accepted Christ tonight!” He was absolutely glowing and I thought about how right he was. Every meal served, every letter sent, every Band-Aid put on, every volunteer recruited, every toilet fixed, every activity planned, all of the literal blood, sweat and tears that go into running camp are all to that end. That kids may come to know Jesus as their personal Savior and others grow in their already established relationship with Him. What a summer it has been, and it isn’t even over yet!! Please pray with us that God continues to bring the kids to camp that need to hear about Him and that we will be faithful servants of the Gospel!
