Summer Has Arrived!

It’s been a long winter. Snow, ice, and below normal temperatures have not been the best indicator that summer will be upon us in a month and a half! While the past few weeks have been filled with chilling weather we have at least one sign that camp is soon. The annual marking of “I CAN’T BELIEVE HOW CLOSE SUMMER IS” has happened.

On March 21st, we interviewed several young adults who have felt the call to serve with us throughout the entire summer. These young adults come from all over the conference, from different colleges, from different churches, and from different camp experiences. Some have spent every possible opportunity on property, coming to camps, retreats, and even counseling. Realizing that God is not done with them yet, some have reapplied from previous Summer Staffs. A few are new. They have little to no Lakeshore experience, but something, we know it’s God, has called them to serve. All of these young adults have shown and demonstrated that God is truly at work in their lives. They have a passion to share the gospel. They are each determined to not simply just speak of God’s grace and love, but to live it out by sacrificing their summer to love, care for, nurture, and teach all the campers that will call Lakeshore home this summer. As you can tell, we are pretty impressed and excited to have such a wonderful group.
