“Do you like having fun? Getting to know God? Making new friends? Then you’ll be coming to Camp WaMaVa this year! I can’t wait to make new memories with campers in a time where we all need that connection, and I’m looking forward to all the new memories we’ll create. And as John F. Kennedy said, the only thing to fear is missing a WaMaVa campfire.”

“Camp has always been the place in which I see God the most. Whether it be my friendships, the people I interact with briefly, fireflies in July, or Cheryl’s medicinal hugs, I’ve never come to WaMaVa and not felt the love of the Lord in every aspect of this place. I came here this year in hopes that I could be just one of the many vessels of love that campers will experience in their time here this summer.”
