"My family has been greatly and positively impacted by Camp Wamava across the many years we have been active as campers, counselors, and volunteers. Even though our own kids have "aged out", we now have other family members whose primary faith experience is via being a camper at Camp Wamava. Seeing the great impact to them and to so many other kids spurs us on to keep supporting the great mission of Camp Wamava!"

"I have found great satisfaction in continuing this mission into the next generation. It is my continued prayer that we can maintain a significant Christian relevance, and not get too in the weeds with the “good missions” to the detriment of the “great mission”."
