Camp Wawona staff are
overwhelmed with joy at the success of this past Summer Camp season.
Girls Director, Kristina Wright, shares,"The new Campfire Bowl amphitheater welcomed hundreds of campers and staged countless blessings".
The construction of the new Campfire Bowl was a blessing from the start:
- First, Camp Wawona received a generous donation from a couple who spent their lives serving young adults.
- Second, our sister camp, Leoni Meadows, donated all the wood for the campfire bowl seating. This was a savings of over $18,000.
- Lastly, Mr. Derek Lemos, one of our camper’s parents, shared last summer that at first his son was not too excited to be at camp because his friends had attended the week before; however, God turned that experience around for good. By the end of the week during Camp Wawona's Friday night evening program he accepted the call to give his life to Jesus and came to the front of Camp Wawona's Campfire Bowl.
“My son is not the same since he gave his life to the Lord this summer,” Mr Lemos said. “Therefore, I would like to volunteer my staff to build the amphitheater you wanted to build. I want every parent to experience the life changing journey my son is going through because of camp.”
