“There was a more personal setting with only 10 of us SLPs, and I got to form deeper connections and friendships with people I had just met than I had with any of my friends at home. We were a team, and we stuck together. I think the strength of these relationships really showed when our two weeks at camp ended. The bonds I tied in Christ at camp still remain in my daily life, and I never feel like I am alone when I know somewhere I have people that love me. I remember Ric Cyr saying in a session one time that the key to keeping the "camp high" were good friends that love Jesus. "It's your lifeline," He said, and man, was he right.”
“People at camp, talk about real life issues in deeper ways that have more of an impact. I have developed relationships and formed friendships with people that I know will never fade, because they were with me at a very important part of my life.
My experience at Eagle Bay has impacted my daily life to a great degree. I now take every opportunity to demonstrate His love to others through my actions, thoughts and words. I now know that every day will not be like Camp, where we are ‘spoon fed’ our learning through daily devotions, worship, activities that keep us all on the same page. At home, we must learn to ‘feed ourselves’ and this is the challenge.”
