Seasons of Change: Grow, Renew, Refresh
Wow! Time really flies. It seems like just yesterday the lake was full of happy campers being launched off the blob and zipping into the lake. We seamlessly transitioned into our Fall Retreat Season with church groups in all but a very few weekends before the holiday season began in late November. This past summer & fall was one of the busiest seasons on record here at Waukaway Springs. During this time, many lives have been affected and influenced by the ministry that has occurred here on the grounds of this God-anointed camp.
As our ministry continues to grow, our Waukaway family is also experiencing personal growth. After joining our year-round team as Program Assistant, our summer Waterfront Director, Brooke Keen, began taking classes this fall at Jones County Junior College to attain her EMT certification, and is now a Nationally Registered Emergency Medical Technician. Her hard work and determination allowed Brooke to become one of the top students in her class, earning her the respect and admonition of her instructors. She will begin working in the spring to attain her Paramedic license. We are excited to add this level of training to our team which will allow us to better serve our guests.
In addition, our camp leadership attended the CCCA National Conference in Orlando, FL at the beginning of December. This annual gathering of Christian camping professionals from across the nation allowed our staff to get training, insight, and growth in many different aspects of camp ministry. This conference also allowed us time to get away, be renewed & refreshed in our spirit, and to be recharged as we gear up in preparation for a new year of ministry here at Waukaway Springs.
As we enter 2015, we are excited about the many things that God has planned to accomplish here at Waukaway Springs. We pray that you, too, have a renewed spirit and passion to serve Him this year.
