The 2019 Summer has been an amazing time of growth personally. I was able to build real, lasting relationships with campers and staff. Even when I take a role of teaching campers about Jesus I find that they teach me as much as I'm teaching them. One thing I really appreciated about my summer was being able to speak about two things that are vitally important personally. Having the flexibility to speak about both Jesus and protecting the forest was a unique experience I will always cherish, and the passion that I brought to those topics was really experienced by campers. Overall, this has been a great summer and I'm so appreciative that God has given me the opportunity!

Working at Calvin Crest is the most fulfilling way I could imagine spending my summers. When I’m at Calvin Crest, I find myself constantly surrounded by supportive staffers, eager campers who are ready to learn and have fun, and God’s beautiful creation. Summers at camp are packed with fun from participating in the magic of Sherwood, bonding with friends, and creating relationships with campers. When I found myself stretched, I realized I was growing spiritually, as a team player, and as a leader. Calvin Crest is unique in its beautiful ministry and programs. I’ll never forget the loudness of Sherwood or joyful laughter from Week in the Forest. I walk away from summers feeling full of life and love. God’s Kingdom truly does shine here.

Summer camp at Calvin Crest was an incredible experience. I found a community that I could contribute to, and in return they supported me. The blessings and friendships I gained from this summer are continually blessing me to this day.

Serving on summer staff over the past few is always the highlight of my year. It is a chance to reset and refocus your life on serving the Lord. It is a chance to experience healing and growth and it is a chance to connect with a community of believers all focused on the same goal of serving those who come to visit Calvin Crest.

Working at Calvin Crest this summer was an experience that went far beyond what would be expected of a regular summer job. This was a job that was both rewarding and fulfilling in an abundance of ways. Being a part of the Calvin Crest staff meant being part of a community and family, one that not only helped improve each other’s skills and work, but also kept each of us focused and driven in our actions. This was a community that encouraged a God-centered outlook and motivation, equipping us to serve our guests with love, respect, and full effort. Through the community focus and an atmosphere full of encouragement, many members of the staff, myself included, felt a rise in motivation, and a refreshed, rejuvenated mindset to serve God in all of our work. Describing the rewards of our work goes far beyond our job bringing satisfaction. This was a job that brought fulfillment, motivation, and gratefulness for an incredible opportunity.
