Testimonies at Christian Camps in PA

By Aaron E. Ziebarth
Executive Director

At the end of every session of summer camp, parents, siblings and grandparents join us for the closing program.  We sing songs, receive a challenge from the speaker, receive awards for the week, watch video highlights and then hear a testimony of how God worked.

Last Friday at Energizer 1 camp two campers shared in front of their peers and everyone else how God was at work in their lives.  THIS IS POWERFUL! Two statements stood out:

  1. I really grew a lot this week at camp!
  2. Joy El is the best camp ever!

(Bias warning – I’m the Executive Director :) ). I agree fully. Joy El is an awesome camp. But it is awesome because God makes it that way.  He is the one who is at work changing lives. “And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord's glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.”  (2 Corinthians 3:18).

If you would like to attend a closing program, please let me know [email protected]. If you haven’t yet registered your children for an amazing experience of Day Camp or Sleep Away camp or Adventure Camp – I urge you to do so right away, registration info.  Some sessions are WAIT LIST ONLY.
