Glen Lake Camp Stories
Going to Glen Lake Camp was a beautiful experience. It was so fun to just have a full week of fun and be surrounded by other Christian teenagers. One of the pastors said that Glen Lake had the thinnest veil to God; it was one of the places you could be closest to Him, and he was right! I don't have a favorite activity; they all were! I really got out of my comfort zone and just had fun. I can't wait to go again!
Camp was awesome. Probably, my most favorite thing was the hike to the cross. When we do the hike, we go through the woods, across the river, and to the top of the cliff. Then, you feel like you're on top of the world. You can see all of the camp.
I loved camp. It was super fun. I was also happy that Zack came. He is my best friend. The best thing that I probably did was archery or swimming in the lake. I also liked cooking class. I liked making new friends. I also really liked playing on the Rock-It in the lake, even when I got shoved off or had my hands stepped on. It was so awesome!
To honor and protect God’s children in our trusting care, Nolanville FUMC is a Ministry Safe congregation.
