Camp Barnabas has changed my outlook and perspective on so many things, it's crazy. For starters, I have learned to put my everything into our One and Only God. I've learned that lesson from so many people: Barnstormers, missionaries, Staff, and most importantly, campers. Every single one of those people have shown me how to believe and trust God in everything I do.
Second, I have made some amazing friends at camp: campers, missionaries, there are so many people I am friends with now because they love Barnabas and God just as much as I do. Those friends have made me realize that it doesn't matter how far away you are, you can still be best friends. I have also met one of my all time favorite people and friends at camp. She is a camper named Haley. She has shown me that it doesn't matter how old you are or what people think of you. The only thing that matters is that you live a happy life with endless joy. That is exactly what Haley does and it inspires me everyday.
Finally, Camp Barnabas has shown me what it means to have a servants heart. Everyday, I think of Camp and all of the many people it has impacted, including myself. I have seen & met so many people who have an overwhelming amount of pure joy and love in their hearts. Those people and moments inspire me to do better in all aspects of my life.
Camp Barnabas is just an all around amazing place.
