Camp and Our Community

 

pabloWe love being a local camp. There are so many ways that we can engage with our community, and we look forward to growing that relationship. It is wonderful to go out in town and run into our campers and their families. We love the fact that we are able to watch kids grow into passionate followers of God and leaders over the years at camp. Our summer camps are powered by campers turned high school staff turned summer staffers. As we look to grow our connections with those in our community, there are a few events that we are adding to our calendar. Our first was Family Camp Day, an event that provided families to experience camp together.

Family Camp Day started at ten and was open for people to come and go as they pleased. There was a warm fire and a greeter at the pavilion to start everyone’s visit off right. On this mild autumn day people could go boating in the swamp where both turtle catching and frog spotting could take place. We were thrilled to figure out a way to bring archery to one of our community events for the first time. Over the summer archery is always a fantastic activity with amazing photos. It was great to allow parents to be able to partake in the event and give campers the opportunity to try their hand at it again. We were also able to open the climbing wall and zipline during different parts of the day. It was a joy having people overcome their fears and step off the zipline tower to glide through the trees with smiles plastered on their faces. Our kitchen was busy feeding our visitors with inexpensive but deliciously filling lunches. Lawn games were scattered around camp, and we had some fun with tournaments and prizes during the day. At three everyone started filtering out, and we wrapped up the day praising God for the success that we had with this event.

It was amazing to see how well this event went—104 attendees! We hope and pray this event is just a small taste of what our community relationship can be in the future. It is a joy to share camp with others, and see people make family memories. We are looking forward to making this day an annual event. If you missed Family Camp Day keep an eye on our social media accounts and here on our website where we will announce others as they get closer.

 

Our next community even will be the Women’s Christmas Tea on December 9th! Registration is open now. Come join us for a time of fellowship and celebration of the Wonder of God. For more details, go here.

 

Meet Our Mighty Intern

nathan-blog-pic I am so excited to introduce myself as LWBC’s newest member of year-round staff. My name is Nathan Lawlor, and I am the mighty intern. My first summer at Lake Waubesa Bible Camp was way back in 2010, when I was in middle school. That week changed my life forever. I received a burning passion and love for LWBC and for what the Lord was and is doing here. After that first year I couldn’t help but come back again, and again, and again. I would say that I became quite obsessed with this wonderful camp. I went through a few years of being a camper, a few years of being a high school staffer, and in the summers of 2015 and 2017, I was a part of summer staff as a counselor.

Now I’m in a much different stage of my life, trying to figure out my future and all (which is very scary to me). Just this past summer I had no idea where I was going to be living or what I was going to be doing. Wow did the Lord come through for me. It was the last week of summer, and I had no plans figured out for the next year of my life, when I got offered an internship to work at LWBC year-round. I could not contain my excitement, YES YES YES!!!! This was definitely God’s plan for me.

So here I am now working as everyone’s favorite intern at the best place in the world. I get to interact with and work with the coolest people on the planet, and I also get to do things for the kingdom of God every single day. Life couldn’t be better. I am so thankful and blessed for the opportunities I’ve been given, and I thank everyone who has helped me on the way. I’m so excited to grow as a young man of God throughout this internship, and I can’t wait to see what doors this opens for me in the future.
