Geared toward students who will be 9th thru 10th graders, this camp is a great place for campers to come, have fun and feel comfortable about who they are. New campers quickly fit in and feel like they have been coming to camp for years. This is a week packed with exciting activities and meaningful interactions with peers and adult leaders. Through relationships, shared experiences, and hearing Biblical Truths, campers walk away from this week feeling refreshed and knowing the love that God has for them.
I have been involved with Higher Ground at Lake Louise since 1997. I started working in a camp setting as a cabin leader way back in 1984 as a teenager at a Baptist church camp in northern Indiana. I have been to a total of 31 weeks of camp, seven of those weeks serving as a Program Director. I have a true passion for camp. I want the young adults to have a fun-filled, energy-packed week at camp, but most importantly I want them to make a true connection with God. Professionally, I was involved in education for 28 years as a teacher, coach, and administrator and have plans to retire at the end of this year.
