Camp means something a little bit different to everyone. It’s a place to learn and grow, to meet your best friends, to learn about Jesus, and have a break from the “real world.” It’s a miracle in the mountains, your second home, your “bubble.”
There’s a facet of camp that speaks to all of us, but we bet if you distilled it down to its most basic form, you’d get somthing like community. Camp is community, a unified group of people brought together by Jesus, a desire to grow, and to experience the simple joy of being together.
You’d think that once that community physically breaks up and goes their separate ways, like we do at the end of the summer, that’s it, no more magic, no more bubble. But we’re here to suggest that actually, you can take that feeling with you back into the real world. Whether you’ve never missed a summer, or haven’t stepped through the gates in 30 years, the spirit of Greystone never leaves you, and the Greystone community doesn’t have to either!
Every month this year we’re going to be breaking down an aspect of the Greystone community, and giving you resources and tools to bring it back into your life. Coming off of our 100th summer, there’s no better time to dig deep into these friendships we’ve built and keep safely the memories of this place.
Current campers and staff, we’re talking to you first - we all want to keep in touch with the friends we made this year, but what does that actually look like? How do you make it last?
How do YOU keep in touch with your camp friends? Let us know in the comments, and check back in for more ways to keep that camp community strong!
