The Gift of Camp

During Summer of 2017, over 1100 campers walked the trails of Asbury Hills, played in the creek and worshiped at the lake. Over 55 summer staffers spent their summer pouring into those campers and working to change their lives.  If you have ever attended a summer camp, you know the impact it can have on your life and salvation so you would agree when we say that camping changes lives.

How would you like to help change someone’s life?

The holiday season is just around the corner and so is the season of giving. Giving the gift of camp to someone is the best gift there is! We may be a little bias but who wouldn’t agree?! Thanks to your generosity over this year, we were able to award a scholarship to every camper in need.  That is incredible! Every single camper who wanted to attend Asbury Hills but was restricted financially was able to get that summer camp experience.  What an incredible gift those campers received!

Are you able to give a gift to change someone’s life?

In a few weeks we will celebrate Giving Tuesday. Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving the Tuesday after Thanksgiving; November 28th! Last year we participated and are ready to participate again.  Last year over $177 billion was raised from over 1.6 million donors in over 95 countries around the world.  That is INCREDIBLE! Who wouldn’t want to be a part of that?!

Your continued gifts will help provide assistance to campers in need and preserve our beautiful outdoor spaces. As you consider your gift, here are a few things to keep in mind:

Asbury Staff: From Logan

Camp people always say that working for a summer camp will change your life and if you ask Logan, he would agree with you! Logan started working at Asbury Hills in 2016 as a counselor. Keep reading to see how God used Asbury Hills to transform his life for the better!

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.” – 2 Corinthians 5:17

            After my first summer as a counselor at Asbury Hills I quickly realized that God transformed me. During that summer I watched more cases of transformation than I had ever seen before.

Now, after two whole summers at Asbury Hills it is apparent that Asbury Hills is a place of transformation.

In my case God used Asbury to completely change the trajectory of my life. Going into the summer I was enrolled at Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA and planning to study Sports Psychology. After finishing my first summer at Asbury and arriving at Liberty that quickly changed. God placed Camp Ministry on my heart after seeing the impact it has for His kingdom during the summer. Due to this passion and conviction that God placed in me I changed my major to Camp and Outdoor Adventure Leadership the Saturday before classes started.

God used Asbury Hills as a place of transformation in my life and continues to do so.

Being a counselor for two summers I have had the blessing of seeing countless transformations take place. Whether God allowed for me to be a part of them or not they were amazing to watch. To see Christian birth, growth and renewal on display is incredible. Watching as staffers share the love of Christ with camper after camper and sacrificing so much of their time, energy and love just so that a camper might be transformed.

God is constantly at work at Asbury Hills doing incredible things in countless lives.

Asbury Hills is simply a place of transformation. A place where you can come in broken and hurting and leave complete and thriving. No matter your past, no matter your present, no matter how unlovable and unfix-able you feel, God is at work, God is in control and at Asbury Hills you have brothers and sisters in Christ ready to help.

We serve a God of transformation and He has chosen Asbury Hills as a means for just that.
