A Summer of Transformation
This summer, Black Diamond Camp hosted 739 Day Campers. Not only did these kids participate in activities like ziplining, swimming, climbing walls, and archery tag, they also experienced God’s Creation and life-changing messages from God’s Word.
Each day, kids arrived with their own joys and excitement and their own set of worries and fears. One of those campers was Conner. Conner was at Camp most of the summer and usually had a go-with-the-flow attitude, but something was just off one particular week. He screamed at people, ran away, was uninvolved in activities, and just wasn’t happy.
Drew, a Black Diamond counselor, took some time to sit down with Conner and listen. “Connor shared with me that he does not get heard at home and was happy that I took the time to listen to what he had to say,” Drew explained. “From there, he was back to being the happy Conner that everyone knew. It was cool seeing the transformation from an angry little dude to a happy, content, little person – all because of a simple act of just listening.”
This summer was full of transformations big and small at Black Diamond Camp. Over 40 campers came to know Christ, and over 13 baptisms were performed. Thank you for being a part of the life-changing work at Black Diamond Camp and Warm Beach Camp Ministries.
