“While we represent three different summer camps, each of us share the same desire to see all children, regardless of financial needs, attend camp. We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to benefit from an amazing, positive, loving, and life-changing Christian camping experience,” shares Jake Jacobs, Executive Director, Camp Henry.
Doug Vanderwell, Camp Roger’s Executive Director adds, “We’re all passionate about children growing in their self-esteem, confidence, and faith, and feel that there are few places that develop these character traits better than camp.”
“While we all offer excellent summer camp programs, we don’t see ourselves as competing with one another; we simply want all kids to experience the fun and benefits of camp,” shares Kevin VanderKlok, Executive Director, Camp Geneva.
