Letter from the Director:
When I was asked, several years ago, to organize and direct a Bible Study Camp for girls, I heartily answered, “yes” before taking into consideration that I had no idea what to do first, or next, for that matter. I had seen, firsthand, the benefits that boys in the Northeast were getting from an all-boys Bible Study camp, and thought it would be wonderful for the same opportunity to be available for girls.
Little did I know what a difference and blessing this camp would bring to my life. Each year, as the week really gets going, I marvel at how amazing the atmosphere is. I see girls totally engaged in classes for several hours a day. I see girls heartily and happily serving each other and taking care of menial tasks with no complaining. I see girls sitting at the feet of older women, soaking up every word. I see lots and lots of hugging, laughing, singing, and “Love Note” writing. The momentum keeps building and just can’t be stopped. And I marvel.
Then I marvel at myself for being surprised. When Christians come together with full intent to take a break from worldly pursuits and spend time in study, prayer and fellowship – what else should I expect? I only wish that everyone could experience a little bit of the wonder.
I would love for you to send your daughters, or recommend the camp, or support us with donations. I welcome your conversation, questions and feedback about FAR camp.
My husband, Don and I have lived in New York City to work for the past 14 years. We have 3 grown-up sons, 2 amazing daughters-in-law, and the five cutest grandchildren on the planet. Don works as a full-time Bible Teacher. I help him as best I can, and I work part time for Weight Watchers.
