Summer camp is a place where you are safe, have fun, feel loved, AND... you get challenged! Sometimes it is the challenge of trying a brand new activity. Sometimes it is the challenge of choosing a joyful heart during a difficult situation. Sometimes it is the challenge of navigativing new relationships or learning to make independent choices without your parents being an arm's reach away.

Whatever the challenge, summer camp is full of them. And many of the challenges are very intentional. In his viral video, Coach Geno Auriemma discusses how the UConn basketball program values great attitude, good body language, upbeat enthusiasm, and how hard it can be to find people who practice those qualities.

At camp, we identify with Coach Geno, because we value the same thing on our team. Our staff at Pleasant Hill Outdoor Camp know that the MOST important things they bring to the table are enthusiastic attitudes and teachable hearts. As we place these college age men and women in cabins as role models and guides for your children, it is essential that they be upbeat, that they overflow with joy, and that they project love onto everyone around them.

In the hiring process, we say yes only to those who exhibit these values. Our week long traiing puts the staff through incredible difficulties - all to prepare every team member to demonstrate joy in the toughest moments.

When your child faces a challenge this summer, they will have a great example with them at all times who ALWAYS chooses to respond with joy. We pray that your child can experience the joy of Jesus this summer!

"She loved her counselors..."

"I just wanted to tell you how much our daughter enjoyed herself this summer at your camp. This was her, our, first experience and it couldn't have been better! She loved her counselors and the entire experience. When she first approached us about a summer camp, I was hesitant and overwhelmed. I searched for camps and yours stood out. You answered my questions and your staff helped me with payments; all of which was appreciated. When we arrived to drop her off, the check in procedure was helpful and easy. Everyone made us feel welcome. While she was there, we were able to catch up via the pictures your staff took which made us feel connected. When we picked her up she couldn't stop talking about how much fun she had. Thanks so much!"
