Hello Friends and Family of Rockmont! What another great day here at Rockmont! Although we had a little rain today, it didn’t slow down any of our activities as we had another full day.

“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free.” Galatians 5:1. What does it mean for a camper to grow while he is at camp? For that matter, what does it mean for any of us to grow?
