The last Thursday of a session is one of my favorite days. Don’t get me wrong! It’s not because the campers are about to leave; it’s the incredible amount of energy contained in the last full day. The campers can barely contain all the excitement! They’re trying to pack in as much fun as possible before Mom and Dad come and take them home. The ...

So often we hear the term “surrounded” used negatively—surrounded by enemies, surrounded by darkness, surrounded by fears. At camp we are surrounded, but it is fun that wraps us and it is love that covers us. Days surrounded by adventure call us out of slumber. Nights surrounded by brothers call us into family. It is in those surroundings that w...

Tuesday is for Tribal Activities!

Tuesday, June 9th 2015


By Tuesday, campers are feeling more at-home as they settle-in to the camp routine. They’re beginning to master the daily schedule and owning their cabin as their home for the session, their place of rest and retreat.

Summer Has Begun!

Monday, June 8th 2015


Hello Friends and Families of Rockmont! Today was a great second day of camp!

More Thankful Than Ever

Friday, February 6th 2015


What a wonder it is to wake up in the morning! Normally I would have added “and count your many blessings” to the end of that sentence. It is a good addition since we all have much to be grateful for at the start of each day, especially at the start of a new year. But the truth is, waking up is quite a blessing in and of itself. Each morning ha...

Grateful Days

Thursday, August 7th 2014


It’s funny how days and weeks can seem to have a personality of their own. Most often unspoken, moods and emotions spread and embrace us. It’s a good reminder that we’re not alone. There is a palpable sense of gratitude at camp right now. The summer, this session, was very good…special. Regardless of what people are talking about, that sentiment...

The Ministry is in the Interruptions

Wednesday, August 6th 2014


One of the most significant parts of our mission is to help campers more clearly see the biblical story. That it is OUR story! For that reason, we book-end our day with a time of devotion. Each Tribal Director begins the day by sharing a story from God’s Word during Morning Watch. And then later at night, the counselor leads a cabin devotion for...
