A Word from the Kids at UGM Camp

UGM Camp would not be possible without you. Camp is about half way over, and we thought you might enjoy reading about what some of the kids want to say to you who make camp possible.

"Thank you for letting us stay here. I loved the food, and I liked the water front, and I liked how we had a whole week to spend time with our best friends. I love it here and I don't want to leave, but I have to. And I love floating down the river. It was fun and scary at the same time, but we had a fun night. Thank you."

“What I loved about UGM Camp this week was meeting new people.”

“I liked that we got to go tubing yesterday, and I’m excited for the camp fire tonight. I just liked everything about this camp and all the camp leaders were so nice to us. I just wish I could stay one day longer. So, thank you for everything you did to make this camp happen.”

“Thank you for giving us a better understanding of God!!”

“What I loved about UGM Camp this week was the challenge courses. For me it was also fun being away from home for a week. I liked free time and the crafts, water front, canoeing, cabins, mealtimes, chapel, and just everything. It has been an amazing week here and I hope to come next year. I’ve had tons of fun!!!!”

“Thank you so much for putting this camp together. This has been the best week of my life having a glow stick dance party, going tubing, archery, and getting to sing every morning…I just want to say thank you for everything that happened, everything that happened was all my favorite.”

“I think I loved the 50ft. slippy slide because you got to be yourself and have no rules. Thank you.”
