My granddaughter attended camp in 2009 and was blown away by it. Time constraints prevented her going in 2010 but she hopes to attend this year. She came to camp a stranger and left with new friendships, knowledge of Christ and full of joy. The learning programs and the play times are a perfect balance.
The councilors are just the best there is. You know just by talking to them that they are filled with the Spirit. But not just that, they are able to bring it to the campers in a way that leads them to have that same Spirit for themselves.
Review from Guidestar
My favorite time of the year, 2000 strong camp! Every time I go there I get even closer and closer to Jesus Christ, and to this day I wouldn't miss this camp for the world. The camp helps me become a closer person to god and teaches me more about the Book of Mormon.
A long time ago two very close church friends to my sister and I, named Brennen and Sydney moved away to Kentucky, and we miss them alot during the year. But each year at 2000 strong camp, they come and we spend 5 amazing days with them! I have a blast every year spending all my time learning and knowing that I am doing this for the love of my god. I struggle alot during the school years and I took it hard when I started to get Hormones. Oh Joy! I felt guilty and that every step i took would be a mistake to god. The camp helps me stay who I am and save me in my time of need. Without the camp, I think I would be a very depressed girl lost in the clutches of the cruel world we live in.
There is hope in my heart, and I know that the camp will never die away, no matter what the devil does. 2000 strong camp is extremley special to me, and i wouldn't have it any other way. Keep on the straight and narrow path! 2000 strong camp 2011, here I come!
My personal experience with 2000 strong camp has been one of the highlights in my life time. It has truely has changed the way i look at the Book of Mormon now. I used be be so narrow minded about the Book of Mormon but after this camp, it has changed me to be more open minded about things. Now I am on the straight and narrow path and it feels great!
One of my favorite things about this camp is the people. I absoultly love the people that work there at the camp even though almost half of the people that work there are my family. I grew up with most of the staff that works there so I am super close to everyone there. Another thing I love is the campers. Especially the younger ones, they crack me up! I pretty much love everyone that goes to this camp. They all have a special place in my heart.
Also i love the lessons and testemonies everyone gives at the end of camp. At that time I feel soo close to these people. Its like we are all one big happy family. I would never ever miss this camp for the world.
