I was first a volunteer and then had the utmost privilege of joining the staff family at Camp Blessing. The very grounds of this place are inhabited by the Holy Spirit--it is a place of full acceptance of the perfection God has placed in His precious children. Staff members and volunteers come with ready hearts to serve and love and in return realize that the amount of beauty and joy that has been lavished on them by campers was beyond their wildest thought. The directors purely aim to please their Creator and find that the celebration of special campers and seeing the worship that these campers offer is a subtle glimpse of the heavenly Kingdom we will one day delight in together.

This camp has been a huge blessing to our family and many others. My wife and I volunteered here for the past four summers. The founders have huge hearts for serving children with special needs and showing them the love God has for them as well as His truths. The staff and volunteers experience growth in their own spiritual walk by laying down and serving. We call it "being the hands and feet of Christ" I have 5 children, two having special needs.
