Why Kamp is More Important Than Ever...

Hey K2 Kanakuk Friends,
I know that some of you are shrugging your shoulders because, of course, I think that Kamp is so important...I work here, we love this place. But really I think even if I didn't do this, work here, that I would still be saying why?

My husband just texted me this morning that K2's enrollment is looking pretty good. It was fun and exciting to think about all those little beds being filled with hearts that just need a refuge. Teen culture is saturated, so so so saturated, with pressure, social media, school, and just life. To come to a place that, most of the time at first begrudgingly to the teenager, takes phones, iPods, iPads and all the technology that is consuming them. It's breeding this shallow culture that doesn't know how to say HELLO when introduced or if they do that that's about as far as they know to go. Kids need Kamp. For adventure, for social interaction, for the love of Jesus, for, yes, even the trial of making new friends or being new to something...Kids need Kamp.

As I type this my heart is totally torn because I am already that momma that is dreading the day when my littles aren't so little and kamp is reality...I pray I come back and read this...whenever that age is (this post is mostly directed towards junior high and high school aged kiddos).

Remember most of you will not go to the NBA, WNBA, NFL, or any other professional athletic why 5 basketball camps, why 3 soccer intensives...why? Build into the character of who you are...the woman you desire to be in the blink of LIFE we have here....You need Kamp!

Be awesome & Love Jesus,

kanakuk ashley robbins
