The Faces of the 2016 Summer

Who are the Camp Wyoming Summer Staff? This year they came from as far away as South Africa and as close as Maquoketa, Iowa. They are elementary education majors, Bible college students, and outdoor ministry graduates. Most importantly, they are young adults who committed to spending their summer working in camp ministry- teaching kayaking, leading songs, crawling through caves, and studying Scripture. It takes a very special person to work on a camp staff. Here at Camp Wyoming, God sent us an abundance of very special people who worked incredibly hard to make this summer fantastic. Please keep them in your prayers as they begin the next adventure in their lives!
