Hi Knox Camps!
Rashan here! I am so excited to be back at Knox this summer as one of your Program Directors! I just finished up the first year of my Masters of Rehabilitation Therapy at Queen’s University and I am so happy that I get to come hang out at Knox during my summer break. I have been a part of the “summer camp world” for over 10 years in numerous capacities and I really do feel like camp is my second home.
When I was thinking about what I love about camp it was so hard to pick something that would fit in this short blog post. I think the reason I feel called to work at camp year after year is because of the unique way that camp is a place just for kids. We live in a world designed for adults and I love that here, children have the opportunity to learn and grow in an environment designed especially for them.
One of my favourite parts of camp is watching the relationships that develop between campers. I love watching an older camper help a younger camper tie their shoes or see campers cheering on their friends during a wide game. Camp allows children to come out of their shells and we always encourage them to be themselves.
This summer is going to be amazing and I am pumped for all the good things God has planned for the Knox community. Camp is all about showing kids God’s love and letting them know how valued and special they are in His eyes. I feel so blessed that I get to be apart of the amazing works that are taking place here and I am counting down the days until campers get here (19 days…if you were wondering).
