I was first drawn to the camp after our daughter's initial camp where she had an amazing time. Now, I've become involved with the Camp's Site Council, the Great Plains Camp Board and various Fontanelle functions & activities. It is incredible to see the positive impact on youth (& adults) at the camp. The stories that the Staff have shared have literally made me cry. I can think of NO better way to help prepare our kids for their adult life and adult church life than camp!

I just want to say "thank you" for the amazing camp experience that you gave my daughter this past week. She has been going to church and Sunday School every Sunday since she was a baby, and she knows all the Bible stories inside out, etc. She's an all-around good kid. But I gave you a spiritual child and you returned to me a spiritual young adult. The depth of the conversations that we had on the way home from camp and then in the car on the way over to my Mom's to pick up her sisters took me … read more

E.Y. Harburg says, "Words make you think Music makes you feel. A song makes you feel a thought." My faith was honestly created, tested, and strengthened on the logs around a campfire. I was raised by two parents who loved Jesus, us kids, and Husker football more than anything else. In our small town church there was a pew that didn't have a sign on it, but everyone knew it was for the Boroviak family. Every Sunday my parents made sure all of us were in that pew whether we liked it or not. … read more

I think it's really important that the counselors of "Man Camp" know the impact they made in my son's life that week. I'm always a firm believer that if you have changed one life, it was worth it. I hope they believe it, too.The life they changed means the world to me. Here's a recap of the conversation we had after camp on the drive home.
After my son showed me all the things he had done at camp, we headed back to the car and he reached for my hand and said, "I've changed." "I won't ever … read more

As a pastor, camp dean, and parent of a camper, I see regularly how camp experiences light up peoples' faith lives. Distracted and disconnected youth experience grace in camp's intentional Christian community. Rambunctious pre-schoolers get excited about God's creation and sharing it with friends and family. And young adults recognize God's callings in their lives. God lights up people of all ages through camp in ways that I wish I could replicate with as much success in the local church.

The kids always have a wonderful time at Fontanelle, and are eagerly awaiting next year. However, I especially want to commend you all on the Boys Only camp; despite the fact that I cried most of the way home because I was leaving my child all by himself at camp for the first time (I know, completely ridiculous), I knew that he would be safe and have a wonderful time. He was SO excited about the week when I picked him up, especially about the devotions that they had done with each of their … read more
