Older Elementary Ultimate Extreme Camp Director

My name is Courtney Boedeker, and this is my third year directing the Older Elementary Ultimate Extreme Camp. I am from Pleasant Hill, Missouri, and attend Grace United Methodist Church in Lee’s Summit. Growing up, I was always very active in my church’s youth group. I attended church camp for several years, mainly during high school. Before I became a director, I was a counselor for two years. I loved the experiences that I had at camp, so I decided I wanted to become a director to give other kids those same experiences. Being a camp director has allowed me to play a role in helping kids grow closer to God and strengthen their walk with Him. I am looking forward to another great week at camp this summer!

Sanctuary Kamp

The number one question we received at camp was “What about this Bible?”  We gave away over 20 Bibles at camp.  We had on little girl who came, and her friend’s mom came and talked to me.  She said that her daughter was embarrassed because she had to borrow her grandmother’s bible for camp, and it was awful because it had all these old words in it.  Not only did we give her a Bible, but we gave her little brother a Bible as well.  And I just loved it because they had been coming to Upward Basketball but had never come to church.  It wasn’t until after camp that they felt confident in doing that.

Why do I return to Kamp? "It's more for the love of others. It's easy to go somewhere just because you can but you won't really achieve or learn anything by doing so. To go somewhere you love and are loved by those who understand you and can relate, that's a treasure. By going to a place like that you learn from others and , in turn, they learn from you. "
