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. "

- Keanu Elliott

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.
