"I always knew that I wanted to work at a camp in the summer during my four years at JBU, but I had no idea who much it would change my life. I applied to work at Camp War Eagle my freshman year of college and worked the following summers. I worked at camp for 8 weeks that first summer and it was incredible. I made some of my best friends that summer & the following summers and learned how to love sacrificially. I learned how to embrace people without expectations and how to sit in satisfaction at the feet of Jesus instead of the approval of man. Camp War Eagle is still a part of my life today and I am so glad that the Lord had that for during my summers in college."
