Why I Love to Come to Camp Agape


We had the privilege of interviewing B, an 11 year old girl who has come to Camp Agape since it started in 2006.

Camp Agape Volunteer: Why do you keep coming back?

B: It’s really fun to meet people. It’s nice up there. I’ve missed people.

CAV: Anything especially nice?

B: Everyone there, the cabins, the lake, the food, the campfires and ‘smores.

CAV: What would you say to someone who’s thinking about going to CA?

B: The first year I was nervous but when I got there, there was so much to do, so much fun, a chance to meet people. At the end I was really teary – I didn’t want to leave.

CAV: Any important memory?

B: Talking with ‘Big E;’ [a counselor] he’s a very good person.

CAV: Anything special you’ve learned at Camp Agape?

B: There’s always someone there at camp loving you.

CAV: B, it sounds to me that you like people and you like being at Camp Agape because you are free to enjoy yourself.

B: Yes, that’s it.
