One summer, more than half the camp was sitting down listening to Uncle Horace answer questions about God during free time. It started off with one boys cabin, and grew from there!

Daniel Lowrie, Summer Ministries Director

Camp name: Femur

 

Years with WSC?
Coming up on summer #14!

Favourite Camp Memory?
 I remember one night in particular when I was a counselor in Eagles Cabin. I was sitting in a chair between a few bunks, surrounded by campers. There was a real hunger for God and the campers were asking some really great questions about Him. "Calvin" and I answered them as best we could and had an amazing discussion with the campers.  I will always remember that night.

Favourite Bible Passage?
Colossians 1:24-29: "Now I rejoice in what was suffered for you, and I fill up in my flesh what is still lacking in regard to Christ's afflictions, for the sake of His body, which is the church. I have become its servant by the commission God gave me to present to you the word of God in its fullness - the mystery that has been kept hidden for ages and generations but is now disclosed to the saints. To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. We proclaim Him, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone perfect in Christ. To this end I labor, struggling with all this energy, which so powerfully works in me."

What is the furthest you have ever traveled from home?
I had the opportunity to travel to Vladivostok, Russia for a missions trip in 2004.  It is basically the opposite side of the world!

Where have you always wanted to travel?
Scotland!  I hear it is very lovely this time of year. 


Lydia Marr, Program Administrator 

Camp name: Pascal

 

Years with WSC?
This will be my 7th summer! 

Favourite Camp Memory?
Oh man! Before I became Program Administrator I was the head cook. I loved singing in the dish room, baking hundreds of cookies and being elbow deep in mac and cheese some days! But at the end of the day, there is nothing I love more than standing around the campfire with all the campers and my fellow staff members while we laugh at skits, sing songs, and listen to staff members share their testimonies. 

Favourite Bible Passage?
"Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil, cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in love. Honour one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality." -Romans 12: 9-13

What is the furthest you have ever traveled from home?
Scotland! My dad was born and raised there so it is always a hoot going back and visiting family and seeing where he grew up!

Where have you always wanted to travel?
I am actually a home body! My favourite place in the entire world is camp, so I am always happy spending my summers here!
