Kanakuk Kamps - Counselor

As an eight year-old, I attended my first summer at a Kanakuk camp. I immediately knew that there was something special about that place and the people there, especially the counselors. It became a summer tradition to head out to the rolling hills of southwest Missouri and enjoy a two-week stay at camp on Table Rock lake each year. 

In the summer of 2016, I was able to return once again, but this time as a counselor. During my six-weeks there, I was afforded the opportunity to work with two cabins of God loving high school men. Those kids taught me how much things have changed since I was in high school, and I did my best as a mentor to provide them guidance through those difficult times. We were also able to play golf and enhance their skills there. Over the course of a two-week period, our team of golf counselors was able to offer over three strokes of improvement on average for each camper.
