Thinking about summer reminds me of long warm days, lots of sunshine, picnics, vacations, kids off from school, and much more. Here at Mount Hermon, summer means, “camp.” And camp means laughter, s’mores, campfires, passionate worship combined with inspired teaching, but most importantly relationships and lives transformed!
Each summer we see countless lives transformed through the loving touch of Jesus. Like many of you, we know the impact that Christian camping has in the lives of children, families, singles and couples—young and old. If you or someone you love has been touched by the hand of God during a visit to Mount Hermon, then you understand the legacy a camp experience can leave.
My daughter Kristin came home from camp with a new light, a better attitude towards others and about God. This year at Ponderosa Lodge was definitely the best year she’s had so far at Mount Hermon. Every year she works hard to raise most of the money she needs for camp and your campership fund helps make up the difference. She plans to come back every year and maybe even be a counselor, if that is God’s will. She always tells me how much the staff and counselors help her by just taking the time to really talk. Thank you guys! Not only has she made lifelong friends, but she has built up her life long relationship with the Lord.
This summer there are hundreds of people just like Kristin that you can help through a gift to our Campership Fund. Camperships are gifts of love that help those who otherwise would not be able to come. It’s folks like you that make the Campership fund a reality and with your help more of these kids will experience camp.
Our family would like to thank every one of you for putting on an EPIC camp this last summer. It was our first time attending a Mount Hermon Family Camp, and we could not have gone, had it not been for the generous donors who sacrificially give to make camperships available for families like ours.
We have always been a family who gives, so it was difficult to ask for a campership. Our son has been through numerous surgeries and medical procedures, which has taken a toll on him emotionally, physically, and spiritually. As parents, this has taken a toll on us as well. To be able to escape from all the doctor visits and tests to attend a family camp is just what the doctor ordered—the Great Physician that is!
Our time at Family Camp refreshed our souls, our minds and our hearts. Our family still has the Mount Hermon glow! We thank the Lord for your service, your commitment and vision to families like ours.

Summer is right around the corner and opening day for all our camps is rapidly approaching. Won’t you please open your heart and prayerfully consider a generous gift to our Campership Fund? With your help hundreds of people like Kristin and the Taylor family will receive a gift of love through a campership. No gift is too small and I believe the Lord will use them for real Kingdom impact! It would be an extra blessing to receive your gift by June 15, so you can impact as many folks as possible!
Thank You in advance for your prayerful consideration and help. We hope to see you soon here at Mount Hermon.
For King and Kingdom,
Director of Advancement
