Twenty-one youth from three counties have been selected to participate in an exciting, fun-filled week of summer camp with Operation UNITE.
The youth, along with five adults are spending June 20-25 at Jonathan Creek Camp on the shores of Kentucky Lake. The camp is operated by Crossings Ministries.
Attending from Clay County are Mariah Brown, Oliver Clavano, Whitney Couch, Hanna Fultz, Jason Fultz, Nathan Henson, Tony Hinkle, Ashley McCulley, Bobby Shoupe, Matthew Smith, John Stevens, Austin Vaughn and Danielle Walters.
Attending from Jackson County are Becky Engell, Benjamin Engell, Nathananel Engell, Josh Maupin, Brittany Moore and Tiffany Saunders.
Attending from Johnson County are Cody Goble and Dustin Wilks.
This is the second year the UNITE Foundation has been able to offer the program, which includes crazy morning celebrations, small-group discussions, and fun activities such as tower climbing, tubing and messy games.
“Last year’s camp was simply amazing,” said UNITE Director Karen Engle. “The team-building and recreational activities that occur throughout the week are exceptional. You don’t want to leave.”
A diverse array of activities are available for campers to select from. These include a climbing wall, Super Blobs on the lake, a challenge course, mountain biking and swimming.
“The stories and memories we heard from last year’s campers were touching,” Engle said. “We are pleased to be able to offer this life-changing experience to so many young adults again this summer.”
