Years at HAC: Many summers between 1994 and 2009
Favourite camp food: Three-way tie between campout cookies, McDonalds In A Blender, and hamburgers with a side of carrots-and-celery-in-a-cup-of-juice (when you know, you know)
Favourite Camp Song: No such thing as a bad camp song, really
Favourite memory/what camp means to me/how HAC still influences my life: There are so many memories that live as little snapshots in my mind: staying up too late with friends on nights off, driving around on the Steiner, pondings, epic campouts...the biggest standout, though, is the incredible feeling of being part of children's faith journeys and experiencing God's creation with some of the best people I've ever known, many of whom are still important friends in my life now decades later. Spending early mornings wrapped in blankets on a picnic table with my journal working through the hard questions in a way that life never quite made space for again, and learning to listen for His call to me, which was always clearest in that place. It's a privilege to be part of this committee, and I look forward to building opportunities for those of us whose lives have been impacted by Hidden Acres to keep connecting and growing here.
