Camper 2015 - Tahira

Overall, my experience at camp was more than I ever could have anticipated. The extent to which I experienced the love and mercy of God, and the love of others was unlike any before. I have received so much healing from the powerful and awe-striking experiences with Christ, which have eased my transition back home into my regular daily life. Although I'm not completely healed of all my past hurt, I have been able to remind myself of the presence of Christ I felt at camp, and know that he has never left my side. Camp has filled me with a new love for life and God, and has challenged me to look forward and work towards the beauty of a life lived completely for love of God...

The most influential part the camp for me was coming together with other Catholics, adult and youth alike, all on fire for their faith, through whom God was working so powerfully. Before attending the camp, I thought about the title, "Transform Your World." I thought that somehow through this camp, my eyes would be opened and the world around me would be transformed. I couldn't have been more wrong. Instead, the world inside of me was transformed. My heart was opened to God and his deep love and mercy in a new, pure way, which ignited me so that I could dive deeper into the arms of Christ, surrounding his heart, which is burning with love.
