Here are some excerpts from letters written by a few of the grandparents who attended the MK GrandCamp this summer:
A report from Executive Director, Cavin Harper
It is likely we could not have scripted this summer’s Military GrandCamp pilot any better than it happened. The Lord really used this week to begin some healing in the campers, and an keen awareness for us of how great is the need among our military families.
Truly, as Buck has said, this was one of the highlights of our lives!! Invitations were sent out in June (after getting go-ahead from all parents) to our six older grandchildren, ages 8 ½ to nearly 15, from three different states. Our version of GrandCamp was held in our own home here in Colorado.
“Grandma Elise, I want to go to that camp with you!” I was surprised and thrilled to hear his announcement. I had told my grandson, Jake, about Grand Camp when I was in Omaha in March for his birthday. Grand Camp had sounded so great and I had only hoped against hope of ever going. There were so many obstacles.
