Camp, Community, and Leaders: A Model for Molding Leaders and Helping Communities within the Context of Camp

It’s another blisteringly hot day at Camp John Marc in Bosque County, Texas, and the van doors are slamming shut as twenty young men pile in for the short trip over to the little town of Morgan. In a few minutes, the young men will burst out of the vans at the small Baptist church in Morgan, equipped with games, toys, snacks, and crafts in hand. Kids from around the town will shortly begin appearing from nowhere, arriving by bike, on foot, and getting dropped off by parents. The only day camp that this town has ever seen is about to begin.
