Giving Thanks to Mom and Camp Timber-lee

February 22nd 2007

It’s been nearly three decades since I was a youth camper at Camp Timber-lee, but even after all these years, there’s not too many experiences I can’t recall from those summer days at the East Troy, Wisconsin Christian camp.

Just recently my wife and I were discussing summer Christian camp sign-up for our son, and fun memories flooded my head of meeting new friends, swimming at the lake, horseback riding on the trails, participating in morning Bible studies, singing as a group by the camp fires, and the incredible evening speakers.

It was just the experiences and influences I needed during that time in my life.

We didn’t have a lot of money growing up, and there weren’t too many things we were able to ask for and receive, but Mom some how always managed to scrape together the funds so me, my brother and sisters could each enjoy one week each summer at Camp Timber-lee and for that I’m grateful.

I realized this week that each year when our children ask if they can attend summer camp, my wife and I have never viewed it as an expense or hesitated to say “yes.” That’s because we know it’s an investment in our children’s lives just as my Mom knew all those years ago that Camp Timber-lee was a great investment for me, my brother and sisters.  As they say, “Mother’s know best.”
