‘The Rubber Band Slingshot Summer’ – Hot Off the Press

If you have ever been to summer camp, I guarantee you will enjoy the Rubber Band’s newest adventure. I couldn’t resist writing this light-hearted, fun-filled, nonstop adventure for the band (but not without its serious message that I am hoping will encourage strength in my readers).

One week at Bible camp was always the highlight of my summer, giving me something to look forward to.

I’m on the far right, in the smiley-face t-shirt.

The week always ended too soon for me. Fresh out of high school, I flew to Southern California and worked as a counselor for inner-city kids at a Salvation Army camp in Malibu.

Me with campers, circa 1987.

It was so much fun that I worked three more summers at various camps on the East Coast and then two more back in Malibu. It was inevitable I would write about the experiences.

Although this is a fictional story, some of it is based on reality. Bearskin Meadow Diabetes Camp does exist and some of the names I used are real people who have given me permission to honor them and what they do. Becca’s exaggerated outdoor adventure camp is, however, purely non-existent and based only on my imagination.

I have many fun and crazy stories of my camp experiences, and I’d love to hear your stories of summer camp.

    My favorite Bible camp memory was at Strawberry Lake in Minnesota. Our daddy would take us there every summer. I was pretty young but I do remember staying in a cabin and then going to camp meeting services at night where everyone would sing, praise the Lord and hear a sermon. Many would get saved! The pastor was Gerald Derstine. I know that is where our daddy grew even more in the Lord and became even more evangelistic. I haven’t been to a Bible camp in years, but one day I want to find a place where I can volunteer and watch young hearts follow the Lord.
