At just eleven years old, Isaiah Frei is very clear on why camp is important in his life, "I just fell in love with camp and with my friends and counselors there. We got really close, especially during the devos at night. The friends I make at camp are different because we have more serious conversations, plus we have a lot of fun together. It’s just makes me happy."
Isaiah has been a camper for two summers and plans to keep coming back to Wapo for a long time to come. During his first summer at Wapo, "I had two counselors that really drilled into us that the last things we should hear every night is the word of God. Every night after lights out they would read a couple of chapters from the Bible. When I went home, I wanted to continue this. Throughout the next year, I read 3-8 chapters of the Bible every night before bed. I finished the whole Bible. Some of it was hard to understand but I really like the parts that talk about love. 1 Corinthians 13 also talks about what love isn't. That helps me a lot too."
Isaiah also remembers the dining experiences at camp. "Yeah, it was really crazy. We had to wait a long time for our turn, then eat fast. We always sit with our cabin group. If we had more time, we'd definitely be able to have better conversations and connect more."
Isaiah has been a camper for two years at Wapo and can't wait to get back again and again!
