Waterfront Fun

If you follow us on Facebook or Instagram, you know we’ve been making lots of announcements about all the great things we have planned for summer 2019! We are blessed to share that our waterfront is getting some new toys that will bring joy to all our summer visitors! Our campers will have a splashing good time on our new raft, water slide and water trampoline!
The gift of the water trampoline is a great testimony to the power of camp. You probably know that Judson Collins Director Trish Farrell and her Greg brought their family here to southeast Michigan last year answering God’s call to grow the camping ministry at Judson Collins Center.
Greg used to be director of a camp in Massachusetts. It was a small, sweet camp that became like family. We continued to mentor college staff and maintained relationships even after God called us to the next camp. When it was announced last year that the Massachusetts camp was closing, they asked if Judson Collins Center wanted to buy their water trampoline. It was not in the budget so the answer was “no thank you.”
They called a couple of months later and said that because of “Greg and Trish’s deep call to camping ministry,” their board would like to donate it to Judson Collins! Yet funds to ship it were not available. They called back a week later and said some board members would personally drive it out to Michigan! Their generosity and open hearts blow us away. Camping ministry changes lives, even the lives of directors and board members. This summer, campers at Judson Collins will be blessed as this gift becomes the highlight of our waterfront on Wamplers Lake.
Like the camper family who sent us soccer balls last Christmas in honor of their soccer-playing, camp-loving daughter, you can bless the camp with a gift that will help grow the ministry here. See our Amazon wish list.
At the end of the summer, you’ll be so glad you spent part of it at Judson Collins, growing in God’s grace and following the path that leads to love, friendship and service through Jesus Christ.
