Windy Gap: A Young Life Camp

October 17, 2016

{my squirrlie girlie, Lily|
    Something I've never talked about on my blog before is that I consider myself a Christian. I don't worship God in the traditional sense as far as going to church on Sundays, but one way I do pray is through Young Life. If you don't know what Young Life is, it's a Christian organization that has branches in a number of areas for middle school, high school, and college. We meet once a week as a group to jam, play games, and talk about Jesus; and then we meet again in groups of all boys or all girls to further connect with Jesus and each other. I've been a part of the group for about a year now and I absolutely love it.
     This weekend was my first time attending Young Life camp. The camp we went to is called Windy Gap, and it's located in Weaverville, NC. The weather was gorgeous the entire time we were there, it was so refreshing to exist in the mountains with so many people and no internet or phones. I spent most of my free time taking pictures, some of which you will see below, but most of the time at camp was spent in group activities. We ate together, sang together, danced, together, prayed together, laughed together, and cried together. Our group of Chapel Hill girls grew so close in just 2 days. This weekend I bonded with girls and guys that I'd never met before, but I also learned a lot about myself and Jesus and how to live in faith better. I had one of the best times of my life, so I really wanted to share with you all! Thanks for reading. Stay tuned, xoxo Lauren.

  1. Ugh! I love this! In high school, I wanted nothing to with YoungLife. However, in college, the ministry stole my heart! One thing I wish I got to experience is going to camp as a student. I'm so glad that that you got to experience YoungLife camp, and that YonungLife has had a positive impact in your life!
    Much love from a current YoungLife Leader!
