From A Parent

“From A Parent” is a series we have created where past families share their camp experiences at Covenant Harbor.

Why did you choose to send your child to Covenant Harbor?From a Parent - Ellen and Terenee

“From the time we registered, we felt very informed about all the important info and all our questions were easily answered. The Covenant Harbor staff was very welcoming and extremely helpful. It was my daughter’s first time at an overnight camp, and I was also a little bit nervous. As I arrived on the Covenant Harbor grounds, all those nerves seemed to fade away. There was no negative energy at all!”

What are some highlights/stories from your experience as a camper parent or your child’s experience as a camper?

“The Covenant Harbor staff were all awesome, friendly, energetic, loving, welcoming – and very excited to see all the campers and their families (new and old) arrive at camp. I was so excited for my daughter to experience this blessing that was bestowed upon us!

Everything was well organized, and I was so amazed at how smooth the check-in and check-out went. All the activities were structured and included sessions of spending time in praise and worship, fun activities, and sharing of God’s love and His word. My daughter said, ‘The best thing about this camp was me growing and coming home knowing more about God than I did before I arrived at Covenant Harbor – I went home a changed person because I know God is limitless in my life and God is with me wherever I go!’

I also loved that there were so many photos online! There were happy, smiley faces in every photo I saw each day. Since parents got to follow each activity on the website, it was like I was there on the camp grounds, too!”

Why do you want to continue sending your child to Covenant Harbor?

“My daughter said right away that she wasn’t ready to leave when I arrived to take her home, and she wants to come back next year! Thank you so much for the scholarship – without it, it would have been impossible for my Terenee to have attended Covenant Harbor. I would highly recommend this camp to everyone I can. May you all continue to be blessed and to be a blessing to others – because you all were a true blessing to my family and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts!”
