My experience here at Grace these past 15 months has been incredible. I was able to gain a complete understanding of what camping looks like throughout the year. Most importantly, however, Grace helped me grow in Christ-like character so that I could become a more effective servant leader.

With my interest in camp ministry the PACE program helped me see/experience many different things that I never would have seen or experienced being a camper or a volunteer. It helped me in my choice to pursue a degree in the camping profession.

My Internship experience was an intensive, hands on learning opportunity. I was able to work alongside professionals until I was able to get the job done by myself which encouraged me to be self motivated. It was hard work, in-depth and I learned more than in any of my other classes.
