Why I'm Excited to Work at HoneyRock: HoneyRock was such a place of rich spirituality and healing in my time working on activity staff last year. As the waterski instructor in 2022, my favorite aspect of the job was interacting with campers and having conversations about the ways they felt Christ day-to-day. I cherished my time with them, whether it was teaching on the boat, sitting around fires as a cabin aunt, or signing together in times of worship. I am so excited to step into this season of community and guidance with our Advance campers as a cabin leader this summer. The love of Jesus is so incredibly evident within this place; I pray that I can display a measure of His character with each wonderful soul here.
