We are sorry to see Craig go! 

Craig Thompson first came to Kidder Creek in the 6th grade and spent the next six summers coming to camp. Craig remembers his counselor, Jon Vengley, from that first summer and how he one day wanted to be just like Jon. Craig’s life was transformed that first summer when he put his faith in Jesus.

Craig realized his dream of being like his counselor Jon and came on summer staff for the first time in 2003. Craig has spent 10 summers serving the Lord at camp in various roles.

This will be Craig’s last summer as the Associate Director as he is going back to farming and  ministry full time at Rockside Ranch. Rockside is an organic working ranch just down the road that offers apprenticeships to young men overcoming adversity. We will miss Craig’s smile, his great storytelling and the hard work that he has given to this ministry. Thankfully he is not going far and he plans to to spend time volunteering at camp.

Thanks, Craig, for all  you have done and will do to pour into camp and create opportunities for campers to have incredible adventures, meet Jesus and have their lives transformed.
