Turning Strangers into Friends

We all came as strangers and left as brothers and sisters.

Camp Tzadi

I had an excellent time at camp. We did all sorts of activities such as volleyball tournaments, soccer tournaments, rock climbing, swimming, horseback riding, a huge capture the flag game, and many more activities. I loved the prayers each morning; I felt close and connected with God (and still do).

During the teachings I learned about the Natural versus the Supernatural. In other words, I learned about our Natural/human responses versus the Supernatural/godly responses. I felt encouraged and uplifted by the counselors and fellow campers, and that I was in a very safe bubble. Everybody was on the same page and could be trusted; we all came as strangers and left as brothers and sisters. I loved our counselors, the senior staff, and the camp “mom and dad.” They were all very attentive, and they were always there for us when we needed them most.

The one thing I loved most about camp was that everyone felt free to be himself or herself, and this made camp so much fun. I was able to see characteristics of people that I never saw before. When I got home I was still singing our camp songs and prayers. I was going on and on about the adventures and memories I made at camp; each story kept flowing out one after another, and they still are. I would highly recommend Camp Tzadi to everyone I know.

Holy Rebellion

I would argue that those who leave the faith whether temporarily or permanently perhaps aren’t as rebellious as you think. They aren’t the real rebels. You are.
