What our campers say

“Camp is one of the most important places to me in the world, I wait all year to go. This year in particular I grew a lot as a person and Christian Scientist. From the inspiring Bible Lesson study I had every morning, I gained so much from my fellow campers and counselors.  I have become a better person and more devoted Christian Scientist.”

“I’ve found that I’m much better at making friends at CedarS because of the loving and comforting atmosphere CedarS provides, which gives me the courage to be myself. I’m grateful for the growth in Christian Science that I get to experience there as well. I don’t know many Christian Scientists where I live, so having an opportunity to go to camp every summer and be surrounded by so many people I can discuss and learn about Christian Science with is such a blessing. The experience at CedarS helped me feel closer to God than I ever have. It taught me how God’s love can provide you with all the strength you need to get through the obstacle’s life throws at you, and how sometimes all you have to do is be quiet and listen for God, and He will provide you with the answers you need. I am so thankful for all that CedarS provides to practice Christian Science and what is does for me.”

“My son had the fantastic opportunity of experiencing a huge and loving Christian Science community in action.  At our branch church, my son is the only kid in Sunday School.  What a difference then to come to CedarS.  To hear the hymns as a choir.  To talk, play, share with fellow young people learning their way in Christian Science.”
