Laura VanBiber, Taylor Foreman, Christina Purvis and Rebecca Paris served as female counselors. Chris Gussman, Jeff Williams, Austin Purvis, and Dan Keleher served as male counselors. Don Kite provided the spiritual guidance as the camp Patriarch. Linda Gussman and Pam Foreman provided the wonderful food for the camp with Stephanie Turner covering any of the medical needs as Camp Nurse. Having spoken to many of the campers and staff that participated, it is reported that a lot of fun was had by everyone. Roger and Sharon Tracy brought kayaks for the campers to spend some time on Lake Tenkiller nearby. Most importantly, it was reported that the camp was very spiritual with the Lord’s presence being experienced by both staff and campers throughout the week.
