I grew up in another denomination and, therefore, never knew about or attended Camp Sumatanga as a child. my first experience with Camp was through church picnics and outings and in taking my own children to Camp.
I fell in love with sumatanga and came to recognize it as truly Holy ground during my Emmaus Walk in 1997. Walk #179 changed my life and I have but to walk on the grounds of Sumatanga to be spiritually carried back to that very special time. On every return, the peace and serenity of the Camp stills the chaos of my world and prepares me to walk closer to God and to better serve others. This photo was taken during Emmaus Walk #490, just three weeks ago, when I went to one of my favorite spots to pray.
