STEVE WEST'S CAMP STORY:
Sumatanga has been a huge part of my spiritual formation. I grew up going to multiple summer camps. In college, I served on the Junior High Team and on Nina's Team all four years. I have served as a counselor or speaker at subsequent camps, and got heavily involved in Music and Arts Week as chaplain many times and even dean once. I went on my Emmaus Walk and served on a few subsequent walks, and got heavily involved in the Academy for Spiritual Formation.
So, I'm glad to give back to the place that always welcomed me home. Like Bert Goodwin always used to say, "Sumatanga is holy ground."
