What do our campers think?

I really feel for the female population of the world, as they will never be able to completely comprehend the true meaning of the word awesome, and all its associated synonyms. GENTS has and continues to influence me, as it helps me walk closer to God, brings change in the lives of other young men, and prescribes me a strong dose of concrete pills. GENTS camp, I salute you. – Eric Smith

GENTS Camp is arguably the best camp a guy could go on; Christian or not. There is so much fun stuff to do! The SP.I.T. times are really inspirational and have influenced who I am today. GENTS Camp has also toughened me up for the real world and being an assistant leader helps me give back into the lives of young men. – Chris Lehman

GENTS camp… There is much to say that can’t even begin to describe the difference it has made in my life and the lives around me. For me it really communicates a fierce, goal-driven, risk-taker side of Jesus that is masculine and about fighting for what’s right! Not only does it encourage me to be a real man in God but to also represent Christian values in a real, down-to-earth way in every day living. – Daniel Bignall

GENTS camp really helped keep me on the straight and narrow. I have been on one every year since I was in grade 8 and I am now a first year Uni student and have been a leader on GENTS!  Guys, if you are looking for an awesome way to test your manliness, toughness and bravery, this is your camp! But all the awesome activities fade away when it comes to the close encounter you have with God. I’m not sure I can do the camp justice!  Truly epic! – Will Lehman

GENTS Camp, just WOW. It’s hard for me to think where I would be if I didn’t go on GENTS Camp in 2005. It helped me take a grip of my own faith and since then I have never let go. I am so privileged to still be going on GENTS since 2005 – moving up from camper, to assistant leader and now a leader – but most of all to see so many guys have their eyes opened to the wonder of God. – Tom Grealy

GENTS camp influenced who I am today! I have met many amazing people who have helped me through issues that I have faced and am still facing today, not only that but have influenced me in a way to lead a God-driven life. Starting as a camper and moving up through the ranks, I am now a leader and a fully fledged MAN!  As a leader, I have now been given responsibility to reach out to the kids and share the amazing news of the gospel to those who come along as campers. GENTS camp is an amazing ministry to get involved in and it really does change the lives of kids today. I know… cause its changed mine! – Peter Greenwood
