Rich Birch Blog

Parents love Camp Mini-Yo-We! You don’t need to take our word for it. Here are just a few of the dozens and dozens of parents who shared with our team about their kids’ experiences this past summer: 

“After two very challenging years, our son NEEDED camp. He needed a safe place to have fun, let loose and be encouraged. We were delighted to know our son was laughing, enjoying activities and having opportunities for meaningful conversations with staff.” – Rachel G.

“All 3 kids were first-time campers this year. We were so happy to hear when picking them up on the last day that they were already talking about wanting to return next year.” – Jill M.

“She had the best time ever!!! She cried when we picked her up because she didn’t want to leave. We can’t wait until next summer so she can go again! Thank you again for providing such an amazing experience for my girl!” – Lesia Y.

“Asher had a wonderful first experience at camp! He loved his leaders and had so much fun. He can’t wait to come back next year.” – Amber M.

“Both of my kids have social issues, and they are more out of their shells than they have ever been. We have been working…on independence, and this week at camp has been a big step towards growth. [My daughter] has not stopped talking about the friendships she started with such wonderful girls.” – Tichina S.

“Driving home with our kids from camp was not a quiet ride! From the food to the games to worship time to friends in their cabins, we heard it all, and my heart is so full knowing they had a blast. The cabin leaders were so loving when we dropped the kids off and made sure to talk to the kids and us before we left.” – Jen R.

“For their first sleep-away experience, our girls were a bit nervous and very excited. From drop-off, after meeting the cabin leaders, we felt they were in capable hands – even with a few tears from homesickness here and there, the overall experience was fun and memorable.” – Debbie M.

“I am so impressed with the planning of the LIT month…[it] allowed them to form friendships and trust while they learned new skills. My son blossomed in that environment and felt supported throughout. Thank you to everyone who is working so hard to make it such a fruitful experience for teens!” – Jenna H.

“I want to share how pleased I am with the spiritual growth both my kids had coming out of camp this summer. Cole wants to continue with his devotions and grow in his faith. Noah came home from Boys Camp with all of his memory work memorized and even packed his Bible for our family vacation.” – Christy C.

“I was anxious about my 3 sons attending as they were all in different cabins. After camp, they all had nothing but wonderful things to say and all of them spoke so highly about their cabin leaders. The cabin leaders in all 3 cabins were amazing, and I really appreciated the care and kindness they showed to my sons.” – Carolyn B.

“We have been waiting two years to finally attend Camp Mini-Yo-We, and it did not disappoint – it is such a great opportunity for kids to develop independence and connect with peers (which we have really been missing the last few years!). Thank you for providing this fantastic experience!” – Bethany B.

“Grateful for how much of an impact camp had on our daughter. She’s more confident, braver, and more comfortable with her own identity. She’s made some great new friends and memories. And how awesome it is that she’s memorizing Scripture and internalizing it! We will certainly be returning!” – Peter P.

“This was my son’s 1st year at Boys Camp. He was really nervous the 1st day but when I picked him up he very strongly suggested that I sign him up again for summer of 2023. He is so excited about going back.” – Alyssa F.
