MEET Melissa Giddens:

    "I've been involved with camp for over 20 years. I live in North Vernon, and I teach Kindergarten at Sand Creek Elementary. My daughter started coming to camp at a very young age, and now we both come as cabin leaders/dean for camps.  I always help out with Family Camp, I am the Dean for Kindergarten Camp, and I help with primary camp. My favorite part of summer is coming to camp! Not only have I made many friends with campers, but with the leaders as well. Some of my dearest friends are my camp friends! 

     "I don't know what my favorite part of camp is...the food? The pool? Order of the forks? Calling "SECONDS"? Putt-putt golf? No, it's definitely the joy I get when I see the young campers listening to stories and testimonies with open minds and eager hearts. I love answering questions and helping campers learn more about the gospel.

     "I could choose about anywhere for my summer vacation...but Southeastern Baptist Youth Camp is ALWAYS my choice of places to be. It's my sanctuary,  and always will be. I am blessed to know Don and Sarah, and all of the staff and campers at SBYCamp!"
