Youth Summer Camp in North Idaho
A LITTLE ABOUT THE DIRECTORS
Camp Director; Girls Director and Programing: Rebekah Garvin
Rebekah (Hadassah's mom) is happy to follow Hadassah's lead and help Hadassah be successful, because she herself has always wanted a camp of her own. Rebekah is currently the Executive Director of Teshuvah Ministries.
Rebekah's work at Summer Camp is extensive. She attended Big Lake Summer Camp in Oregon most of her growing up years. In college she worked at Camp Cedar Falls in Southern California then Camp MiVoden in North Idaho. As an adult she worked for 600 Christian Camps across the country helping them advertise their summer programs and she spent hundreds of hours in volunteer work helping directors with their campfire programs. For nearly a decade she ran a successful Worthy Camper Scholarship Program and sent thousands of dollars to camps so that they could accept children who couldn't afford to other-wise be there. Rebekah was part of the Christian Camping Industry for nearly 15 years. She served the campers as a Girls Counselor, Waterfront Director, Swim Instructor, Lifeguard and in Programing. Among many other youth-oriented things she volunteered as a Youth Taskforce Worker for the UCC in the Spokane area and went with a youth group as Vacation Bible School Leader to the jungles of Malaysia. She's ready to spend a few summer days with your camper facilitating fun and meaning into their experience with her and Papa Yahweh.
Assistant Camp Director and Assistant Programing: Hadassah Garvin
Hadassah has been wanting to get kids together who believe like her for a long time (the same as her mom). Last year, at 13 years old she decided to do it herself. Instead of waiting for someone else to do it, she picked a date, created a schedule, got the location and called her friends––then told her mom about it. Her camp had 4 girls last summer. It was so fun that she wants to do it again! This summer she is hoping for 16 kids to join her!
Boy's Director: Isaac Garvin
Isaac worked year-round for 5 years at Camp MiVoden as Maintenance. He says it was the best job he ever had.
Can parents join camp? No. You are welcomed to stay for a few hours on Sunday during the afternoon to help your child get settled, but parents are asked to leave before dinner on Sunday and then pickup their child on Wednesday after 2pm. To attend a family-type situation, Teshuvah Ministries hosts a Family Sukkot every year in the Fall that you are welcomed to register for.) Thank-you!

But one of us will go to the Ranger's Station twice a day (morning and evening) to check messages on our phone and give a quick update to parents of the younger campers. Contact with parents during summer camp can disrupt a campers experience of camp and make them homesick so we ask that contact be minimal. Thank-you! (They will have so m much to tell you when they get home!!! )
