Mary L. Hamiltonabout this book: Remember those days of summer camp? The cabins. The sun on the lake. New friends. Campfires. For many of us, a Christian summer camp played an important role in shaping who we are today. But what if your first camp experience included a parent's rejection? And what if you discovered it was for your own protection?
Brady McCaul's dad left when he was seven. Now at 13, his mom drops him off at camp and says he can't come home. She doesn't want you to live with her anymore. Adding to Brady's wound is the camp bully, who uses Brady for verbal target practice. All Brady wants is to go home. But how can he change his mom's mind before the end of the week when they're a hundred miles apart?
A caring counselor, new friends, and a wise camp director guide Brady on his emotional journey, but when he decides to risk everything, he discovers the truth in ways he never imagined.
While your heart aches for Brady, you'll fall in love with Steven--a blind but ever-optimistic cabin mate and Steven's spunky friend, Claire. Camp director,Zeke, will surprise you with his unusual method of keeping the kids' attention during evening worship. And of course, there's Nurse Willie who loves fishing as much as nursing, and Janie--cook and mom-away-from-home to campers and counselors alike.
Though aimed at middle grade readers, adults will also find this story engaging as it brings back lots of great summer camp memories. It's camp so real you can smell the campfire! No bug spray needed.
Rustic Knoll Bible Camp—where kids bring their baggage to camp and learn how to carry it.
