Taylors Children | CITC Experience: Not What He Expected…Much More!

Posted on Feb 03 at 11:24am

Carson had watched the older elementary kids go off to CentriKid camp in Anderson for years. Finally, he was old enough to go!  But that year we learned that instead of CentriKid camp, Taylors would be hosting something called “Camp in the City.”  Honestly, he was bummed at the prospect of not going off to an overnight camp.  It wasn’t until Mr. John talked about Camp in the City at Summer Spectacular that Carson started to show some interest. And catching a CITC t-shirt flying through the air that same day didn’t hurt, either!

Somewhat reluctantly, Carson agreed to give this new camp experience a try, and by the time I picked him up at the end of Day One, he could NOT stop raving about it.  CITC truly brought the camp experience right to our backdoor.  Every morning as we drove up to the Taylors Rec Center doors, he would recognize all the camp counselors by name, jumping and dancing as they welcomed the campers.

It wasn’t until the last day of camp that Carson really put the connection together … they weren’t just “wild & crazy” teenagers … they were “wild & crazy” to share the Gospel!  We’re counting down the days to CITC 2015!
