Olivia Smith

 You have a chance to be part of what I am confident will be a life-changing summer for me.  I have the privilege of being selected to serve on the summer staff at Lutheridge near Asheville, North Carolina.  My summer will be spent witnessing my faith to over 2,000 children and youth who come to camp to grow in their faith and have fun in a very special intentional Christian Community.

 I have been on staff for 3 years. She is excited to be on staff this summer to be able to give campers an amazing week filled with fun and lots of adventures where they are able to not only experience God in nature but also through others!


How has God been at work in your summer so far? Each summer is always a new and exciting adventure and I love being able to experience God's love through children! This summer I have been able to really see God's love in children I have been able to gain some amazing insight about God through them.


How has this summer experience impacted your life? It istill amazes me how much children can show and share God's love with others and myself.
