Wes McNeely

 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 Lutherock near Boone, North Carolina.  My summer will be spent witnessing my faith to over 700 children and youth who come to camp to grow in their faith and have fun in a very special intentional Christian Community.

 I'm excited about camp this summer because of GAGA BALL.  Also, the camp is beautiful, the food is great, the games are a blast and the staff is incredible.  I'm really looking to it all.


How have you seen God at work so far this summer? This summer I have seen God in many different ways: seeing campers conquer a tough hike, singing around campfires and sharing our faith. These constant reminders of God’s presence have been a source of comfort and reassurance.


How has this summer experience impacted your life? Working at camp has often tried my patience, but learning to cooperate with so many different campers has shown me the value of diversity and the good in all people. Camp quickly felt like home, and I feel so welcome and loved by the staff and campers. 

To provide Wes with salary, room, board, and training, it costs over $2555 for the summer. We know this is worth it as it is the summer staff that have the greatest impact on the campers. We are inviting you to invest in their training. By investing in them, we will send you updates and post updates on this webpage about the ministry they are involved in and how it is impacting their life. Your investment in them frees other funds to provide scholarships and improve the program equipment and facilities.The cost of $2,555 breaks down as follows:

  • $555 provides for 1 counselor's training ($47,175 total cost)
  • $2000 provides for 1 counselor's salary
