Parent Perspective

By Janelle Van Erp
I first heard about Inspiration Point in 1998 when my husband, Tom, was coaching basketball. It was a tradition for the boys to visit with parents and friends while still in their uniforms after the game. One Friday night, three of the athletes took off for the locker room right away, came out soon after, and quickly kissed their moms goodbye before running off with their parents calling after them to drive carefully and have fun. I asked where they were going and got the simple reply from Brenda Ohman, “To camp!” What followed was a beautiful description of the place where these athletes had been spending a week every summer learning about Jesus. Five years later, my son Evan’s best friend invited him to go to Inspiration Point! 
I have five children who are now regular attendees at camp. The summer of 2014, I asked my oldest son how his week at camp had been, and he responded, “Powerful.” That one word describes the outcome of the teaching of the Gospel. 
Camp is a place where every kid has an opportunity to learn that they are a child of God, chosen for His purpose and loved unconditionally. It’s a place that explains the Gospel to every age in a way that’s meaningful, and your child will, without a doubt, come home with something to teach you. However, camp is more than a place, and it’s more than the people: it’s the message. The message that our Father in heaven sacrificed His only Son because He loved us. This message of love permeates every inch of the IPoint property. The Holy Spirit surrounds all who enter with love, and the Van Erp family is able to bring that home.
