Jason came to camp on a scholarship. His face lit up as he walked through the office door. Jason loves it here. Camp is the one place he feels safe.
Along with his mom and little sister, Jason lives in a tiny house in a small town in western Minnesota. He is a shy 12 year-old boy who speaks with a slight speech impediment. What he lacks in social skills, Jason makes up for with a tender and caring personality. He has a lot of hurt in his life, but at first glance you wouldn’t know it because of a sweet, enduring smile that stretches from ear to ear.
Jason is used to being bullied, picked on, and left out, but at Inspiration Point Jason doesn’t have to worry about it. At camp, Jason gets to hear that he is loved and valued by God. This past summer, his counselor and cabin mates got to show him what that love looks like. On the last night, his counselor did cabin affirmations and each of the other seven guys complimented Jason. He was beaming! For Jason, this doesn’t happen anywhere else.
Jason left camp this summer with a new found confidence, a few more friends, and knowing that he is loved and valued by God. For Jason and thousands of other kids, Inspiration Point is a safe place to let down walls, ask hard questions, and learn about the love of Jesus Christ.
