Reader feedback: Baptized at camp? Share your memories

Summer soon will arrive, and hundreds of campers will sing, swim and sweat at Christian camps across the U.S. and around the world. 

Many will make the life-changing decision to put on Christ in baptism.

Were you baptized at camp? We’d love to hear your story — or any stories you have about your favorite (or not-so-favorite) Christian camping experiences. 

We’re looking for short (40 words or less) testimonials for our Voices section and longer pieces about the blessings of Christian camps for our opinion pages. 

Please post your comments below or email Erik Tryggestad
