Our Purpose:
The Why, Where and How of Camp Swamp

Camp Swamp Logo
 

Our Purpose

We exist to offer an overnight Christian camp experience at "the safest place on the planet, besides your home", in order to...

Our Mission ( the Why)

Help the generations see God and know His inspiring love through Jesus, so that we can...

Our Vision (the Where)

Be the go-to camp within 300 miles (482 km) of any person on the globe as we follow the Spirit's lead, in a way that...

 

Creates the "my-second-home" camp culture emanating from our Core Values ( the How):

  • Safety

    Everyone (parents, volunteers, counselors, and campers) has to feel mentally, physically, and emotionally safe in order for the spiritual self to be realized. Set an environment of respect; deal with bullies of all kinds, and create a culture of love. (Imagine an atmosphere where last names weren’t important; thus you were known for who you are and not all the ties to your parents, brother, sister, money, position, etc.) Thus our motto: “The Safest Place on the Planet, Besides Your Home.”

  • Diversity

    Celebrate differences!  Whether you are an athlete, scholar, musician, or domino expert, your color, talents, interests, and quirks are accepted and celebrated…each tremendously adds to the cultural tapestry; then the words of Desmond Tutu come alive, “Isn’t it amazing that we are all made in God’s image, and yet there is so much diversity among his people.”

  • Food

    The food needs to be good.  People—especially kids—will remember the food one way or another…and talk about it.

  • Fun

    Everyone needs to have FUN! If it is not fun, no one will want to come back.  The cooks, nurses, campers, counselors all need to have a great time. Allow camp to host a wide age range, like 9-18 for summer camp. You will be amazed at the results and live the words of Dr. Seuss, "Today was good. Today was fun. Tomorrow is another one.”

  • Investment

    Pour all the resources you have into making a perennial camp…one that allows for generations to experience. If you give half your resources, you will get 50% of the results. If you only focus on one year, you may forego the next decade.

  • Leadership

    The rules need to be clear and few with someone who is in charge to enforce them.  They must be enforced or everything will spin out of control and no one will have much fun.

  • Respect

    Everyone from the directors to the volunteers to the campers to the head dishwasher has to feel valued; each has the right to feel like somebody.  The culture of the camp is to make everyone feel like he or she is important.

  • Roles

    Everyone needs to know his or her role, being defined and understood by all parties. If so, then each person will know if he is fulfilling it or not. Each can feel the success of fulfilling it and personal accountability if not.

  • Spirituality

    Have a spiritual camp, not a religious camp.  There is a huge difference between the two. Trust God to work on the young hearts that are open.  If great sermons and convicting preachers always converted people, all of our kids would be disciples. Trust the process and the Spirit.

  • YHWH

    God, Jehovah, has to be made real.  We need to forget trying to indoctrinate kids into the church; let God reveal himself through the stars, the people, the Bible, nature, relationships, and through the spiritual culture that is created; the rest will follow.

JOE MOON | DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE CHAIR

I became a Christian in: 1995 as a college student at the University of Georgia.

I am passionate about the Swamp because: When I graduated college I heard about this project to build a camp for children. I had no idea what it was all about at the time, but I volunteered to help build it. I worked out at camp hauling lumber, breaking up concrete frames on the dining hall, digging trenches and roofing cabins. Little did I know that I was helping build something that would make a tremendous impact on my children’s lives 20 years later. My oldest daughter, Elliot, studied the bible and was baptized out at the Swamp and she says that the Swamp was one of the main reasons that she found Jesus.

My wife and I have been working in the kitchen for about 10 years. It is one of the highlights of our year. We feel so full when we leave. It truly is a little slice of heaven!

My family: Julie and I met in the campus ministry and were married in 1999. We have lived in Athens ever since.

I work for a living doing:

Owner Company Name Armond’s Plastics Location Athens, Georgia

In his later years, Chris completed his Bachelor of Accounting Sciences Degree (Cum Laude) through the University of South Africa and achieved two professional designations – “Professional Accountant (SA)” and “Professional Tax Practitioner (SA)” through the South African Institute of Professional Accountants (SAIPA). Chris’s career spans almost 30 years in Senior Finance positions of the Gold Mining and Manufacturing Industries in South Africa.

He is married to Karen and they have two daughters, who unfortunately missed the camp experience, as SWAMP only launched in Johannesburg when they were adults.

Baptised in 1997, Chris and Karen together led the Children’s Ministry in the Johannesburg Church of Christ for approx. 10 years. Karen was instrumental during the SWAMP launch, with Chris becoming “hands on” a couple years later, assisting with administration and loving being behind the camera taking the “candid snaps”. Having a heart for camp, they also served with the launch of SWAMP Zimbabwe, assisting with administration and training.

Chris and Karen served for a number of years as Family Group Leaders in Johannesburg and Port Elizabeth, with Chris also recently serving on the Advisory Board of Trustees as treasurer, for the Port Elizabeth Church of Christ.

Chris hopes to add value, through his financial knowledge and insight, to compliment the already experienced and dedicated Board.
