"Aldersgate Camp isn't just another summer camp. It's home. Aldersgate has helped form the Christian man I am today. You can definitely feel the presence of God at every Bible study, campfire, even when playing Gaga Ball. It has brought me to so many great people that I wouldn't have met otherwise. Friends that you make at camp will last a lifetime, and so will the experiences you have at Aldersgate Camp!"
