Meet the Camp Polaris Staff
The Camp Polaris staff worked together like a well-oiled machine. They were loving, caring, and very committed to the campers. They seemed to enjoy every minute of their ministry even without toilets, electricity, or showers.
“I love the kids and sharing the light of Jesus with them.” —Katie Fry, counselor
“I like to teach the kids new songs about God each summer. The public school teachers tell us that the kids sing or hum these songs all year.”—Travis Holm, right
“I was about to start teaching my Bible class, when Laci asked me why Jesus had to come to earth to die. Her question is the whole reason we’re here!” —James Ellison, chaplain
“We teach the children how to pray, giving them a means of leaning on Someone who can be there when we can’t be.”— Dwaine Vaughn
“I think one of the biggest impacts Camp Polaris has on the campers is that they know there are people here who love them and whom they can trust.”—Sherilyn Holm, camp nurse
“I like working with at-risk kids because I was one myself, and I feel that I can relate to them well. At Polaris, the campers get to see that there’s another way of life and that they have choices.”—Kasey Thomason, center
“The best thing about working at Camp Polaris is that I’m able to see kids become excited about God.
“A bathhouse with hot showers would be wonderful! Every camper in my cabin had swimmer’s itch from swimming because there was no way to 5 rinse off.”—Heather Ueeck, right
