Camp Quotations: Reggie Dabbs

“Camp was seven incredible weeks of hot days, late nights, and messy games. As a staff worker my days included everything from preparing and serving food in the kitchen to putting Band-Aids on minor boo-boos in the nurse’s station to cleaning toilets in the bathhouse. The only worse than the hours was the pay, but I relished every minute of it. Working at camp was an experience that shaped my work ethic and my impressions of the value of ministry to youth.”

-Reggie Dabbs, motivational speaker, in his book Reggie
