“I was a staff kid,” says Jenny, “I have a deep connection to the history of Pioneer Alberta. I also have a clear calling to the future. As we emerge from the difficult years of the COVID pandemic, I am eager to help bring stability, clarify purpose and renew hope for this generation of young people.”
Jenny values camp as key place for children, teens, and young adults to know Jesus and experience God in significant ways.
“People need hope,” says Jenny. “So many people feel so stuck; camp gives them a break from the hard stuff of life and gives a sense that there could be connection, purpose and meaning.”
