Thunderhead Episcopal Center Updates

WHY DO YOUNG PEOPLE GO TO TEC?

“My favorite part of camp is just being able to come and see people I care about.”

“I like to go to TEC because I always meet new people. I like how peaceful I feel when I go. It’s nice to go far out, with no cell phones, and not have to worry about anything but yourself and God!”

“The reason I like TEC is because I like meeting new people and getting to know them.”

“My favorite part of camp was going to chapel for morning prayer and compline.”

WHAT DO CAMPERS LEARN AT TEC?

“That we’re all family.”

“How to live with different people and love one another.”

“Even though everyone has a bad day, we can all make those days better.”

“It’s better to make friends rather than enemies.”

“That God is everything. Love is powerful.”

“TEC is important to me because it’s an escape from everyday life. The best parts are getting way from technology, worshipping, and gaining a greater relationship with God, other campers, and forming life-long friendships.”
