Camp Forest Springs
Rebecca (Forbes) Hopkins called WLCC her church-home for many years before she and her husband, Dave Hopkins, felt called to serve the LORD through Christian Camping. They now live in Wisconsin where Dave is Director of Guest Services for Camp Forest Springs. The camps’ mission is to “provide programs and facilities in a camping environment with a trained service-oriented staff who use the Word of God to help initiate faith and cultivate maturity in Jesus Christ.”
Becky is not officially on staff but she does her part to make campers feel welcome. That is, when she is not busy being Mom to: Carter, Moriah, John Henry, & Nellie Ruth.
Camp Forest Springs is unique in that most of the staff-members are responsible for raising their own support. This allows the camp to focus its financial resources on the campers while attracting committed, talented, and motivated individuals (like the Hopkins) to raise support and awareness of Christian camping throughout the country. Becky and Dave still think of WLCC as their “home” church but their impact spreads far beyond our 4-walls.
