Hey, parents! My name is Coleson “Mish” Lechner, and I will be serving as the Castle Rock director for the second half of this summer. My wife Maggie and I just celebrated our second wedding anniversary on May 31. Maggie serves as the event director for The Gathering, and we are excited to be involved in the ministry of day camp this summer. I began working as a summer staffer in 2012 and came on staff full-time in 2016. I cannot wait for a great summer at Castle Rock!

I’m really excited to announce that our theme for the summer is “Foundations.” All week we will be looking at elements that are foundational to a relationship with Jesus. We will be covering the topics of Scripture, faith, love, obedience, grace and mercy, and prayer. With each element we uncover, campers will have the opportunity to look to Jesus, the True Foundation, to learn from his life in each of these areas.

Bible study is one of the first things we do every day at the start of the day, so I want to encourage you to take time to pray for your child after you drop them off. Ask the Lord to guide them to truth and for them to trust in where He leads. We have seen the Lord do great things in the lives of young campers and are expecting the same this summer!

Our Castle Rock team is pumped for this week at camp. It is going to be an absolute blast! Please pray with us for the Lord to show up and do big things. Have an awesome week, and we will see you back at Closing Celebration on Friday. Thanks for trusting us with your kids!
