From the Outside In

Posted by on Nov 16, 2014 in LLYC: The Beat

There really isn’t any way to overstate how great we feel about LLYC associate director, Karla Heath. In this post from the Roundup Newsletter, she looks back on her first summer in the canyon and shares unique insights about what camp looks like from the perspective of a newcomer. Karla’s viewpoint is invaluable, and we can’t help but smile and nod in agreement […]

It’s simple: camp is fun. We live in a beautiful river valley, and our days are filled with excitement, new friends, laughter, dancing and singing. As I read this verse, though, I am grounded by the reminder that Jesus called us to go and make disciples- that’s what LLYC is really about. We ask God to set the Gospel into […]

Happy Halloween!!! Check out this post by Jenny Hendricks- she has a unique way of capturing what we at LLYC are all about.

For those of you who might have missed it, take time to read this heartfelt letter from our Senior Director, Chandler Pruitt, about his work alongside LLYC legend Frog Sullivan.

Applying to Work at Camp: Just Do It!

Posted by on Oct 07, 2014 in LLYC: The Beat

I live in Austin, pretty close to UT campus, which means I run into LLYC folks all the time. Some of them were my campers, some I worked with, and some remember me only as “that pregnant lady” married to the incomparable Barrett Raven (we worked out at camp the summer we were expecting our […]

A Refuge: Camp and God

Posted by on Sep 16, 2014 in LLYC: The Beat

Ahhhh, the first cool-front of the year hits, and suddenly we are wearing sweaters and drinking hot chocolate (if only for a few days.). If you- like me- need a reminder of why LLYC is worth waiting another 9 months for, check out this interview with musician and Young Lifer Justin McRoberts. Even as an adult, […]
