Welcome Betty!

This year’s Camp Daniel intern is Betty Miller. She moved into the Brunot House, the girls group home, the beginning of October. She had been living in Green Bay attending UWGB, working towards a degree in Human Development. 

Betty is originally from Whitehall, a teeny tiny little town between Eau Claire and La Crosse. She heard about Camp Daniel through her friend Katie Cohen back in 2006 and decided to volunteer that summer. That summer impacted her greatly and she has volunteered every summer since.

This past summer, she really felt God leading her to do the internship program. So, she decided to take a year off of school and invest the ministry of Camp Daniel. She is expecting this year to strengthen her relationship with God as she learns to depend on him and hear his voice. She is also hoping to gain some clarity with the direction of her life after this year’s program.

Currently, Betty is busy serving in several areas. She plays a big part of The Able Church in Green Bay. She helps with members of The Able Church lead the worship singing time. She also helps with the Special Olympics program and leads the women’s Bible study. At camp, she helps Trish maintain the grounds and helps molly in the office. She is also a leader for a youth group in Crivitz.

One of Betty’s major accomplishments, so far, has been to put on Camp Daniel’s first women’s retreat here on the Camp Daniel grounds. This retreat had 10 campers and 5 counselors. Its theme was called Beautiful Things, with speaker Becky Bazette-Jones and worship leaders, Jill Kocian & Molly McMurry. It was a wonderful and fun time had by all.

We are so glad to have Betty here with us and be a part of our family. We are excited to watch her grow and see where God leads her in her future. Please pray for Betty as she continues to sacrifice and serve within the Camp Daniel and disability community.
