Work hard, play hard! As a staff we worked hard this summer to have one of our best Summer Adventures programs to date at the Centers, but we also made time for fun with our families and our friends. As summer somehow already comes to a close, we are reflecting on our favorite memories.
Evan, Executive Director
This summer has been a blast with our two boys, Owen and Ethan, keeping us on our toes. We got to spend a whole week on a farm in June with some beloved friends. Owen’s favorite part was chasing the chickens around and running from the geese! Sometimes we just need a break from city life and this trip was so good for our souls.
Kendall, Henderson Center Director
My highlight this summer was spending my first summer with my wife. We went on so many different adventures both in and out of the city! We drove to the Seven Magic Mountains, which was really cool, and we took a road trip to Dallas for my brother-in-law’s wedding. We also spent a lot of time swimming and hanging out with our friends. It’s been a blast getting to know Katie more and sharing in all these experiences together as husband and wife!
Jessica, Las Vegas Center Director
This summer has been an amazing summer of firsts for my family and I. It was my first summer on staff with Club Christ, which was awesome!! We experienced our first family trip to Six Flags Magic Mountain. Our family concentrates on life being an adventure and we love to be adventurous together. We rode roller coasters together and screamed and laughed hysterically. We also went to the Santa Monica Pier where our three daughters tried their first ever funnel cake!! We relaxed on the beach, splashed against the waves, and dug in the sand; creating lasting memories of togetherness. We also sent our oldest daughter to her first summer camp trip where she learned to intentionally get into adventure with God! We have enjoyed the change of pace with summer and are so excited about the new adventures the school year will bring!!
Angela, Program Director
This summer has been one of my favorites and it totally flew by! There are definitely two highlights though. I started my new role at Club Christ as Program Director in June. I loved writing the summer curriculum and organizing all of it. Since then I’ve been working on the teen curriculums for the school year and writing grants; I am excited about this opportunity to grow and strengthen my skills! The other highlight of my summer was that I traveled a BUNCH. In June I went to Denver and Los Angeles, in July I went to Los Angeles/Santa Monica, and in August I went to Prescott, Arizona and Denver again. I traveled to Denver for my best friend Megan’s bridal shower and wedding, Los Angeles for a trip with the Henderson teens and then in July as a mini-vacation, during which I went to Harry Potter world at Universal Studios (#bestdayever), and then for five days in August I led a group of nine amazing 5th grade girls at Kids Camp in Arizona. So many special memories in those trips and I feel very lucky that I was able to experience each one!
