We are so excited about what the Lord is doing at Deer Creek already this year! About three weeks ago we had Matt Slavik join our staff here at camp. Matt joins us from Arkansas with many years of camp experience. With only a couple of days to settle in, we have been busy traveling on our recruiting trips seeking out incredible staff to join us this summer. While Matt continues to learn his way around the beautiful Hill Country, he is doing incredible work for us in the office and on the road. It will be so wonderful to have him on leadership this summer. His eagerness to learn and joy that can only come from the Lord, adds to a great dynamic here in the office. With a few more months until the summer, we know that Matt will continue to settle in to his new home in Medina, TX and his new position at Deer Creek!
At the beginning of this month, we began our recruiting process for our staff that will serve and love on all of the children that come through the gates beginning June 3rd! We have already been to A&M, Baylor, SNU, and OSU. It has been a busy month for us between recruiting, retreats, and several Bear Jamborees! 2012 came and we hit the ground running here at camp! It has been a wonderful start to the New Year, and we are looking forward to seeing what the Lord does these next few months! He has been with us every step of the way, and we know that He will continue to be with us as we further His Kingdom and glorify His name in everything we do!
