All in all, I know this phrase has been repeated a lot but there is no other way of describing Aquasports. Aquasports feels like a family! You can come to camp and be accepted Christian or not. It is just a place for everyone to have fun. At camp, I have got to try sports that many people don’t get the chance to. My friends away from camp have not had the opportunity to try water skiing they have only heard about how amazing it is from me going on about camp. At Aquasports you are given the chance to try these sports along with other land sports like Ultimate Frisbee. There was always something that you could do and the thought “I am bored” had not crossed my mind once!
Not only did I make great friends for life, but also I found Christ. Before Aquasports I would call myself a Christian but I wouldn’t pray, read the Bible or even act like a Christian. I was one of those chameleon Christians, always changing how I act in different scenarios. Both the sermons and the time with my leaders challenged me and what my opinion of being a Christian was and not long after my second year of camp I had prayers answered and decided to give my life properly to Christ. I have been going to Aquasports since 2006 and have been going every year since. I remember my first year well, I was a small lad (not grown much since!) and knew nobody there plus the whole experience of camping was new to me. I went expecting to be distant from people and to keep myself to myself as I would when being in a new environment. But what actually happened was completely different. In no time I had made new friends and felt welcome by everyone.
Coming to Aquasports was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Aquasports brings people from all around the UK from all different backgrounds together. It makes everyone feel like they belong somewhere and helps a lot of people through the struggles and rough patches they may face throughout the year. Aquasports is one of the highlights of my summer and I look forward to it all year.
This was my first year at Aquasports because my sister and her friends said I should go. I got so much out of this week – I became a Christian and it has helped my social skills and sports skills. I am coming back next year because I love being around a large group of Christians and it makes me feel comfortable. I can also see other young adults stories of why they are there.
The best place filled with the best people in the world. Thank you Aqua 2019 for the best week ever!! Love everyone so much and already excited to see everyone again soon.
This week at Aquasports has changed me for the better. Seeing the beauty of Gods creation has been amazing, not just in the environment but in the friendships and connections between people. We are all truly blessed. 🙂 Aqua Sports is a truly AWESOME camp. My time being here has made me feel at peace.
Last Sunday I returned from Aquasport and from last Sunday I decided to start a new chapter in my life with God at the centre of it. God and The Bible have played a big part of my life growing up and last week I was able to see the affects it had on other people throughout their lives. I want to thank the Aquasports Team and Campers for making it an unforgettable experience and who have helped me realise what it is like to be unconditionally loved by God. I can’t wait to go back to Camp and continue this new journey I have just begun.
I came to camp this year an atheist. I am now standing before you a Christian.
I’ve never been closer to God than this moment right now.
This week has inspired me to discover God and how much He loves me. Nothing can be that bad when He is on your side.
I started this week with a weak faith and now I’m going to find a church. I thought it was going to be a bit of praying here and there but it’s been Phenomenal.
Thank God so much – I can have faith! I will never be alone because I have God.
I’ve made so many new friends and met so many amazing people which have changed my life. In my opinion it is the best week of the year!
Not only did I make great friends for life, but also I found Christ!
