Key Note Speaker

TerryTERRY HERSHEY, an inspirational speaker, humorist, author, organizational consultant and designer of sanctuary gardens. Terry holds a mirror up to our fast-forward, disconnected lives, and offers us the power of pause—the wisdom of slowing down and the permission to take an intentional Sabbath moment to regain emotional and spiritual bal-ance… to find the sacred in every single day.

The Camp is an attempt to take seriously the spiritual needs and journeys of primarily retired people. We attempt to challenge participants through keynote speakers, workshops, worship and interaction with one another.
