 10/19/09   5     5     5     5     5   I wish I could stay forever. The staff is awesome, they are well trained and attentive to every camper. I went alone, but never had a problem meeting new people and making friends. Hettie is amazing, the activities are always fun, and the environment is so accommodating to genuine renewal of spirit and life. Everyone should go to this camp... and if you're too old for the camp, check out the womens ministry, mens ministry, or couples. Brookhill Ranch truly continues to be a source of inspiration and beauty, even after 54 years of service. RID: 31365

 10/5/09   5     4     4     5     5   This camp isn't about facilities, or activities. This camp is about the love of God changing people. The counselors show the love of Christ to a generation that is used to being rejected. I highly recommend this camp. I was a camper for 5 years and soon to be a junior counselor. God is using this camp to affect the lives of thousands of youth. RID: 31220

 10/3/09   5     5     5     5     5   I love Brookhill. It has transformed me into the person I am today. I went there for 3 years as a camper and I currently work on staff as a senior counselor. This is a great camp because Jesus is the center of everything we do. The counselors give everything they have to the campers to make them feel loved and accepted. So many campers I talk to tell me the reason they love Brookhill so much is because they can be themselves and they feel loved. We have great senior staff and our purpose is to show children the love of Christ. Camp has changed my life. Go Chestnuts!-- Gabi RID: 31200

 10/2/09   5     5     5     5     5   Brookhill is a wonderful camp - I was a camper there for five years then worked there almost twice as long - I learned many things there that have been important in my life. I sent my oldest daughter there for the first time this summer and she loved it. She took a friend with her who was homesick and begged me to take her back home before she even registered - then thanked me later for making her stay - I can't say enough about the wonderful staff who unselfishly serve the campers!

 10/1/09   5     4     5     5     5   I went to Brookhill for years. I truly believe that a large part of who I am as a Christian is because of this place and the people that work there and love so selflessly. As an adult, I have taken my children every year they were eligible to go. They loved it. Over the years we have taken many friends and family members. They all were just as pleased as we were. Parents, give up whatever you have to to make sure your kids get to go. They will never be the same and you will be so glad you did. RID: 31171

Click to report rating    7/23/08   5     5     5     5     5   I went to Brookhill 30 years ago for the 1st time and continued for 11 years! I was a camper for 7 and a counselor for 4. Now, my kids go. My oldest was a counselor this year. Where else can you go and get close to God, be accepted and loved, no matter what, and have an AWESOME time! I wouldn't trade it for anything! Please ignore the posts that downgrade Brookhill, I mean come on, your at camp not the Hilton! Of course the bathrooms are going to be rugged and there is not going to be air! Its the country. When I was a kid I can't even remember the heat, all I remember is the fun. So, give it a try if you haven't, it is worth the money and your kids will have a life changing experience! Thanks Hettie Lou and Don for what you gave us and what you are still giving to our kids now! RID: 25060

Click to report rating    6/30/08   5     3     5     5     5   Where else can 9-15 yr old kids go and feel so special, get connected to a REAL God, have lots of really fun activites, and leave feeling special and loved? NO WHERE...3 kids, 6 years each, and it was the best money I ever spent! Yes, they need AC, but hey my sons sure appreciate home when they come back! Love the staff, VERY dedicated, Christ centered like none other...and I have seen many. Too bad there is no Brookhill for all the hurting adults in the world!!! If we would all love each other as Brookhill teaches our kids too, the world would be a happy place. My sons always come home humbled, convicted to live for God, and to get the trash out of their daily lives. They are rededicated to God, read their bibles, and actually say THANKS MOM, that was great! I cant say enough good things about this awesome place. SEND YOUR KIDS!!!! YOU WONT BE SORRY!!!!

Brookhill is by far the coolest, most awesomest, best camp in the world RID: 21963

Click to report rating    3/28/08   5     5     5     5     5   I was a Senior Counselor at Brookhill THIRTY years ago this summer! Wooo-hoo "Summer Staff of '78"! Patty, Martha, Leslie, Kathy, Tony, Becky..and JC's Steven, Stephanie, JimmyBeth! Can't remember you all (getting old!)...In just ONE summer of serving Christ and the FABULOUS kids at Brookhill, God changed my life. I was 19 and a Christian but with no real direction. My summer there was the turning point in my walk with God. It was where I realized I could have a real relationship of my own and COULD NOT just rely on my parents relationship with Jesus! He became real to me that summer and I grew up so much. Imagine what going to Brookhill could do in the hearts of children when as a working Camp Counselor, it impacted me so much...here it is 30 years later and I still sigh and smile when I think of Small Lake, Honor Cabin, Olympics,Hobo Dinners, and of course...not knowing if I needed to blow dry my hair more...OR if I had finished and just started sweating! Love to you all.. SANDY RID: 21685

Click to report rating    6/29/07   5     5     5     5     5   Both of our grandchildren have attended this camp for several years with our granddaughter now a counselor. Our grandson went as a shy, dyslexic 9 year old and came home full of confidence and with a boatload of stories. It truly changed his way at looking at himself and the world around him. I cannot say enough good things about the positive influence the camp has on the children. I strongly recommend it. RID: 12600

Click to report rating    4/19/07   5     4     5     5     5   Life changing awesome! I want my whole family & EVERYONE one I know to get to this camp & all it's different seminars for men, women & kids! Hettie is intense & REAL & the staff gives it their ALL. You can tell the difference between other camps that just go thru the motions & attempt to entertain & give you stuff to fill time. This camp fills your soul & you have a great time! By the way....the food is great too!I left this place different then when I came. The change has stuck & I'm about to go back to get some more & see what God is going to do this time. I'm bringing 9 friends w/ me & can't wait to see how much they love it.I guess that's it in a nutshell~~it's a place you want to bring everyone you love, because you know it's ALL ABOUT GOD & how can that ever be bad?

Click to report rating    12/30/06   5     5     5     5     5   Brookhill has an amazing, warm environment. I went to Brookhill as a camper for six years, and I have been a junior counselor for two years. The training of the staff is excellent. Each child is noticed and no one sinks into the background. There are activites during all parts of the day. It is not a church camp where you spend hours in intense bible study, rather the goal of Brookhill is to teach how much fun you can have living the Christian way. There are not expensive attractions, but kids are well entertained by the activities. The amount of down time is limited and all areas are supervised. Kids come back from Brookhill with a new outlook on life. RID: 6372

Click to report rating    8/30/06   5     5     5     5     5   My daughter LOVES this camp. We have gone for 2 years and this year she came home with something different inside her. It all finally clicked and in the process she has clicked off the TV. This is a wonderful healthy environment that takes kids back to the basics and teaches them what is important. God, family, yourself. It allows them to commune with nature and with God and their peers who have the same committment to the Sole Creator. I hate that we only have a few years left to go. At first the price seemed a little steep but then can you really put a price on your child's soul? Expect us again next year, this time for the 2 week sessions and the year after that, and the year after that, etc. Praise God you are here. A very happy parent RID: 2607
