For Annie Powell, what began as a childhood dream has become a thriving Catholic summer camp hosting students nationwide for outdoor week-long excursions in Colorado's Rocky Mountains.
"Alright Lord, I guess that's what I want to do: I want to create a summer camp that brings people to you and to your creation," Annie Powell, founder of Camp Wojtyla, recalls telling God in prayer when she was 15.
Eventually, that prayer turned into a reality when in 2006, Camp Wojtyla was established under the direction of Annie and her husband, Scott.
"When we started dating, and then preparing for marriage, it really became sort of a mission for our marriage," she told CNA July 30, "we wanted our marriage to bring people to the Lord."
