Tina Higginbotham has learned the rewards that come setting aside time to be alone with the Lord and with friends. She says it always makes for a special experience no matter how old she gets. She’ll be the first tell you, “[Honey Creek] was almost like my anchor, my island, my retreat from the storms of life.”
As a high school junior in 1959, Johnny Patelidas was asked by the bishop to carry the cross at the dedication ceremony for Honey Creek. “It was meaningful for me to have carried that cross and to be at the beginning of something,” he says. “[Something] that obviously has turned into what it is now.”
Hugh and Kay Brown first met at Honey Creek back in 1974. They can recall holding hands standing in the lunch line outside of Reese Hall. Today they are married with two children, both of whom have been coming to Honey Creek since they were old enough to do so.
Thomas Greneker, Summer Camp Director and Camp Coordinator at Honey Creek, knows as well as anyone how people meet God in truly tangible ways here. Ask him again and he’ll tell you that “just about every single significant spiritual experience I’ve ever had, happened here at Honey Creek.”
