CounselorNew Staff

Sarah Baker heard about camp from a staffer at boy's camp! She is thrilled to be on staff & cannot wait for summer!

What is one thing you can't live without?

It would be really hard for me to live without dance! I’ve taken dance classes since I was little and I love to dance anytime, anywhere! I got learn lots of ballet, tap, musical theater, ballroom, jazz, and modern dances, and jazz is my favorite. Dancing makes me so happy, whether it’s in class, in my room in the mornings, on the stage, in the car with my friends, or in the kitchen!

Would you rather run a marathon, bungee jump, or go scuba diving?

I would love to go bungee jumping. Even though I haven’t been bungee jumping, I’ve always loved other exhilarating things roller coasters and zip lines so I think I would like it a lot!

If you could live anywhere, where would it be & why?

If I could live anywhere, I would live in Greece! The cities and views there are so beautiful and the weather is gorgeous. I’ve always really loved learning about history and there’s a lot of history in Greece to explore!

If you could travel back in time to any historical event, which one would it be?

If I could go back to any historical event, I would choose the Sermon on the Mount! The religious leaders during Jesus’ time were so concerned with the rules that they missed the whole heart of them, but Jesus challenged the culture and called people to a higher standard. It would be so amazing to sit and listen to the teaching of Jesus in person while hearing about the love and care He has for us!

What are you most excited for this summer?

I’m most excited to grow closer to Jesus in my time at camp! I can’t wait to spend the whole summer with people who will encourage me and point me to Christ while we get to sing, laugh, swim, dance, and worship our Savior together! I’m excited to teach campers about the love Jesus has for them and I hope God will use me to influence their lives in a really powerful way. I can’t wait for all the life-giving friendships God will give me through Crestridge and I’m counting down the days until I get to live there!

What are you praying for in anticipation of this summer?

I’m so thankful for the opportunity to serve Jesus alongside such amazing people! Preparing my heart for summer, the main thing I’m praying for is that God will guide my steps as He uses me to draw campers to Himself! I pray that everything I say & do would be a reflection of His work in my heart and that I would use every opportunity to tell girls about Jesus. I’m praying that God will work in my campers’ hearts and that they will grow physically, emotionally, mentally, & spiritually in their time at camp. I pray that every moment I get to spend with them will be fruitful and that they will leave feeling blessed, encouraged, & loved!
