Years Experience

From the Director’s Desk

Hey! I’m Kolbe Cole and I’m this year’s Director of Hayes Summer Camp. I have been with the camp for 5 years now and this is my third year being Director. With me now on staff at TRAILS Ministries all year around for the first time my focus is to really continue to build the program to make sure you’re getting the best camp experience in the summer.  I’m so excited for this year and what God has in store for all of us!

I absolutely love this time of the year! Camp Season! Our Teen Camp was a huge success last year.  On any given day during the camp season you would see a group of kids around town participating in some kind of fun activity. I am looking forward to that same experience this year for the teens in Beaver Falls.  With the teens in Beaver Falls in their own element the 5 to 8 year old groups really had the freedom to explore their sites and get the attention they deserve. This successful camp layout will be used again for this year.

We are adding yet another element to the Hayes Summer Camp this summer.  Hayes Summer Camp is adding a New Brighton Site! This addition is largely based on our increased involvement with New Brighton during the school year with the TRAILblazers After School Program and our amazing partnership with New Brighton United Methodist Church. I really want to immerse each camper into their community and give them a sense of community awareness.

I’m so blessed to be a part of the TRAILS family again this year and I just want all of you to know that I am still available to you for any questions or concerns about camp. Great qualified staffing is still a focus this year and our goal is to ultimately feed into campers the love of Christ and give them lasting memories in our communities with their friends, families, and mentors.

See you at Camp!

We serve hundreds of kids each summer. Help us to keep teaching our kids the love of Christ.
