Hello! My name is Janet Koostra. I’m a member and staff person from First Congregational United Church of Christ in Great Falls. I’m married to Bob and have two grown daughters, Zoie and Molly. Bob and I have three cats: Mitt, Sam and Leo. I’m very active at church, have held many leadership positions, and have been the Christian Education Coordinator for 5 years. I like to read, cook, walk, and lift weights. I am very excited to return to Camp Mimanagish as a program leader. I served as program leader for 3rd – 4th grade camp for 5 years, from 2008-2002012 (I think those are the correct years, lol).
Camp Mimanagish is a very spiritual place for me, a place where I can truly feel God’s presence. Mimanagish is one of my “thin” places between heaven and earth. One of my favorite things about camp is CAMP SONGS!!! So get ready to sing!
And unlike almost everyone else on earth, another one of my favorite things about camp is the Boulder Road. It is such a scenic path that forces travelers to slow down and breathe deep. Its pace gives our hearts, minds and souls time to prepare for the spirit of camp. And it gives us time when we leave camp and go “down the mountain’ to prepare to re-enter the “real” world which seems so unreal after a sojourn at camp. I hope you, too, will feel such nearness to God through your own camp experience!
