Paulette lives in Indianapolis, IN with Jake, her pretty-darn-good-looking husband of 20 years and Maggie, Lia, and Zoe, their adorable Goldendoodles. She surrounds herself with lots of fun twenty-somethings that keep life interesting.

She calls Indian Creek Christian Church home and has served there for over eighteen years. She has authored multiple Bible studies including Sand Surfers, Rescued, MindShift, Got Ears?, and Devoted, just to name a few.

Special Guest Worship Leader

Mandy Harvey

Worship Leader Mandy Harvey

What a honor to have Mandy Harvey return as a our worship leader for the weekend. As a third generation Lake Aurora camper she brings a unique testimony of God working in her life to bring Him even more glory in her "hardship turned blessing". The current pandemic's affect on her schedule has made it possible for Mandy join us. To God be the glory!

What to Bring:

This is a camp, so dress is casual. Bring comfortable shoes and a jacket for possible chilly weather.

Other suggestions are notebook, camera, flashlight, insect repellant, lawn chair (workshops have limited seating) and rain gear. Some like to bring table games for late night laughs in the game room.
