Junior Camps (4th-6th Grade): Peter Bunnell
brock youngrenPete Bunnell grew up in the scorching desert heat of Arizona and served as a missionary on the frozen tundra of Mongolia.   With Alta, Iowa as his home of the past 7 years, Pastor Pete now handles all weather extremes well while he leads Children & Family Ministries at Summit Church.  He loves hanging out with his family at Hidden Acres and is excited to be at camp this week.  When he isn’t teaching in chapel, you’ll find him in the dining hall nibbling on warm chocolate chip cookies or exploring the lake in a paddle boat.
