Meet the gal behind the T-shirt design that all the staff and campers will be wearing- Katrina Larson!
Tell us a bit about yourself!
“I am 17 years old, I go to online high school, and I’m the middle child of five. I’ve always loved art of all kinds, mainly painting and drawing. Art is my passion, although I have also loved theatre and have performed in two shows.”
How has camp impacted your life?
“Camp last year was a place where I could escape from the world and just be with God and in his presence. I felt as if I had a chance to process my life, and have a chance to take a look at everything and be able to step away from the craziness of life.”
How has God challenged you recently?
“God has really taught me so much about myself and how to love myself. He’s really taught me that I can’t love those around me until I love myself, and that’s been so meaningful for me.”
Now for a fun fact!
“I have 31 plants growing happily and healthily in my room and they’re my favorite thing to see every morning!”
Onto the T-shirt design! What are your thoughts on what you created?
“I'm really proud of this design because I think it represents a lot of things. The path is God's path for us that we follow, and our job as leaders is to show how God has given everyone His own path for us. The mountains are also something that I've always loved, and I feel that they represent Chilliwack and their forests and life there.
“My hope is that this T-shirt is more than just a T-shirt. I hope that in the future you could hold that shirt and remember the memories you had at camp. Remember the joys, maybe some tears, smells of pine, tastes of marshmallows by the fire, and all the friendships and the kindness of people.”
So there you have it! But don’t worry - you’ll see Katrina in more than just her design. This summer she will be an LIT for a second time!
