"Camp Like Max" where a "child" can be 7 years old forever!

Camp Like Max - Forever 7 Fund has been established by Shane and Missi Henderson in memory of their son, Max, to support the programming and activities of Camp Like Max. The Henderson Family is creating a camp to offer an experience to other youth to “live like Max” who wanted “to be 7 years old forever.” Their long-term vision is to build a year-round camp/facility that will have indoor play and riding spaces, in addition to outdoor opportunities, as well as to support families that have suffered a traumatic event.

Max was special. He loved sports, especially the ones coached by his dad. His favorites were soccer, basketball, and baseball. He was a member of the Winfield Heat, where he sported number 38 (cause that’s how old his dad was when he was born), and shared the field with a group of his best friends. He was also a rodeo kid to the core. He was a true champion, fearless, handy, coachable, and the epitome of a good sportsman. He loved to win, but was the first to congratulate a fellow competitor. Under any circumstances that involved competition he was ever a “clutch” competitor. You would think he was on the downside of a situation and boom, he’d finish on top.

Max was a bright light and a loyal friend. He could make his mom mad and have her laughing before punishment was even thought of. No one was more proud of him than his parents. He was Murphy’s best friend, yet took great joy in “poking the bear” on occasion. He touched many and will not be forgotten.

Max was witty, outgoing, loving, and tough as nails, right up to his walk with the Lord on September 15, 2019. He told his mom many times “he wanted to be 7 forever”. He may have known something we didn’t. While he will be fiercely missed, his family challenges all who knew him to not honor him with sadness, but please, honor him with joy, love, faith, and laughter.
