Today was an awesome day, and I hope your campers all had as much fun as I did!
To catch up, last night in chapel we played a game called “The Gorilla Gets the Man” before worship. It’s like whole body rock paper scissors and we play until one person is left standing and it’s great.
Take Camp Home: Ask your camper to teach you “Gorilla Gets the Man” and play as a family.
After worship, we got to hear from our speaker Rocky again. He told us about a few more role models in his life and what they taught him about being a “Knight of the Lord’s Table.” We also read Hebrews 11 and talked about acting by faith for God’s glory.
This morning started off similar to yesterday with the polar dip, flag raising, breakfast, and then splitting up for boys and girls chapel. Today in girl’s chapel, the campers learned about healthy relationships with a boy, both friendships and romantic relationships. Then, they got the opportunity to ask some of the female staff members questions, and we had a great discussion. The boys talked about purity as a man of God and what that looks like.
Campers then had a short section of free time while staff set up their clinics and seminars. I was leading a seminar on creative writing today, so I was not around to get pictures of the other groups today. It was an amazing experience to share my writing knowledge with younger writers and hear their incredibly creative ideas.
After seminars and clinics came lunch and then mail call. It was my group’s turn to do the mail call skit today, so I also did not get pictures of that, but it was a very punny skit.
Once campers got their mail, free time began!
Take Camp Home: Ask your camper if they had a favorite craft this week. Is it something you could do at home together? Try coming up with your own craft!
Following free time was flag lowering followed by supper out on the North 40 Field.
Then came the Volleyball Tournament!
Tonight, campers will be heading into evening chapel, and then they have cabin devotionals until lights out!
