Super Kids 1 campers are here at Camp, and we can tell that it’s going to be an incredible week! They have already filled Camp with their endless energy, laughter, and fun. After arriving at Camp yesterday afternoon, they found themselves meeting their counselors and cabin mates, taking their swim tests, and settling into their cabins. They then could be found exploring main camp, or playing various games in the Hub. It is so fun to see these campers enjoying Camp right away!
When all the campers had arrived, it was time for “Who’s Who” at the Steps of Faith. Our Master of Ceremonies, Brook, introduced the non-counseling staff to the campers, and then introduced all of the counselors to everyone else! Then it was time for flag lowering (every morning and evening, we raise and lower the flag – tonight, a group of staff showed the campers how it is done; for the rest of the week, cabins get to volunteer to do it). Then a picnic meal, where cabins could find a fun spot outside to hang out and get to know each other. How fun!
Following dinner, campers met for the first time in the main hall! This is where chapels will be held all week. First, though, we sang an action song (Every Move I Make/Lord I Lift Your Name On High). Then it was time to hear the Rules and Guidelines for the Funnest Fun! These are what keep all our campers and staff safe so that they can truly have the Funnest Fun during their week at Camp! Campers also met the Fishing Grandparents who will be assisting campers down on the fishing docks and in the pontoon boats during Free Times (there is a week-long fishing contest, with a chart for campers to record their big catches)! After Rules and Guidelines were done, campers left with their cabin to get a tour of Camp from their counselors.
After camp tours, the bell rang for our first Chapel service! This week, we are hearing from our speaker, Shane Hollenbeck! After worship time, Shane introduced himself to campers and welcomed them to Camp, and then invited them to join him in learning more about Jesus this week.
TAKE CAMP HOME
Talk to your camper about the first night of Camp. What do they remember doing with their cabin that first night? What was something they were hoping to learn during their week?
After Chapel, campers got to enjoy some canteen time, before heading back into the main hall for the Staff Variety Show! This is all prepared and performed by Camp’s very own summer staff! Lots of laughs could be heard during this show. Then, it was time for campers to head back to their cabins for devos and bed time.
