WOW! What an amazing week we have had with all of our 5th and 6th graders and Day Campers! Each of them has been such a blessing to all the staff this week and we are sad to see them go. We have been able to watch some amazing friendships begin and watch children decide to dedicate their lives to Christ. We could not have asked for a better week! We hope our campers have a great rest of the summer and we hope to see some familiar faces back with us in July or next year. We hope as the Summer goes on our campers will continue to use what they have learned about the love of Christ at camp for the rest of their time outside of camp!
Our campers had an excellent last full day of activities! Even though the week is coming to a close they still have many adventures ahead. Tonight they will be doing presentations with their Bible study to show everyone what they have learned over the course of the week. Following presentations we will all gather for Communion with our campers to end the night. It has been such a blessing to see them create friendships and grow in their relationship with Christ through singing and MIR time as well as in their Bible study groups. Currently they are about to participate in some service time around the camp grounds before wowing us with their presentations in the Chapel. We are looking forward to another great day tomorrow but will be sad to see our campers go!
Our Day Campers had a fantastic day as well! They were able to have some pool time and play some fun parachute games together as well! They also were able to participate in their daily Bible study together too. Today they were also able to venture to the barn we have at camp to pet our horses! We are excited to see them tomorrow for their last full day with us!
Our campers have had another great day today! We had a few venture off on a river trip and several stay on site to do things like horseback riding and trying out our new zipline! Our campers were also able to enjoy Bible Study this afternoon, along with some chapel time with our minister in residence. Tonight they will all be continuing today's fun with some group dancing in the chapel and a campfire and S'Mores to follow before they head off to bed tonight! We are only half way through the week and we have already seen so many friendships form. We are excited for the rest of the week and all that is in store for our awesome campers!
Our Day Camp had another great day as well! They traveled to cloud land canyon to do a little hiking and exploring of God's creations on this beautiful day! They also were abler to cool off from the heat with some much needed pool time after all their adventures. Group games were also a big part of their day today and fun was had by all. We cannot wait for them to be back with us again tomorrow and the rest of the week!
Our first full day of activities here at camp this week was so much fun!! We had campers participating in caving, kayaking, crafts and several other activities of their choosing; a great time was had by all! Tonight all of our campers will be participating in relay night with their Bible study groups. Following a night of fun team games they will all get to enjoy some nice cold ice cream to end this hot day! We are looking forward to another great day tomorrow full of more adventures. We cannot wait to see more friendships form between our campers as they bond with one another and grow in their relationships with Christ.

We are so excited to have our 5th and 6th grade campers with us this week! They have had a great first day filled with group activities, pool time, a picnic with their Bible study groups, and were able to pick out all their activities for the week.

We have had a wonderful Monday and are excited to see what other fun and memories the rest of the week will bring with our campers!
We have had such an amazing week with all of our campers!! Our staff is grateful for the time they were able to spend with each camper this week, and we hope they have made some great Summer memories to cherish for a long time! From river trips, to caving trips, campfires, slip and slides, and group activities we have all had such a fun week. Watching all the campers grow closer to one another and to Christ has truly been a blessing through out the entire week. We hope all of our campers will remember what they learned at camp to use when they are at home. The staff wishes everyone a great rest of the Summer and we hope to see some familiar faces back next summer!!
As this week with our Junior High campers comes to a close, we are excited to see all the new friendships they have made and how they have grown as individuals. Tonight, they will be participating in a communion service together, as well as a celebration afterwards. The staff is looking forward to seeing how God works through them tonight as they worship together. Our campers also completed their last full day of activities today. Our kayak campers had an awesome river trip, and our horseback riders went on a trail ride! Tonight will also entail presentations from each Bible study group, which we are all excited to see; our various groups are preparing together right now. We are looking forward to everything that is planned tonight and are excited to see what the campers have learned!
Our Day Campers did some fun activities of their own today. They explored the creek with our half-week campers and were able to splash around in the cool water on this hot day! They also participated in some Bible study today and some fun group dancing. We are looking forward to having them back with us in the morning for their last full day of adventures and time spend with friends.
Our campers had another action packed and fun filled day today! They participated in morning and afternoon activities and some were even able to go off site for a river trip all day. This evening our campers had the chance to participate in "Team Night" with their Bible study groups, followed by private Bible study time and worship in the chapel. Watching all the campers work together this evening in their activities and enjoy each others company was amazing to see. We can all see that some new friendships have already formed and we are looking forward to seeing each camper strengthen their relationship with Christ as well as the week comes to a close. Now it is time for our campers to get some rest for our last full day of activities tomorrow; we are so excited to see what they accomplish!
Today our day camp adventure kids were able to explore Cloudland Canyon with their counselors and new friends. They also enjoyed a picnic lunch together. Tomorrow they will be exploring nature and God's creation even more with a creek walk here at camp. We are looking forward to seeing what other adventures they get into these last two days of camp!
Our first full day of activities with our campers was a great one! While some chose to try out the new zipline others took to the water for Kayaking and some lake paddling. We also had groups enjoy some caving as well as taking on the high ropes course and climbing wall. This evening our campers participated in some group dancing and are now settled into their Bible Study groups for some reflection and scripture before chapel time begins! Our campers will also be able to enjoy some coke floats tonight- perfect for the hot weather we had today. We can already see our campers starting to break out of their comfort zones and make new friends and we cannot wait to see how they all grow through out the rest of the week!
We all had a great day yesterday welcoming all our Junior High campers. They were able to get to know their Bible study groups with some group games, as well as a picnic lunch together.
