Explorer Camp 1 and Young Teen Camp 1

This week's camps are going well!  Our Explorer Camp speaker is Jerry Jacoby and our Young Teen Camp speaker is Ben Jewett.  Both sets of campers are learning and growing a lot during their daily chapel times and room devotions.

The days have started off cool, but have warmed up and been the perfect temperature.  From what we here, we're in for some pretty hot days on Wednesday and Thursday, so we're enjoying these cooler temps now!

Some of this week's activities for Young Teen Campers include the Slip 'n Slide, Gold Rush, Wet Hayride, Counselor of the Universe, Counselor Hunt, Human Foosball, Hayride & Bonfire, and their individual classes.  Young Teen Campers are also enjoying the zip line, horseback riding, swimming, the Trading Post and all of the other activities that come with camp.

Activities for the Explorer Campers include Slip 'n Slide, Hayride & Bonfire, Wet Hayride, Gold Rush, Water Rush, and Counselor Hunt. The Explorer Campers also get a shot at the zip line, horseback riding, etc.  They're all having a great time and we haven't had any homesickness at all this week!

Don't forget to keep an eye on our photos and our facebook updates!

Senior Teen Camp 2012

Senior Teen camp is in full swing!  We had a little bit of rain around lunchtime yesterday, but it didn't interfere with any of the day's activities.  We had a late night activity that is always our campers' favorite . . . COMMANDO!

Last night's session with our speaker, John Waldo, was all about discovering how God sees us.  So many of our campers recommitted their lives to Jesus and we're all rejoicing with them!  Continue to pray that God will move in the lives of these campers.

We'll be updating photos later today on our flickr page and we'll be posting periodic photos and updates on our facebook page.
