Believe it or not, we’re in our final 24 hours of our last kids session of the summer… which means it’s time for our last daily update!
We started our Tuesday with the usual polar dip/flag raising/breakfast line-up before going into skills time. We had a good time learning new things like how to read a compass, proper canoeing technique, and the importance of working together as a team!
Skills time was split up by morning chapel, where Nate talked to us about the importance of trusting God. He told us the story of a blind man who was healed by Jesus and how he didn’t have everything figured out but trusted Jesus.
After our second skills session, we had lunch, took a short break for nap time, and saw another installment of the Adventures of Captain Kyper. On Tuesday, she and M4 showed a mean king the error of his ways and taught him kindness!
To kick off free time, we split up into boys and girls to play two big games. The boys played Custer’s Last Stand, a silly camp tradition where guys on staff face off against the boy campers for a tag/dodgeball mash-up, and the girls played The Amazing Space Race, where they ran between many stations as a cabin and tried to finish all the activities first.
During free time, we played carpet ball and nine square, went swimming and boating, and had lots of fun doing tie-dye! Some big dark clouds rolled in near the end of free time and it started to rain, but that didn’t stop us. Luckily, the weather cleared up beautifully for our carnival on The Hub!
In chapel, Nate focused on John 11. He told us the story of how Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead and talked about how people who believe in Jesus and trust Him will still physically die, but will have eternal life in Heaven. We also opened up the opportunity for campers to accept Jesus as their Savior!
It’s been a great week. Please, please keep praying for us on our last day of camp for safety, spiritual growth and the funnest fun!
