What a wonderful first full day of Senior High Week! Today began with the Polar Dip, as always; campers and staff took a refreshing dip in a foggy Cedar Lake to begin their day. Then, we enjoyed a pancake breakfast and got ready for the rest of the day.
Our day was made special by a beautiful butterfly who decided to hang out with us and join all of our Camp adventures. Greg the butterfly went to the zipline, the waterfront, and he hung out at all the games today. He had a great day and made a lot of friends.
After campers had time to spend alone with God to read their Bibles and pray, we had our Clinics and Seminars. Senior High week is a great opportunity for the staff to go more in depth with what is taught during these classes, and we love that the campers are not afraid to ask hard questions.
Once our morning free time and optional morning game were done, we had morning chapel together. Today, we heard from a missions team called Royal Servants about some opportunities that are available to high schoolers who feel called to missions and want to travel the world. It was cool to hear about it from Devon Harris, a full-time missionary!
Chapel was followed by lunch, mail call, and FREE TIME! During Senior High Camp, free time is relaxed and a chance to spend time with friends and build relationships. Today, Free Time featured swimming, crafts, a round of Two Rooms and a Boom (a fun strategy game), and rides down the Screamin’ Eagle Zipline!
After Free Time, we had dinner. Dinner was luau themed tonight; we had crab and mango salad, Hawaiian meatballs, key lime rice, fruit, Jerk chicken, and key lime cheesecake. Everything was incredible, and we enjoyed fun music and costumes as well!
Dinner was followed by Team Time, where the cabin teams had a chance to hang out and plan their video projects that they’re working on. Then we had Canteen time and got ready for evening chapel. Tonight in chapel, Nate Miller talked about how even when we feel like we’re not worth being on God’s team, we are still wanted. He focused on the story of the prodigal son in Luke.
We are wrapping up our day with a game called “Escape the Night Security,” where campers are running all around Camp for a scavenger hunt in the dark. This game is intense!
We are thankful for a great day of Senior High Camp, and we are so excited for more fun tomorrow.
