Today was another great day here at camp to play lots of games and learn about God!
In last night’s chapel, Darla continued her message about faith. She told the campers that faith is personal and requires a decision, and she shared the message of salvation. She talked about how we were made to have a relationship with God, but sin separated us from Him, so He had to send Jesus to pay the price for our sins in order to restore the relationship. At the end of chapel, campers had the opportunity to pray to accept Jesus as their savior.
This morning, campers had polar dip, flag raising, breakfast, and then morning chapel. In today’s morning chapel, campers heard a telling of the Parable of the Good Samaritan (found in Luke 10:25-37). Then, they went back to their cabins to discuss the story as a group.
Then, campers had some free time before going on their Cabin Adventures!
After Cabin Adventure, it was time for lunch, and then it was “Story Time with Tori!” Tori had another Mad Libs story for the campers to fill out following the journey of the characters we met yesterday.
Take Camp Home: Ask your camper what the Mad Libs stories were about!
Then, it was Toes up Time to give campers some much needed rest. Once all the campers were up, they learned about the Staff Hunt! Staff members hid around camp, and the campers were released to go find them. If they found a staff member, they got points for their cabin, and they got to push that staff member in the lake!
After all the staff members had been pushed in the lake, it was free time for campers to go swimming, ziplining, play laser tag, do crafts, or other games around camp!
Following free time, we lowered the flag before dinner. After dinner was cleaned up, campers go to go to the “Ye Olde Renaissance Faire!” There were games set up for campers to win tickets. They could save their tickets for cabin points, or they could use some of their tickets to spray their counselor, or another staff member, with the hose!
Take Camp Home: Ask your camper what games they played at the Faire. What one was their favorite?
Now, campers have some free time before evening chapel starts. After chapel, there is cabin devotions and then lights out.
