We are so happy that we got to welcome our Super Kids 4 campers today!
Campers checked into their cabins this afternoon and met their counselors. During the rest of check in time, campers had the option to take their swim test while we waited for the rest of the campers to arrive.
Then, we all gathered at the Amphitheater for campers to meet the non-counseling staff and learn who their cabin friend for the week is. Cabin friends are non-counseling staff members who hang out with a cabin for the week to help the counselor and get to know the campers. After introductions, a few staff members demonstrated how to properly lower our country’s flag. Campers were then dismissed for dinner. Tonight, cabins chose somewhere outside to eat dinner as a picnic!
Following dinner, we went inside and learned the camp rules.
After rules, counselors took their cabins on a tour of camp before chapel. In tonight’s chapel, campers were introduced to our speaker for the week, Don Mackay. He shared stories of his missions work and talked about how “in battle” we need our sword and that our sword is the Bible.
Then, campers had free time while staff members set up the Variety Show. Campers got to enjoy a handful of goofy skits put on by staff members to bring our first night to a fun close.
Take Camp Home: Ask your camper what their favorite skit was!
Now, campers are going back to their cabins to get ready for bed and have night time devotions before lights out.
