Today was a nice cloudy day to cool off after how hot it was yesterday!
In last night’s chapel, Don talked about the power and importance of prayer. He shared a story of when he was working in the Philippines and two children went missing, and after sharing the incident on his Facebook page asking people to pray, they were eventually able to find them. We then looked at the story of Daniel in the Lion’s Den (found in Daniel 6) and talked about how we should pray regularly like Daniel in all circumstances.
This morning began with Polar Dip, flag raising, today’s memory verse (Colossians 3:13), breakfast, and then morning chapel. Today in morning chapel, campers heard the Parable of the Unforgiving Servant (found in Matthew 18:21-35).
Then, campers had free time until Cabin Adventures.
After Cabin Adventures, it was lunch time, and then we had “Story Time with Tori.” The campers got to fill out another Mad Lib story following the journey of the two characters from yesterday’s story.
Take Camp Home: Ask your camper what the Mad Lib stories were about!
Then, it was Toes up Time, and following Toes up Time, campers learned about today’s game, the staff hunt! Staff members hid all around camp, and campers were released to go find them. If they found a staff member, they got to push them in the lake!
Once the game was over, it was free time!
Take Camp Home: Ask your camper what their favorite free time activity was and why. Maybe it’s something you can do at home as a family!
After free time, we gathered for flag raising before dinner. Then, we had the “Ye Olde Renaissance Faire!” We had a variety of activities for campers to play to win or spend tickets. The tickets they kept go towards their cabin points for the week, but campers love to spend their tickets to spray their counselor with the hose!
Now, campers have some free time before evening chapel. After chapel, they will have cabin devo time and then go to bed.
