Kickoff for Adventurers 1!

The youngest group of campers we get this summer are here and we are beyond excited to get to know them and have lots of fun!

Campers got to meet their counselors as they moved into their cabins and went through the check-in process. Some campers took the opportunity to take their swim test today after they checked-in.

Once everyone was settled in, the campers were gathered at the Amphitheater to be introduced to the program staff and find out who their cabin friend is. Then, staff members acted as the “Color Guard” to show the campers how we do flag lowering every day and how to properly fold our country’s flag.

We then got to have a picnic dinner. The campers ate with their cabins and chose a spot outside to enjoy their meal and get to know one another.

After dinner, campers went inside to learn about the camp rules, and then we had worship and chapel time. Our very own Bobber Bill will be the chapel speaker this week. Today, he talked about how God is an all powerful, all knowing, all present, all loving, and all holy king. He also taught the campers 1 Timothy 1:17 and some actions to go with it.

Take Camp Home: Ask your camper if they remember the actions for 1 Timothy 1:17. Pick another verse for them to learn and come up with some actions together!

Campers were then had a little free time to get treats at the canteen and play things like Octoball, Nine-square, and draw with sidewalk chalk.

Afterwards, campers came back inside to watch a few skits put on by the staff. Hopefully, they got their giggles out so they will be ready for bed tonight!

Take Camp Home: Ask your camper what their favorite skit was! If they want, have them act it out for you!

Campers are having their cabin devotionals and then they will get some rest for their first full day tomorrow!

The Craft Room

One of the best places to hang out during a week of summer camp is the Camp Lebanon Craft Room!  Ever summer has classic crafts and exciting new ways to be creative, from making a friendship bracelet to painting a rock to making a colorful hat!

Every summer, our Craft Coordinator get to organize the Craft Room and make it their own.  They come up with new crafts to try out, but keep lots of the old classics on hand too!  Everyone can color, draw, and finger paint for FREE!  Instead of painting on paper, sometimes you can paint a rock – if you put a pair of googly eyes on it, it becomes a “Pet Rock!”  You can use your Canteen card to purchase your craft supplies for whatever other project you want to try!

One of the most popular crafts during the summer is making a Tie-Dye Shirt!  You can purchase a shirt from Camp, which has the Camp logo or some other fun design, or you can bring your own white piece of clothing (even socks!).

The Craft Room is open for the entire Free Time every day, and is usually full of creative people getting their hands dirty, making stuff.  Counselors and campers get to hang out, cool off, and have good conversations all while exercising their creative muscles or learning a new skill.  And our Craft Coordinator is always on hand to help if anyone has any questions or wants to try something particularly crazy!  The sky is the limit when your imagination and creativity are involved!
