Pine Cove welcomed Week 4 and Overflow B this past Sunday! Campers met their counselors, went to swim check, and settled in before heading to dinner. Our staff grilled burgers on the waterfront where cabins grouped together to eat and relax at picnic tables. The theme for the night was Mascot Mania! Each cluster played games and cheered on their counselors who competed throughout the night.
Monday was the first full day of camp! Campers started the day off strongly with quiet time and a bible study with their cabin. Our Bible Study theme for this summer is “FAITHWORKS,” which dives into the book of James, tackling a chapter a day. When studying each of the chapters, we focus on the importance of remaining steadfast in trials, asking for wisdom, and experiencing the power of prayer. Campers are learning how to live out their faith through action, and to not only hear the truth, but to strive to be refined and complete in Christ.
That night, Overflow was surprised with their favorite sonic drinks in the Kav, bonding and playing games like “junglepong”! Week 4 campers participated in the theme night, completing a series of tasks and competing against other cabins where Carrizozo 4 came out on top as the Ultimate Shorvivor! On Wednesday, guy and girl campers split up to work out and do yoga respectively. Everyone bonded over breakfast at their cabins before heading to activity classes. Later that night, Timbers joined us for some worship at Club! The theme night was “Glow Crazy” where Campers and staff both got to go crazy dancing to classic camp songs like “Chainsaw” and “Wobble!” Overflow took a trip to iJump Trampoline Park and had a great time bouncing on the ninja course as well as hanging out on the trampolines.
Camp is excited for the rest of the week as we continue to expound on what James has to teach to us! We hope that the studying of scripture in a camp environment will encourage and teach campers how to do it on their own and with a community back home!
