Hey Mom and Dad,

Week three has been awesome! After you dropped your campers off on Sunday night, we grilled burgers by the lake and bonded with our cabins by playing some games around camp such as the water balloon slingshot launch, dodgeball, and Spikeball.

We all threw on our tackiest outfits Monday night and played a fun Willy Wonka themed scavenger hunt! The cabins were given a task to collect as much candy (balloons) as they could, without being caught by Mr. Wonka and his Oompa Loompas! 

Tuesday night, campers were stopped by the KGB in the game of Espionage. Campers tried to sneak their way up to Top Tizzy and trade in their microchip for a wristband, proving they were safe. But counselors hid throughout the trees with flashlights, stopping kids from reaching victory! Campers always lose!

Wednesday night, we got all decked out in neon and glow sticks for Blacklight Boogie! As classic camp songs like “Chainsaw” and “Kin Folk” played, campers and counselors got to show off their moves and danced the night away!

Tonight, we hopped on banana boats with our cabins and shredded some waves on Lake Palestine. After, we enjoyed a picnic-style dinner, tossed some frisbees, and had acoustic worship outside as we watched the sunset over the lake.

Our bible study this summer is titled, “Beacon.” Campers have been going through 1 John everyday with their counselors, learning what scripture says about walking in the light. A beacon serves two purposes: a directional guide and tool of protection. In 1 John, we see how Jesus lived as a light on Earth, leading others closer to the Lord and out of the darkness. Our prayer and hope for these campers is that they learn what it means to walk in the light and be a beacon in their communities going forward.

We are excited to see what the rest of the week holds, and can’t wait to see you Saturday, and for you to hear all your camper has learned this week. Please join us in praying for safety and fun this week, as well as the Lord to move through camp, making His presence known.
