The time to register for WWW has begun. We hope that it is on your calendars and that campers are already pestering their parents to register early (and often!). Here is the link for registration in case you’ve lost it. We hope that you enjoy these looks back at summer 2013, we can’t wait for summer 2014!
We’ve been posting this past summer’s Gilgal Gazette articles in small installments…but we have news! The entire thing is up and ready to read. East and West Coast! Junior and Teen Camp! Check it out here:
Campfire by Mariya
I really like camp fire. During camp fire we worship God and learn lessons about Him. It’s great because while we sing, we show motions that go with the songs. Then we pray. My favorite camp fire song is “Baby Whale.” It’s fun to sing that song because there are a lot of motions to it. After the songs one of the staff share a devotion from the Bible with us. One of the camp fire talks was by Long Shanks. It was about the armor of God. Ephesians 6:11 says “put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.” I liked it because it helps me to know that God is protecting me and tells me how to stand strong in him.
How To Be by Keane
“How To Be” is a very exciting activity. It teaches you how to be anything that you can imagine. We played games relating to being other things. We had a lot of fun pretending to be Bible Characters, mythical creatures, cartoon characters, etc. In the activity we played a lot of improv games.
One of these games was called “Party.” In this game the person who is “It” pretends to host a party and people begin to join their party acting out specific characters. The person hosting the party has to guess who their guests are or what they are trying to be. The party continues until the host is able to identify what their guests are doing and then those guests are counted as “out.” When we played I really enjoyed this game. In the first round Scooter was the party host and I was a bagworm. Other guests at the party were “Larry the Cucumber,” Little Red Riding Hood, Dora the Explorer, and many others. It was very exciting and I know I had a great time using my imagination and I think everyone else did too.
