We’re up to the line just before dinner, bringing about the final set of activities for the day. Each day of camp is such a full day. At this point, Teen Camp feels like it’s been going on for a life time, but in a good way, I promise!
Whether camp is described as “a day at camp is like 2 weeks in the real world,” or “stepping into camp is like walking through the wardrobe and into Narnia,” – time passes differently at camp. So many activities, events, interactions. It’s hard to remember if something took place earlier in the day or a couple days ago.
Today, the campers walked to and from breakfast, did a Bible study on Mark with their tribes, had their 2 activities in the morning, choosing from soccer, basketball, Nukem (a version of volleyball that’s all catches and throws), Gaga Ball, ASL, sharing your faith, what is my testimony and mad science. We went to lunch, a meal of quesadillas, tomato soup and salad. A few more of the staff shared with the campers about what God has been doing in their life. We heard our cabin inspection report. From there, to the pool and game room, then some chill time, followed by an all-camp game of Capture the Degel, and some other field games. And on to Tabernacle.
Coming tonight, our annual Teen Camp Decathalon – a series of 10 events wackier and more outlandish than the last. The day will close with a campfire that’s discussion oriented. Last night, we talked about community. What makes up a community? Why is it important to be in a community? What is different between our believing and unbelieving communities? etc. It was a good discussion and I’m looking forward to ours tonight.
That is all for now.
