Dear First Time Camper:

We’re starting a new series over here in blogland. It is called “Dear First Time Camper.” Over the next couple of weeks you’ll be hearing from veteran Camp Gilgal Staff about some of their favorite things about camp and even some packing tips. You’ll also be introduced to some of the staff that will be part of Camp Gilgal East 2015!!! First up: Beardo! Beardo was first a Teen and Adventure Camper on the West Coast, but now he lives in New York City and is married to RedSox so you’ll get to meet him if you are at Camp Gilgal East Junior, Teen, or Adventure Camp 2015. If you’re interested in Camp Gilgal (or you know someone who is) make sure to check out! And now…Beardo:


Dear First Time Camper,
Welcome to our Camp Gilgal Family! We like to say “Once a Camp Gilgal Family Member, always a Camp Gilgal Family Member!” We’re so excited that you’re one of us now! We can’t wait to meet you!
Get ready, you’re going to have so much fun! You probably are curious about what camp is going to be like. Well, imagine this: you get to spend all day with kids like you doing things kids love to do! And best of all, you’ll get to know Yeshua (Jesus) better whether we’re playing games, singing songs, or learning about the Bible…it’s all about Yeshua!
Here are some things you’ll do: you’ll bunk in a cabin with other campers (so bring a sleeping bag & pillow, also a toothbrush and things you need to shower), we’ll be outside (so bring clothes to play outside, comfortable shoes, and a sweatshirt for when it is cold at night). You’ll do activities, learn some Hebrew (my favorite!) and read the Bible in community (so don’t forget your Bible!) There will be so many things to do that you won’t even remember why you needed phones, iPods, video games, or anything like that!
We hope that you’re getting excited! Camp is going to be so much fun! We can’t to meet you in person!
See ya soon,
