The whole Gilgal Gazette (East, Midwest, and West) will be live online later this fall, but we’ll be sharing pieces from the Camp Gilgal East Gazette here each week. The Gilgal Gazette is a newspaper written by Camp Gilgal campers, for Camp Gilgal campers. We hope that you enjoy it!
Penina S., Age 12, Tribe of Joseph (Junior Camp)
Tabernacle is a place where everyone gets together in the morning to worship and praise God. We sing songs, read stories, recite the memory verse and more. It takes place after breakfast but before your activities.
One day we got blowpops to represent the remnant of people left who believed in God. The gum was what we were supposed to leave. Some people ate their gum, others left it on their sticks and some people didn’t open theirs because they knew it would be too tempting.
In Tabernacle I learned that it is important to always trust God, no matter the circumstances.
Matthew S., Age 9, Tribe of Judah (Junior Camp)
On Monday of the second week of camp we packed for a camp-out after we packed we headed to our campsite. Since we didn’t have a fire place we went to Benjamin’s site. We made a fire and ate hot dogs and hamburgers. One hot dog rolled off the grill. Then Gavyn started chasing us with sticks. Then we noticed that there were fireworks on the other side of the valley. When we went back to our campsite we tried setting our tent up, but it kept falling down so we called Scooter and he came. He also tried but it fell again so we slept on the blacktop. I had camped a bunch before with my family – this wasn’t the best camping but it was the most fun! I hope you enjoyed my story.
