Drumroll please….2016 Gazette Week 1!

After making you wait so long for the first looks at the 2016 Gilgal Gazette, we’ll be posting one junior and one teen article each week. Stay tuned for photos and updates from the camp team in NY! Thanks for your patience and Shanah Tovah!

Archery in CampHi my name is Matthew and in this article you will learn what you would learn in archery. Also you will
learn the rules that you learn in archery. The correct position for shooting is when your feet are in baseball stance. Your left hand is holding the bow if you’re a righty (other way around if you’re a lefty).The colored feather facing the outside of the bow, and the bow string must be able to reach your jaw.When you fire after aiming. I want to tell you the rules so you can stay safe. The rules in archery are,don’t pick up your bow until the counselors tell you to. Do not get your arrows until everyone is done shooting, and don’t shoot until told to. I like archery because you get to shoot arrows, also you can keep doing it and keep getting better at it. I like shooting arrows because sometimes I hit the target and it feels awesome. This year I shot one bullseye. I picked archery because I like to concentrate on things while having fun. Archery benefits hand eye coordination and I love that I get to do it at Camp Gilgal.

The campfire is a really cool and different part of camp. Most camps if they even include a camp fire have campfire songs, s’mores, and stories. Not only does Camp Gilgal’s campfire include these things,but they include life lessons taken away from scripture. At the beginning of camp I was pretty shy to share my ideas during Bible discussion, but as I enjoyed camp throughout the week and my faith grew closer to Yeshua it became easier to speak, answer questions and be active in prayer. Not only did I change but I saw others transform through the power of Yeshua. Something about the word changes people’s personalities, and shows their true colors. For example when Alex, a camper, would raise his hand to answer a discussion question he sounded educated and like a true son of God who loved Yeshua; something I didn’t quite expect on first glance—it was great to hear from him and great to get to know him. All together the campfire was something to really look forward to at the end of the day.It’s something that is unique to Camp Gilgal and is a really great aspect of camp, a camper like me can’t get anywhere else.
