Campers arrived on Thursday afternoon and start setting up the tables for the evening meal.
How do these tables work?
Notebooks ready they listened to talks
David Corbin’s topic was “Decisions have Consequences”. He used four characters from the Old Testament to help us hold a mirror to ourselves with regard to our decision making process.
Meals in the open air
Time to relax
There was something for everyone. Whether you wanted to sit and visit with friends that you only see a few times a year, frolic in the ocean, toss around a ball or play a game of football, there was the opportunity.
Time to serve
Everyone also had the opportunity to serve. There were four teams who rotated chores from setting up and serving meals to cleaning the bathrooms
The dorms were spotless
Shoes and more shoes
The youngest campers built a tabernacle in the wilderness
On the last day we all heard about the furniture and structure of the Tabernacle and some were even able to crawl inside for a better look. None of us will forget the lessons taught by these young campers.
“David a Mirror of our Lord’s Sacrifice”
The young people created a skit of David and Goliath that reinforced the lesson learned that afternoon
Sunday is a long day. As with every morning at camp the students “Rise and Shine” at 6am. Task masters lead them in exercises for a half hour. They assemble at 7:30 for morning devotions before breakfast. This is followed by a Breaking of Bread service and lunch. There seems to be a lot of ‘free time’, but it is filled with activities. While the young people get ready in their best finery the adults create the ambience.
Preparation for the Formal Dinner begins in the middle of the afternoon and includes setting up the sound system which provides background music and readying the tables. The young people have an opportunity to practice their best manners and conversation skills.
