Terry started the day off with enthusiasm and faith. Campers opened up to meeting new peers and trusting one another.
We began the morning off with blessing, a hearty breakfast, laughs, and quality time with cabin groups. Branching off has been our objective for the day and we are off to a great start.
Veering from the cabins and New Pavilion, we ventured daringly into the woods. Each counselor paired off with a small group of campers, only to be led blindly (counselors eyes closed.. scary!) through the brush and trees to a open field of outdoor obstacles where we shared our first adventure!
Working as a team, campers and counselors competed as a whole to balance on an enormous wooden see-saw. (pictures will be posted tonight after bedtime) as quickly as possible without tipping to either side. This demonstrated teamwork and cooperation with one another.
Heading back to the dining hall, we had a delicious pizza buffet, all leaving stuffed and ready for a nap.
The campers are now enjoying a restful cabin quiet time to re-energize for today’s remaining activities.
As counselors and staff, our objective for the day is to show the love of Christ with each other. A smile, a pat on the back, a WOOHOO, a “that a boy/girl!” This means something to someone when they are given with love.
God has truly been working through each and every one of the campers and staff in that we are all truly coming together as a group and learning to do God’s work and find our special gift.
