After dinner we had our scavenger hunt which was led by our awesome Junior Counselors! Each Ohana group had to follow the clues which led them around DaySpring. Once they collected all of their clues, they were sent back to the New Pavilion to put together a scramble of letters to decode the secret words which were “TO SERVE.”

We took a spiritual gifts assessment in the morning part of programming, so in the evening, some of the staff shared about their spiritual gifts and how they have been able to use them in their lives.

We began work on our prayer loom tonight, the first strings we put on matched the color assigned to our spiritual gift. The counselors also decided that they wanted to show themselves as servant leaders so they washed the feet of the campers in their Ohanas.

    Wow! As always, Dayspring Camp Crew, you have outdone yourselves! What an amazing time everyone looks to be having. Those smiles are priceless. It is always such a gift to see what our beloved children are doing this week so we really appreciate the time and effort it takes you to document all of the adventures, especially when time is such a rare commodity! Thank you very much to each of you for giving of your time and yourselves to make such magical memories.
