The Incredible Journey – The Beginning

Uncategorized

Written by:

We here at DaySpring Summer Camp are proud to announce our theme for the upcoming weeks โ€“ The Hobbit! We, like Bilbo, are going to learn more about the journeys that others have taken before us, and we hope that this will give us some insight and reassurance into our own personal journeys and how they might connect with others.

We are so happy to have 23 wonderful, happy, healthy, enthusiastic high school campers here with us! We kicked things off with our โ€˜mustacheโ€™ rules (see the previous post for pictures..) and dinner. Then we started off our journey with a blind obstacle course. Here we learned that while many voices may call out to us and try to tell us where to head, there is only one true voice that we should be listening to.

The obstacle course!

Many voices surrounded one camper...who do you listen to?
