Day Camp 2013 Recap

God’s Kingdom Rocks!

What a fantastic week we had last week during our 2013 Day Camp!  Here is a little bit of a run down of the exciting week that our campers experienced:

  • Day 1 Bible Point – God’s love helps us stand strong
  • Day 2 Bible Point – Family and friends help us stand strong
  • Day 3 Bible Point – Prayer helps us stand strong
  • Day 4 Bible Point – Trusting God helps us stand strong
  • Day 5 Bible Point – The Bible helps us stand strong

What fantastic truths to be teaching our children, and to remember ourselves!  We had 49 campers and 10 preschoolers who learned these truths throughout the week as they traveled through various “stations” – Epic Bible Adventures, Imagination Station, Royal Theater and Missions…just to name a few.  The children looked out for God Sightings throughout the week – how God is at work in the world around them.  I know God was present on Monday and Tuesday afternoon, as He cleared away the rain so our campers could enjoy our exciting field trips!

Our campers learned all about the upcoming mission trip that our ACC mission team is taking to Honduras.  They were able to get involved in the mission trip by making 465 Gospel Bracelets that will be brought with our missions team as they travel to Honduras as the end of the month.  Faith in action!

The week ended with a performance by Sir Randall and a very well attended family picnic for volunteers, campers and their families.  The children participated in the closing program, and were able to tell their parents about what they learned during the week, and perform a few songs.  A wonderful highlight video was shown – if you missed it, take a look at the attachment.

I want to take this opportunity to thank all of the wonderful dedicated volunteers that made this week such a resounding success.  We had 43 volunteers on-sight throughout the week, as well as several who worked behind the scenes in set design, tech, graphics and administration…..not to mention those who donated items that were used throughout the week.  A very special shout out to Christine Dunkle, who was our day camp director this year.  Christine did a fabulous job heading up the week.  If you see her, give her a big fist bump for a job well done.
