I have said before that church camp is one of my favorite things. It is a hot, sweaty week full of worship, greasy food, and a very distinct mixture of bug spray and sunscreen. This past week we took 19 children and 6 adults to Linden for Journey Kids Camp 2017. The theme this year was “Reach for Adventure! – Knowing and Serving Jesus Well.” The kiddos learned that the journey to being Christlike calls for us to train and hone our skills as a disciple and to constantly be seeking to get closer to Jesus. They also spent time enjoying God’s creation on hikes and were able to participate in art, sports, and even catch a fish or two. I went with them as a counselor, as well as 5 other amazing volunteers who sacrificed their time, sleep, and energy to be there. We had a wonderful time together as a church group, and with the Lord as well. Thank you to each of my volunteers, parents, and scholarship donors for making camp possible for our kids!
