Welcome to our third day of Day Camp 2017, “Friendship National Park”! This time, let’s see today’s activities through the eyes of Lindsey, a kindergartner.
“Do you remember your verse for today, Lindsey?” She replies, word perfect, with John 3:16: “For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should have eternal life.” So starts Lindsey’s day in her classroom, the “Raccoon Lodge.” In reality, this whole week has reflected that truth! Speaking of reflections, during today’s opening session, “Mirror Lake,” Lindsey learned how she was lovingly created by God, and has a special purpose for her life. She learned that her image is uniquely reflected back to her when she looks in a lake, like a mirror. She laughed when saw a S’more arguing with itself–how silly! The chocolate, graham cracker, and marshmallow are all needed for a delicious treat! And so are all God’s children uniquely made in his image, able to help others in all kinds of special ways. After craft time, games, and snacks, she recited John 3:16 once more to her teacher before she left. She loves that verse and can’t wait to come back tomorrow. It’s hard to believe that there’s only one more day left–we hope that it’s amazing!
