Day Camp 2017 – Wednesday

By Stuart G on June 14, 2017

Let’s join Max, a 3rd grader, who has returned to “Friendship National Park” for another day of adventures: this time to “Tadpole and Caterpillar Marsh!”

First, Max saw all of his new friends again in his classroom, “Squirrel Hollow.” He learned about teamwork with his fellow hikers, and has continued memorizing verses from the Bible like Nehemiah 9:17 and John 3:16 about God’s grace, compassion, and forgiveness–and he did a very good job! During today’s opening program, he sang and danced to a new song, “The Big Oak Tree.” He saw characters like Mario, Luigi, Bowser, and Princess Peach learning how to be good friends by forgiving each other. He even got to see how Jesus is our best friend because he makes it possible to receive God’s forgiveness and have a relationship with Him. He designed a glass frame with eye-dazzling colors for his craft, and played water games where everyone got soaked. Fortunately, Max was able to wind down in Squirrel Hollow with his friends afterwards because he was so tired from all the exciting activities. When his mom came to pick him up, he said, “I can’t wait until we go to ‘Mirror Lake’ tomorrow!”

Day Camp 2017 – Tuesday

By Stuart G on June 14, 2017

Welcome to Day Camp 2017!  Let’s join 2nd grader Lucy on her first day at Friendship National Park:

Lucy was greeted with the smiling faces of counselors, teachers, and fellow hikers. Upon entering her classroom, the “Beaver Lodge,” she began to learn her Bible verse for the week: to love God with her whole being and to love her neighbor as herself (Mark 12:30-31). She soon joined all of her fellow hikers at “King’s Mountain” where she sang songs like “The Jesus Chant” and “Good Good Father.”  Lucy learned how God is the best friend she could ever have, and how she could be a good friend by showing love to others! After hiking back down King’s Mountain, she was not only able to hear stories of God’s love with hikers in her grade, but also played games like “zombie cow tag.” After a refreshing snack time, she joined her fellow hikers in decorating tie-dyed t-shirts, and returned to the Beaver Lodge where she did more fun activities with her friends. She can’t wait to come back tomorrow and visit “Tadpole and Caterpillar Marsh”!
