Today our theme was service, and each family group was given a service project to do around camp. Assignments ranged from cleaning Second Peninsula to building new fire circles. It was really cool to walk around camp and find campers having fun while learning the value in giving back. Our Bible Study also focused on the importance of serving others, and our morning worship service allowed campers to reflect on the importance of services as a part of faith.
After a day of hard work, campers were given a chance to get fancy at our “Elegant Dinner.” Non-Counselors started preparing the meal at 1:30, and by dinner at seven our dining hall had been transformed into a high-class eatery. Campers dressed in their finest and were waited on by staff who became servers for the evening. We loved getting to see kids try new foods and have a chance to relax, and from all the laughter and “compliments to the chef” I heard, the kids really enjoyed the dinner too.
Tomorrow, campers will have another choice day where they’ll try our different activities we don’t usually offer.
