We love camp because it gets kids out of their everyday environment and routine. It is so much fun to give kids and adult leaders the chance to do things that they wouldn’t normally do.
Things you can only do at camp include. . .
- CHOICES: what will I wear? what will I buy at the camp store? what tracks will I choose? what will I eat for dinner? how many scoops of ice cream sounds good tonight?
- Play OMC with my color team
- Purchase CK swag: buffs, peach plushes, CentriKid splat balls
- Talk one on one with a staffer!
- Meet kids from other churches
- Participate in the color competition
- Give out 500+ high fives in a week
- Dance in a Monkey Shuffle Flash Mob
- Celebrate your birthday with hundreds of people
- Check mail from your parents, grandparents, etc
- Compete on stage for party games
- Eat Sno Cones daily
- Worship with hundreds of people representing lots of different churches
- Participate in a week long sleep over with your best friends
This list could go on and on. . . and it should because camp is unique. However, as we talk about FIT: Faith in Training we are focusing on what we do in response to God. Unfortunately some of the unique activities we do at camp should be a part of our daily lives. Consider these things and challenge your kids you bring to camp to make sure they do these things in their daily lives too
Thing you do at camp, but should be doing all the time include…
- Time alone with God
- Fellowship with believers
- Studying scripture and applying it to our lives
- Encouraging believers
- Praying and giving to mission projects
