Camp 2009! :) Wahoo!!

My sisters and I had the opportunity of attending the Bible Presbyterian Church annual summer camp in Ocala at Camp Sonlight. It was June 29th-July 4th. Campers had the option to memorize Romans 13 and Ps 119:33-48 to get 50% off the price, or familiarize themselves with it in preparation for the teachings. Surrounded by three teaching sessions a day were games, pool time, study time, and meals. The teaching sessions are so rich with God's word.
There were four teams, Red, Yellow, Blue, & Green with at least 14 kids on each. There are team captains, who are young men, they are number ones, then number twos are young men to, and number threes are girls, then the next a girl, etc. Teams get points from quiz time and games. Daily study time is provided to reflect on the teachings and preparation quiz time.

We had so much fun and learned a lot! God blessed that week a lot! I hope you enjoy! :)


Lydia, Sheph, & me! ON our way!

There is a really fun game called tennis baseball.

Every Friday night the counselors make a great big campfire. Everyone sits around it and tells important things they learned during camp this year. Some shared from past years as well.
