New Things in a New Stage of Life

“See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” (Isaiah 43:19) And finally, we have arrived at Adventure Camp! Summer has been wonderfully great. Seeing God move through Explorer Camp and Discovery Camp excites me for the new things that He will do in Adventure Camp. Our campers are older compared to the last two sessions, so the dynamics have changed a bit, but that God will move has not. These campers are in a new stage in their lives. They are beginning the “teen years” where life and how we...

God as Creator – Discovery Week 2

Explorer Camp 2017 –

Posted on Jul 6, 2017 in Camp Blog, Searchable

My oh my! How wonderful this week will be! This past Sunday was the start of our 2017 Summer Explorer Camp and I think all of the staff and campers can agree it started off on a high note! The staff have been tirelessly training, preparing, and praying for our incoming campers and we are just so glad that they are here now. The smiles and laughter of the campers keep us going. So far, we have heard of the many new things the campers have been trying (e.g. bike riding, swimming, sailing, archery, arts and crafts, etc.) and there is not one camper who is not happy (though some are still a tad...
