Morning Fun & Campfire Cookout

It's been a very fun morning full of fun & games, songs & dancing, crafts, climbing walls, & GaGa! It's been busy! We're just getting ready to head down to the beach for a campfire cookout. After lunch we'll have a short break to decompress and relax before getting back into more fun activities. After that, we'll start to prepare for the arrival of the parents!


Tonight's time at Vesper Hill began with singing the songs Come, Now is the Time to Worship; Jesus Loves Me and Amazing Grace (My Chains are Gone). We ask that you all be in prayer for campers as they heard from our spiritual director, Susan, about how much God loves them and how He sent His Son, Jesus to die on the cross for us. This was a special night at Vesper Hill as campers were given an opportunity to come and pray to ask Jesus to be their forever friend. We closed with singing This Little Light of Mine.
