End of The Week Video
Well. What can be said that hasn’t already been said? Plenty, ask your kid when they get home. No matter how many words or pictures I attempted to post to describe this fantastic week, none can compare to the individual memories each camper made. Fears overcame. Friends made. God glorified. Jesus exalted. Your camper will be missed!
The classic, pizza, breadsticks, and chocolate chip cookies!
Deli Subs, chips, carrots, applesauce, and the salad bar!
This morning we learned Jesus is our Savior!
Daily Bible Verse* *
Romans 5:1,5 Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.
On the menu for this morning it was biscuits n’ gravy, crispy cubes, and that breakfast bar!
We had many talents that were shown tonight! Riddles, card tricks, a lot of wonderful singing, and dancing!
Tonight we had beef and noodles, mash potatoes, corn, and brownies!
Our today lunch included a chicken sandwich, california blend and mac & cheese!
Hoopla### Discovery Time
Today campers learned that Jesus is our healer! They were told the story of the healing pool. Our Bible verse of the day comes from John 5:8-9 and it says Jesus told him, “Stand up, pick up your mat, and walk!” Instantly, the man was healed! He rolled up his sleeping mat and began walking!
A hike up to breakfast in the Dinning Hall with Freanch toast sticks, sausage links and hashbrown triangles on the menu!
Who Hunt### Dinner
Continuing with the ethnic theme of Mexican at lunch, we had an Italian at dinner. It was a flair of Sicily with lasagna rolls, breadsticks, salad bar, broccoli. Chocolate cake rounded out the dessert. I am thinking this one is more American, but hey it’s chocolate who is really gonna complain!
It is a Mexican lunch at the Dining Hall with soft tacos, nachos and cheese and spanish rice. And for dessert we have churros, Ole!
Now it is time for a siesta! (aka horizontal hour)
Breakfast was a crowd pleaser with scrambled eggs, hash browns and bacon!
Tonight we learned that Jesus is our friend. Our scripture was looking at the story of when Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead.
After Vespers, campers went back for some cabin devotionals to dig deep into the Bible with a passage from John 15:9-17.
Wacky Water Relays
So what was on the menu? Chicken drumsticks, mashed potatoes, and green beans!
Today it was corn dogs, carrots, and chips for lunch with a side of tunes from veggie tales to set the eating mood! After lunch it was back to cabins for a little rest and relaxation gearing up for the three afternoon rotations!
During Hoopla, campers decorated signs for their cabins to put by the beach!
Today a Beaver Boy over came his fear on the Mammoth Swing! With a little encouraging from his cabin friends, staff, and counselors he decided to go all the way to the top! When he got off he was smiling from ear to ear and said ” I was so high I could see God!”
Up for breakfast with smashed “birthday cakes”(pancakes), pig tubes (sausage) and fried ice(crispy potato cubes)!
Do you think the campers got enough sleep last night from their first night at camp? The overwhelming majority from campers was NO! But these campers were not sleepy anymore once they got to Morning Watch! They began with a big shout out to the lake to wake the neighbors and some silly camp songs!
For the evening meal the kitchen took a cow, made patties and grilled them to perfection! It of course included all the trimmings with lettuce and tomatoes for the “rabbits” in all of us! Topped with fries and corn, it was like a backyard BBQ! Many plates appeared to be clean, but with dirt pudding for dessert who can blame them!
Today’s the day! It’s a great day for your campers to make their way to camp and embark on a wonderful journey with us here at Camp Lakewood!
