What a beautiful and eventful day it was at camp! The sun was shining and the clouds cast enough shadows to keep camp cool. In Bible Study we learned what sin is (Self Indulgent Nature).
At Jump Start Papa Bear taught us that choices have consequences and that our attitude is contagious and a predictor of our behavior which is why we should have an attitude of gratitude.
Day Camp had a Superhero party where they learned how to be superheroes and went through basic training. They had to melt their sidekicks who were frozen in ice and master the art of disguise.
In Bear Comp, all tribes played their hearts out and exuded tribe spirit. Spartan Ball and Arena Soccer are some of our new Bear Comp games this summer. Everyone had a blast! Then it was off to Specialties!
The photography lesson today was still life. They learned how to take photos of still objects before moving on to action photos. Speed and Agility ran ladders and Disk Sports practiced their throws.
For Activity rotation it was quite the competition when the campers were introduced to Archery Tag, don’t worry it is as fun as it sounds. Girl’s Camp swam and kayaked in the river while Boy’s Camp had swim time at the pool where they had a blast wrestling, throwing balls, and jumping off the diving board.
After shower time we got ready to join the DCC Justice League. With capes and masks donned, campers poured on to the patio for a spaghetti dinner! After dinner each cabin received our list of tasks to prepare us all to be super heroes. When everyone completed their training we danced the night away in the Barn Swing…or at least until Team Meeting.
Papa Bear delved deeper into the meaning of sin tonight at Team Meeting. He emphasized the word “indulgence”. When we sin, we indulge ourselves in wrong decisions. It’s like we stuck our hands in black paint and every time we sinned or encouraged a friend to sin, the black paint spread. We indulged our hands in that black paint. But there is hope. There is one person that can clean us of that black paint – of our sins. We will find out who that is and how he does that tomorrow.
