TODAY WAS THE FIRST DAY OF DAY CAMP!!!!!!! We are so excited to welcome new campers into the Deer Creek family!
The morning was a bit misty! It started raining a little bit during Bible Study so we had Jump Start in the Deer Dome. At Jump Start, Papa Bear taught us that choices have consequences and that attitude is contagious. Our Day Campers were initiated into Bear Tribes and thus began Bear Competition! We played Bear Brawl, O-Ball, Human Tic-Tac-Toe and Day camp played Kickball. After Bear Comp. we separated into specialties. The Outdoor Wilderness group learned how to tie Bowline knots and the Dance girls learned the first part of the dance they will perform at Team Meeting on Friday. For lunch Alma cooked up some mashed potatoes with corn dogs and salads. After campers received their mail, they headed back to their cabin for some well deserved FOB.
Day Campers raced on the Pedal Carts, swung on the Barn Swing, fed Maverick the Deer, played Arena Soccer, had Bible Study, and cooled off in the pool! It was a day full of fun and excitement!
For Sugar Shack we had Ice Cream sandwiches and there were a couple of dance offs that ensued. Next it was off to Activities! After Activities we cooled off in the river. Some campers floated on tubes while others kayaked and canoed. Before dinner we retired the colors and sang our national anthem. We enjoyed a delicious meal of King Ranch Chicken. J-Camp then broke for showers while S-Camp played Arena Soccer against the counselors.
We sang our praises loud during Team Meeting. Papa Bear closed us out for the evening with reassurance that Jesus does not judge us, but loves us for our hearts and wants a relationship with us.
We are excited to see what the Lord has in store for us tomorrow!
