Last week I had the privilege of leading a week of camp at Butler Springs. This was my 7th year of leading the basketball camp. We combined with a karate, science, cheer leading and Kids Cafe (cooking) camp to make one big week of nearly 200 people. The week was made up of about 140 junior high students plus the adult faculty. It was a super week.
One of the downers of the week were the number of injuries we had. We actually had two students go to the hospital, which was definitely not in the plans for the week. Other than a few hurt knees, wrists and elbows, the rest of us managed to survive the week pretty well.
One of the highlights of the week were the decisions that were made. We had seven students that came forward to be baptized; 6 of them we baptized in the camp pool before we left on Thursday and the other was to be baptized at home. We also had a student come forward to recommit herself to walk more closely with Jesus.
I have the great opportunity to work with some adults who love working with kids and they are some of my favorite people. Some of the faculty have been with me all 7 years I have led and a few of them pre-date me. It’s a great group of people.
We put together a highlight video of the week. Not a great video by production standards, but it does provide a peek into the week.
Thanks to all who were a part of it!
