One of the challenges that youth ministries face after a big summer event (camp, conference, retreat, etc) is the emotional letdown. We use phrases like “spiritual highs” and “mountaintop experiences” to describe the emotions and experiences from the event. Then, we come back to “real life” and have the challenge of putting into practice what was committed during the week. Josh Griffin, High School Pastor at Saddleback, posted this video on his blog. Kurt Johnston is the speaker and he does a good job of helping students work through the “after camp” experience.
This is good advice for both students and adult.
