During the week of June 25-28, 228 kids and 130 volunteers flooded this campus. In an atmosphere of incredible joy and fun, the kids learned that Jesus is our Rescuer - that He rescues us when we're lonely, when we're worried, when we do wrong, when we're powerless and in our struggles. There were amazing songs, videos, games, crafts, skits, decorations and snacks, all designed to enhance the learning of these principles in an engaging environment. One of the favorite elements for the kids was the biblical teaching by "Where's Waldo" (aka Pastor Doug). Boy, did he rock those white Crocs!
The kids also learned the value of giving and raised funds for water filters for families in Guatemala. They were excited to bring money each day to help kids in another part of the world who don't have as much as they do. In all, they raised $1,250.10, enough for fifty families to have clean water!
Special thanks to all of those who helped to make this year's Kids Camp a fabulous success!
