WE ARE READY TO BE TOGETHER!
This year we have chosen the theme ‘TO BE TOGETHER’ for summer camps. The first week of June, we had a very busy and productive training camp. We did various things, both strenuous and less so, to prepare together for the new camp season of 2022!
On the first day of training camp, our most experienced leaders led the others in team building activities. These were physically challenging, strategically rich, cohesive and trust-building tasks. Pastor Trevor Waybright was this year’s special guest speaker. He gave inspiring talks and personal encouragement to everyone. Together, we discussed the most important things for the upcoming camps. As we worked on the various activities planned for the camps, we listened to each other’s ideas and thought about how together we could best make them work. Together we also, cleaned the buildings and prepared the grounds for campers.
This week was full of adventure and challenges, we all understood that there will not be any ‘weak spots’ in the camps if we all work together and if love reigns within and between us.
Our 2022 camp season begins on Tuesday! Thank you for your support and we would appreciate your prayers for the campers who will be coming to the camps, as well as for the leaders who will be serving this summer!
SUMMER IS COMING!
Last Saturday at Eagle’s Wings, we got together as the summer team to prepare for the big event – summer camps! We talked about the types of leaders needed; what we can each lead, do, and take responsibility for, both during the camp preparation process and during the camps themselves. We also spent time thinking about the camp’s day plan, the activities we definitely want this year and the challenges we should expect.
Saturday was a fun time when the young people who will be in the summer camps as leaders could gather together and dream of summer. We are grateful and happy that we have such wonderful young people who are willing to serve and be involved in everything needed for a successful camp season.
We are fast approaching the summer camp marathon and would appreciate your prayers for our team and campers!
