This sunny Sunday morning ticked by slowly as the excitement grew. Green clad staff cheered as mobs of parents arrived at Tall Timber with campers in tow ready to enjoy the fantastic week ahead. Everything started off with some rousing mixer games where all got to know one another through the joy of running, screaming, and untangling human knots. After some more individual cabin bonding and a delicious dinner the Junior campers roared with laughter as the staff and councilors efficiently made fools out of themselves for the entertainment of the children at staff skit night. Laughter died down and campers were dismissed to their cabins, but not for long because next comes clan initiation! The kids are all divided into 4 clans and each clan gets their own fun and challenging bonding activity and after the completion they are welcomed into that clan for the week of highland games at TTR. Campers will sleep well tonight and are sure to wake up ready and excited for even more fun to come.
5 May the God of endurance and encouragement grant you to live in such harmony with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus, 6 that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. 7 Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God. -Romans 15:5-7
