IMG_1248The sun rose high in the sky on to a quite summer morning here at Tall Timber Ranch, but everything soon exploded with life as all 67 Junior High Campers arrived for a whole week of crazy fun and worship! The buzz soon settled down as parents tucked kids away in their cabins for the week and returned home. The first all camp activity was a big group of mixers for councilors and campers to get to know everyone here for the week with some exciting games. After dinner everyone squeezed onto the A-frame benches and settled in to enjoy Staff intro skit night where all staff make great fools of themselves for the entertainment of all. The evening came to a close with a campfire, some silly songs, and a talk from this week’s speaker Clifford.IMG_1243 The unexpected twist of the evening was Clan Initiation! Campers were divided into 4 clans, McPherson, Stuart, Finnegan, and Campbell and sent off for separate fun activities to welcome them to the clan and start clan bonding in preparation for the highland games at weeks end!

John 15:12-15 “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you. No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you.
