The easiest parts of camp to advertise are the exciting activities. You know the ones - zip line, rock wall, archery - the list goes on. This week, our campers get to experience all those fun adventures and more as part of our Adventure Camp program, but it's important to remember that the greatest adventure of all isn't something you'll find written on an itinerary.
The rock wall teaches us not to fear a challenge, because someone will be there to catch us when we fall. From archery we learn that it can be easy to miss the mark, and getting the results we want takes practice, patience, and determination. The zip line shows us that sometimes faith is a leap, and Bible Study teaches us that faith doesn't happen alone. This is the ultimate purpose of camping ministry - to send campers home with more stories than mosquito bites, stories that will act as the strong foundation for a life of faith.
