Youth Group Challenge 2012 Winners

Congratulations to The Word church in Williamstown on their victory in the 2012 Youth Group Challenge held at the camp this past Sunday. For winning the challenge, they received a free weekend rental for their group and the coveted Golden Gnome trophy. The group was relatively new to camp (they were introduced by one of their youth, Ashley Seigman) so it took them a little time to get used to all of the sand everywhere, but they pulled it out in the end. Thanks to all of the other youth groups for participating in the challenge. Did your youth group miss out on the challenge? Join us next May for Youth Group Challenge 2013.
