The Relaxed Nature of Camp

A picture that doesn

I titled this post that because camp is one of the few places where life doesn’t seem to creep up on me, and I assume I’m not alone. It’s one of the few places where I can sneak away for a little while, get my head back on my shoulders and attack life head on, again. Today was one of those days. A day to relax, a day to take a deep breath, refocus and continue fighting the daily battles.

With that said, today was a relatively easy day here at camp. We took the swim test, we took our pictures, and the campers got them already. (so if you don’t see them when you pick up your kids, don’t look at me. My job is complete. 🙂 ) We played giant soccer and regular soccer on the soccer field/sand pit.

Shane spoke tonight about Abraham, how he followed God faithfully and how we are called to do the same. Abraham dropped everything, his family, his friends, his homeland and went to a foreign land to follow God’s calling and once he got there, he had to wait 25 years for God to fulfill his promises. Something we can all use a little more of, patience, including yours truly.

Tonight, we’re playing Fugitives. Essentially, it’s a boys versus girls manhunt. The guys are acting as fugitives, who escaped from an overturned prison bus. They’re bound at the feet by some cloth and have to hide from the girls. As extra incentive, tomorrow, if the girls find a pair of guys and bring them back to the dining hall, they get to be served breakfast by the guys that they caught. If guys go through the whole night without getting caught, they are served breakfast by the girls who failed to bring back some guys. That’s the unofficial plan as of now. We’ll see how it goes.
