This year at the Fall Retreat, the leaders decided to split up the junior and senior high students and basically operated two different camp programs in one place. On Friday night, the jr. high campers played hockey in the pavilion, while the senior high campers played with trash cans. Check out the videos and see for yourself.
One of the most awesome weeks of the summer begins tonight! Tucker Camp has been a staple in the summer season for the past six years. With creative ideas as to how to run their camp and a solid staff willing to help, campers have always appreciated Tucker Camp. Some of their past themes have been “Authentic Life,” “A different way to be,” “Ignite,” “I am…” and “Living on Purpose.” This year’s theme is “More and More.” If their past camps are any example of how fun this week should be, we’re going to be in for a fun, epic week.
Our speaker, Shane Smith, will be joining us tomorrow night to begin his sermon. He likes to try to learn everyone’s names by the end of the week. He usually speaks for Junior High III, which typically draws in about 100+ campers each week. So, I expect that 75 or so campers will not be a problem for him, at least in theory.
We had some mingle games tonight, Tucker Camp style, including some fan favorites, Women Wrestling over Men (essentially musical chairs with men as the chairs), Amazon Women (the men lie in the middle of the floor, link arms, legs, other appendages, if there are any and the women try and pull us apart), Streets and Alleys and some other fun games.
Thanks for letting your kids join us this week! It’s one we’re all looking forward to!
