This year our family minus Ella with Ashton added were able to attend the Apologetics Press Camp.
My friend Cheryl and I were counselors to the 7,8, and 9 year old girls(Laney's age).
Here is where we stayed.
Here was our group of crazy girls.
Laney said she really loved camp! She must have because this is about the only time I really got to see her.
A typical day consisted of ......
Activity time( sports, crafts,swimming, creek)
Here are a few highlights from the week.
We were split up into teams and played each other in kickball, soccer, basketball, frisbee and volleyball. At the end of the week, the points were tallied and Carmel's team ended up winning.
The kids who did not want to play sports could make a craft. They made things like......
1. A bracelet
2. Tye dye pillowcase
3. Hand stitched bag
4. Basket weaving
I think the bracelet was the most popular among all the campers.
After sports, the girls could swim first and then the boys. Laney and a couple of her buddies Ashlyn and Madison.
Some chose to go to the creek instead to swim or canoe.
We were able to make time for a quick date while we were there.
For the nightly activities, we played games like guys racing to dress up....
in women's clothing.
As you can see, we had a lot of fun activities to choose from during the week but the best part about attending a Christian Camp is the spiritual growth. If you are not familiar with Apologetics Press, you can go here to find out more.
Several different men came to speak during class and at night for worship. Each one spoke of evidences to prove that God does exist. It is amazing that there are people willing to believe we arrived here from nothing rather than from God.
As we ended a wonderful week at camp, we had to take a few more pictures to capture the lasting memories we made together.
A few from our youth group that went.
Several churches from Montgomery attended this camp. We were so excited to see several familiar faces. These girls were in the same cabin with Laney. In the middle of the week, I overheard one of them telling someone else her last name. Once I heard it, I knew exactly who she was. Her family and ours attended the same church while we lived in Montgomery. Laney and her were babies together. Once I told Laney about this connection, they were instant friends.
Carmel announced, "Griffin would like a picture with some of his friends."
LOOK who all came running!
My friend who helped me keep all those 7,8, and 9 year old girls in line.
We can't wait for next year!
