Hello Mother…Hello Father…Here we are from Camp Ca-na-da!

It has been a fun and fabulous summer in the youth group and we aren’t even half way there! This summer the youth group has, is, or will go to two summer camps, a mission trip to Canada, and a summer blow out adventure at the Helen Water Park.

Last month our High School students were off to Camp Wafloy in Gatlinburg Tennessee for a wonderful week of camp where we got to experience white water rafting, a wild cave tour, Dollywood and Splash Country theme parks, zip-lining, and  so much more. It was a life-changing week where we were able to do so much together and return with even more memories. But the highlight of the week came on Friday night when we surprised the students after lights out with a mountain top worship under the stars.

This week we are in Edmonton, Alberta, with seven of our college students, serving as camp counselors at Summer Youth Celebration with students from all across Western Canada. It has been an incredible week watching our students serve and love young people while teaching them the person and character of Jesus Christ. I could not be more proud of our group as they have jumped right into all the new things camp has to offer, with shinning colors and energy to spare despite starting the week of with 4:00am jet lag.
