Helping out at Camp

Yesterday, I attended two training sessions. The first was for our church’s Kids’ Camp Adventure Island – kind of like a vacation bible school on steroids for kids 4 years old through 5th grade. The second was for our church’s Stretch Get Out of the Box Camp – a night time camp for middle school students.

I’m excited to be involved in both of these camps. For one, I know that I will have a real blast playing with the kids. Secondly, it’s awesome to be involved in activities that really help to make an eternal difference in our community. And finally, I love the chance to connect with other adults who are getting outside the box to help out.

I think the other things that is cool about these events is that it gives me a chance to give back. I was extremely blessed to experience all kinds of bible schools, summer camps, youth retreats, etc. thanks to wonderful volunteers like Ray and Joann Rivera, Dave and Nora Kennedy, Ken and Kathy Shumate, Bill and Elaine McFarland, and Pete and Janice Dearstyne (just to name a few).

I’ll let you know how it goes….

Until the next post….
