We’re Off to Camp Lakewood!

Why do we do summer camp? We do summer camp because:

IMG_6811I did the Mammoth Swing today and screamed! I was so scared! But my friends encouraged me and cheered me on. They prayed with me to be brave!

I made seven new friends this week!

I learned that God loves me even when I lie.

I didn’t know my sins kept me away from God. That’s sad. I don’t want to be sad.

IMG_6790I spent the night away from home! I was really nervous but I liked my bunk bed up on top. And my new friends.

I learned that Jesus loves me enough to die for my sins. And I can be in heaven with Him, someday. It’s going to be beautiful!

I learned that Jesus forgives me. Even when I hurt my sister’s feelings.

I learned that I like to swim under water!IMG_6771

I prayed out loud today in my cabin with my friends and counselors. I’ve never done that before! It was awesome!

I felt God hugging me.

I found the story of Jonah in the Bible!

My counselor really likes me. And I like when he tells me about God.

My friend from last yeIMG_6580ar, who I didn’t know before, who is eight like me, and we both like yellow, was in my cabin again! It was a surprise! And I liked it.

I learned that God is always with me.

I want Jesus to be my Friend, forever.

Just a few reasons we do camp. The list could really go on. And on. And on.

Summer camp is a place where kids experience God. A place where Jesus becomes real. A place where everyday life revolves around faith. All mixed up in a whole lot of fun. It’s like heaven really. On earth. Now.
