It's Wednesday morning and we are officially on the 'second half' of camp. So far it has been a fantastic week. We have a young, but really energetic, group of counselors mixed with a fair number of parents and even a 76 year old gentleman who are really stepping up to make camp a great experience for our kids. We've attended Thousand Pines camp for about 9 years now and it continues to be a great fit for our ministry. Mountain bikes, paintball, ropes course, zip line, swimming, off road tours (in these super sweet off road golf carts), skate park and a really good craft shop are just some of the activities the students can chose from. They also have a disc golf course that is absolutely killing us! It's cut out of the forest and unless you can throw perfectly straight, you spend half your time searching for your disc among lots of bushes and dead trees (bushes and dead trees that I'm convinced are home to bears and snakes...).
I'm praying that this year's camp will be a spiritual marker in the lives of our students that they'll remember for years to come.
