Night two! We had an awesome first day at Kerr Street Day Camp! It was amazing to meet and start getting to know the campers and the camp staff. We started the day off with the first “Morning Meeting” skit which was a hit – the kids loved Curious George! Then we split up and got to meet all the kids in our groups. In the morning, we played soccer and taught the kids about the armour of God – today was the belt of truth. Then we had a refreshing afternoon either swimming with the 11 & 12 age group, or having a giant water fight with all the other campers.
Following camp, we headed back to our host homes for separate Guys/Girls nights. We all got to swim again and had some meaningful time of reflecting on the day.
– Highlights (Like, meeting and connecting with the campers and having some pretty cool moments)
– Things that surprised us (How exhausting is really can be!)
– and what God is already teaching us. (Patience, to serve in His strength and not our own, etc.)
As we head into Tuesday, please be praying for continued strength and energy and that we take advantage of the opportunities we have to love on the kids at Kerr Street, to hear their stories, and to be the hands and feet of Jesus in the way we love and serve them this week.
