For many of us that phrase brings back amazing memories of weeks away from family and responsibilities, meeting new friends, learning new things, and having tons of fun. Last week we took our Summit kids (4th – 6th grade) to summer camp for the first time in CH history. That is exactly what they experienced, and more!
Our kids spent the week swimming, kayaking, and playing games, but most importantly I watched our kids experience genuine encounters with Jesus through worship, prayer, Bible teaching and quiet time with God. At the end of the week, we even watched a few of our campers choose to be baptized this past weekend at our annual BBQ Beach Baptism at City Beach here in Sandpoint.
I know our kids will remember their time at camp for years to come. In particular, they’ll remember the things God spoke into their lives and the deep conversations they had with their counselors. I can think of few better ways for them to spend a week of their summer.
We’re already planning for next year!
