Special Camp - That's A Wrap!

Well Special Camp closed with a bang!

We changed our schedule and the camper were on their way home by 1 PM on Friday afternoon. This was done for a couple of reasons, first the group homes were having to send someone to pick up the campers on Saturday which usually meant overtime pay. Good for drivers - Bad for group homes. Second, some group homes forgot to send someone and we had camper on the grounds until as late as 2 PM on Saturday's. Third, the camper are worn out by Friday morning. And fourth, the counselors are tired as well.

Friday morning saw the last of the pontoon boat rides that were postponed earlier in the week because of wind and rain. So every camper that wanted a ride on the pontoon boat was able to get that ride!

Bible class time, craft time and counselor/camper time was completed on Friday before noon and lunch followed. After lunch we held our final chapel service with Pastor Garry Moore. He did a great job all week not just with the campers but also challenging the counselors and staff as well! Praise God for Pastor Moore's ministry!

Special Camp 2007 is in the book. Done and done! A very special thank to all who make camp possible, with out your help there is no way we could do the things that God allows us to do and accomplish!

I'm already looking forward to Special Camp 2008 - "The Rescue Zone"

That's A Wrap,
Pastor Steve
