Although today is the last full day of Adventure Camp, it’s going to be an epic one! This grand day has already been kicked off with a thrilling ski show that included intense blobbing, wakeboarding, kneeboarding, jetskiing, and more. All the kids loved it and can’t wait for the rest of the day’s fun activities.
At Big Lake we strive to keep attitudes of positivity and service – this not only applies to staff, but to campers as well. The cool thing about positive attitudes is that they are contagious. When staff stay positive, the campers do as well, and that just gives camp a better, more Christ-like atmosphere to function in. A great example of this just happened yesterday. A boys’ cabin was about to start a waterfront activity, and everyone was getting their lifejackets on. There ended up not being enough mens’ lifejackets for all the campers, so one boy had to wear a ladies’ lifejacket. Instead of grumbling about it, this boy perked up and said, “I am going to have a positive attitude about this!” For the rest of the time he went around smiling and enjoying the activity. This story is cute but also makes me so happy, because we can see that we are truly reaching out to these awesome kids. I love that camp is a place where people can clearly see God shine through others and gain a fresh perspective on life.
Here is a sweet picture from the ski show! More are featured on Facebook!
