Reflections: Girls Camp 2009

From the Director of Girls Camp 2009:

This year at Girls Camp we had the privilege of seeing the Lord's amazing power moving in hearts and lives! Our theme this year was Firmly Planted on God's promises with the tag line of "God's promises are always, always, always, always true!" Opening our Monday chapel time with staff testimonies, the staff had the opportunity to share how God has been faithful in their lives. During our camper testimony time at the campfire on Friday night we had the joy of seeing the girls be able to apply the things they were learning to their own lives. The schedule was full of a wide variety of activities, everything from a glow in the dark party to our 80's banquet. We are so thankful to have been a part of the girls' lives for the week and really count it a privilege to be used by the Lord in this way!

-Missy

7th and 8th Grade Girl's Camp

Reflections from the Director

In planning Girls Camp this year, it was on our hearts to focus on "hypocrisy." Girls in this day and age are bombarded with so many lies that tell them who they should and shouldn’t be. We wanted to take the week to help them understand that with God’s help they can take off all the “masks” they have been wearing and be the person God created them to be. We focused our class time, chapel time, and even our activities around this theme to help them further understand the importance of living without masks. One of the highlights of the week was our formal Masquerade Banquet. The girls wore actual masks that they had make earlier in the week and at the end of the evening we had a ceremony where we removed their masks and gave them each a verse to help them remember that with God’s help they can be who He wants them to be. We are very thankful for how the Lord worked in the staff and the camper’s lives during our week!
