Reflections: Family Camp 2009

From Kelly Siler:

There may have been just a small amount of families, but that definitely didn't hinder the magnitude of how God worked in the lives of those of us who were able to attend Family Camp 2009. We were we able to enjoy great food, wonderful fellowship, and a short retreat (Sunday through Wednesday) with our families down at camp.

While the kids were out experiencing nature programs, the parents were blessed by the video series from the 2009 "Focus on Marriage" Conference. Though it was originally broadcast as a national simulcast conference, we didn't feel like it was at all second-rate. The Lord still used the speakers from that conference to make a deep impact on our marriages -- the foundation of our families.

I think it's safe to say that we all left camp encouraged, well-nourished, and with a purer love for our spouse and family. Oh, and I probably shouldn't talk about how much fun we (the parents) had playing "Digital Praise" one evening because I'm still not sure if we broke a rule by "dancing" at camp or not...

Reflections: Family Camp #1

Reflections from the Director

Family Camp 2008 was a wonderful time shared by over 20 families. The group spread over the full continuum of the age spectrum - with ages randing from two years old to grandparents. The 37 children, 6th grade and under, were treated to a safari each morning during their lesson times that were headed up by Luke and Anita H. Our 34 teens were challenged daily by Jason and Kristin C. as they studied the book, Do Hard Things. The adults were blessed every morning by the ministry of Keith L. as we thought about the different types of love.

We shared lots of laughs and fellowship throughout the days at the pool, the softball field, the golf course, Patti's house, the archery range, the dinner tables, and - of course - at the evening adult special meeting time!

As always, the LWBC camp staff did an excellent job of preparing for us, and the nature programs were all well worth attending - even though there were no bats! Thanks to everyone at camp that made this week possible! You make it so easy for the directors!

-Kurt and Lori F.
