We won!!!!!!!!!!! I know it’s means nothing to those not involved in our ministry, but winning the golden crate is a big deal. We got the crate! It was all thanks to our StreetLeaders for writing the song and helping the kids learn it and to our interns for spending hours on the mascot and decoration! Great team work!

When we found out we won, we screamed, jumping up and down and hugging each other, for 15 minutes. ­čÖé

Camp Faith on All Camp Day

All Camp Day

Mascots

All Camp Day is the most important day of the summer. All seven summer camps in our ministry join together for a day of competition, songs, games and Bible lesson. Each camp dresses up in their camp color, we have a camp mascot and vehicle, and camp song. It’s very competitive and winning the “Golden Crate” (a basket full of candy) gives you bragging rights for an entire year. This year our mascot was Captain Crunch, the kids dressed up as pirates and our camp song was soooo good.

“We just havin’ a good time,
The devil tryin’ ruin it,
Shout out to to the fact that we the
youngest camp doin’ it!”

Summer staff 2010

My summer staff – StreetLeaders and Interns (minus a few). We got along really well! There’s a great wall of graffiti near the skating rink and Camden and it’s tradition to have our staff group photo taken there.

With our StreetLeaders, the interns and I spent an evening bowling. It was a lot of fun and hilarious to watch people try to sabotage each other’s games.

All together now...

The Christian sports ministry called Push the Rock came to visit us this week – running field games and a basketball clinic. The coaches worked really well with the kids and everyone had a great time. ┬áSeeing the kids have to run and be athletic was really good for them. ┬áMaybe it’s not just an urban kid thing, maybe a general childhood problem these days, but our kids spend a lot of time inside playing video games or watching television. ┬áAnd in Camden, there aren’t a lot of safe, open fields or playground in which to play. ┬áSo, I’m really glad the kids had a chance to be active!

At the end of the day when it was all finished, some of the first graders asked me, “So when are we going to push the rock?” ­čÖé
