Summer Camp 2009!

Every morning at camp, we would wake up, get all spiffy, and then head out to eat breakfast. And every morning, there would be another spectacular view of the lake, the sky, and the green in betwween waiting for us.

It is kind of hard to see in this picture, and it was never as dark as it shows here, but this is actually what i got to wake up to every morning at camp. Lucky me. :]

Especially getting back from Wordview, i was expecting a lot from this experience. But i forgot to take into account that this was camp not an acadamy. And i got a lot less than i expected.

Don't take this the wrong way, i loved it! But after Worldview, everything was just redundant. This year, we were going over evangelism. And afer Worldview, (again) i was expecting more.

The only thing i disagreed with was the fact that they taught us that we have to know our testimony inside and out, and we have to know everything we are going to say and how we are supposed to say it.

I know that the bible says to always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have, (I Peter 3:15) but i don't think we had to get into as much detail as we did. When we were there, they were figuring out transitional words, like when you were witnessing, it would be like reading off of a script.

But that was my one and only problem. Besides that, everything was wonderful. Even the 12 hour road trip where i finished three quarters of a book! The rest of the time was spent sleeping or trying to sleep. Happily, no one on our bus got sick. :]
