2nd & 3rd Grade Camp

Unplugged

Dean: Shannon Hogan & Sarah Higgins
Check-in: June 5 @ 6:30pm
Parent Pick-up: June 7 @ 3:00pm

This camp will reinforce the importance of connecting to our Bibles. Each lesson will teach kids how to “unplug” from an incorrect assumption about the Bible and “plug into” a corresponding truth. It also emphasizes the importance of an actual, physical Bible, despite the merits of a Bible app.

What is your favorite Bible verse?
“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:
a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.” (Ecclesiastes 3:1-8).
What does camp ministry mean to you? 
I grew up going to church camp every year and know the spiritual growth that can take place in such a short amount of time.
What is your favorite camp memory?
I still have scripture in my heart and mind because of the memorization challenges given at camp years ago.  I love that I can still recall them when needed.

What is your favorite Bible verse?
“When times are good, be happy; but when times are bad, consider this:
God has made the one as well as the other.” (Ecclesiastes 7:14).
What does camp ministry mean to you?
Camp ministry is so important to me because it’s a place where kids and students can experience something out of the ordinary.  It allows designated time for kids to develop their faith in a way that doesn’t happen very often.  Big life decisions undoubtedly happen for kids and students while they are at camp.  Campers realize how to deepen their faith or better develop spiritual disciplines.   Many life-altering decisions have been made at camp.  The decision to lead a life of purity or the decision to become a follower of Jesus for the very first time, or even the decision to enter into vocational ministry.  These decisions happen while at camp. Many friendships are often strengthened while attending a week of camp.  Those shared experiences will leave an impression on the hearts of the kids who attend and they are not replaceable.  Camp also is a place where kids and students learn the gospel truth (or at least they should be) and they are also challenged to not only live it out when they leave but to share it with others who were not able to be there.  There are so many advantages to camp ministry.  I love it!
What is your favorite camp memory?
I was baptized at camp when I was 13 years old by my Dad.  I remember standing in the lake with fish swimming around my feet waiting for my turn to step up to my Dad who prayed over me and baptized me.  It was a wonderful feeling and it’s an experience that I will never ever forget.
What is your favorite dessert? 
Fruit Pizza Cookies or Reese’s Cups
